PYONGYANG, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- Top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un has guided the test- fire of a Korean style ultra-precision high-performance tactical rocket on the occasion of the 69th anniversary of the nation's liberation, the official KCNA news agency reported Friday.

Before the test-fire, Kim was briefed on the engineering data of the rocket, which was developed under his guidance, said the KCNA.

The test-fire was "successful" and proved "the maneuverability of the tactical rocket in different trajectories fully meets the requirements of latest military science and technology," it said.

Kim expressed satisfaction with the test-fire result, appreciated hard work of officials, scientists and technicians in national defense and munitions factories, and expected them to continue to contribute to bolstering up the country's armed forces.

The DPRK said earlier that it will conduct more military drills on a regular basis to deal with the joint military maneuvers between South Korea and the United States.
