North Korea focuses on aeronautics
The North Korean leader's announcement on the occasion of Airmen's Day
North Korea has made it known that it will rely on its air force to respond immediately to all military threats from its enemies. It was announced by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un who, during an inspection of the air force command on the occasion of Aviators' Day on November 29, invited the armed forces to improve its fighting posture.
"It has established operational and tactical policies that aim to put it in a fighting position and to increase its war-fighting capabilities to the fullest so as to immediately and forcefully counter any military provocations and threats of the enemy", is the report published by state news agency Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
The putting into orbit of the first spy satellite in recent days is part of the regime's initiatives to strengthen the air capabilities of the armed forces. Pyongyang stated that the space system had already taken, although without making them public, photos of ongoing activities (in the period 25-28 November) in the main military structures and installations in various parts of the world: South Korea, the United States, Italy.
