North Korean leader Kim Jong Un oversaw the test of a & # 39; super-sized multiple rocket launcher & # 39 ;, said state news agency KCNA Sunday.

North Korea shot what appeared to be two short-range ballistic missiles in the sea off the east coast, the South Korean army confirmed.

It is the seventh round of weapon launches since the end of July and comes just a week after Kim Jong-un approved the launch of two separate missiles over the same area.

Experts claim that North Korea has made remarkable progress in their weapons program, of which an associate professor of political science at MIT could say that & # 39; could be a nightmare for Washington & # 39 ;.

Vipin Narang told the San Francisco Chronicle last week that the new rockets of the North are solid fuel, they are mobile, they are fast, they fly low and the KN-23 can at least maneuver during the flight, which is very impressive.

Each of the missiles would pose a challenge to regional and (South Korean) missile defense given these characteristics. Together they form a nightmare. & # 39;

Photos published by North Korean state media showed rockets launched from large tubes on the rear of an eight-wheeled vehicle.

North Korea needs to accelerate the development of new strategic and tactical weapons to combat & # 39; growing military threats and pressure offensive from enemy forces & quot; & quot; 39 said Kim Saturday, as reported by KCNA.

Kim called North Korea's young defense scientists who developed the missiles a & # 39; precious treasure and wealth of the country that can be exchanged for nothing.

On Saturday, a KCNA comment said that North Korea & # 39; will never trade the country's strategic security for the sanctions. & # 39;

The Japanese Coast Guard also reported the launch into the ocean and said the short-range projectiles did not reach Japanese waters, but they have warned shipping to prevent fallen debris.

US officials have attempted to restart the stalled talks with North Korea about its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs, which have been severely punished.

After the final tests, Trump reiterated his good relationship with Kim and said the North Korean leader & # 39; pretty honest & # 39; had been with him.
