PYONGYANG, May 30 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Tuesday confirmed it successfully test fired another ballistic missile on Monday, the third in one month, according to official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
The report said the missile was a medium-range rocket launched from a mobile pad vehicle "through a precision control guidance system."
DPRK supreme leader Kim Jong Un guided the test fire, said the report.
The test-fire was aimed at "verifying the technological indices of the new-type precision guided ballistic rocket capable of making ultra-precision strike on the enemies' objects at any area," according to the report.
A new caterpillar pad vehicle carrying the missile was also tested this time in the launch after it joined a military parade last month for the first time.
