North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly oversaw a test of a new anti-aircraft weapon system.

The North Korean leader ordered the weapon system’s mass production and deployment in the country, Reuters reported, citing the state news agency.

The test was reportedly organized by North Korea’s Academy of National Defense Science.

“Kim Jong Un … watched the test of a new type of anti-aircraft guided weapon system organized by the Academy of National Defence Science,” the North’s KCNA news agency said on Sunday.

“This weapon system, whose operation capability has been thoroughly verified, should be mass-produced to deploy all over the country … so as to completely spoil the enemy’s wild dream to command the air, boasting of air supremacy and weapon almighty,” it added.

Last week, North Korea said it was prepared to deploy a new medium-range missile as part of an “answer” to President Trump’s policies.

 That development came after North Korea launched a medium-range ballistic missile just hours before President Trump delivered a major speech in Saudi Arabia earlier this month.

The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency said last week that North Korea is on an “inevitable” path to getting a nuclear-armed missile that could reach the U.S. if it is not checked.
