North Korea tested a "super-large multiple rocket launcher", the country's state news agency announced on Sunday.
The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un oversaw the test and was pleased with the progress of the country’s defense industry.
Kim said the new rocket launcher was a "great weapon".
South Korea's military announced that Pyongyang fired two suspected short-range ballistic missiles off its east coast on early Saturday and that they flew roughly 380 kilometers (236 miles) at a maximum altitude of 97 kilometers (60 miles).
North Korea launched a total of seven tests over the last month.
Regarding these tests, U.S. President Donald Trump downplayed the latest launch saying: "He likes testing missiles, but we never restricted short-range missiles.”
Trump added that he had a very good relationship with North Korea’s leader.
