‘Little rocket man’ Kim Jong-un shows his weapons

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has appeared at an exhibition showing North Korea‘s arsenal of arms, as shown in local media photographs. Among other things, Kim faced a giant long-distance missile, which was already shown in a military parade last year, but has not yet been tested.

Kim was also seen smoking with other dignitaries. And there were large portraits of the dictator in military uniform in the exhibition hall.

The exhibition, which was opened by seven fighter jets, follows several missile tests by North Korea in recent weeks. For example, a hypersonic missile was tested five times faster than the sound.

According to the North Korean leader, the increased military deployment is only necessary for self-defense and the country is not out for war. In particular, according to Kim โ€” who was nicknamed โ€œlittle rocket manโ€ by previous President Trump, the United States is acting hostile. That country, according to him, is the main cause of instability in the region.

Although President Joe Biden’s government has repeatedly indicated its desire to hold diplomatic talks with North Korea, Kim believes little of Biden‘s good intentions. โ€œI’m very curious if there are people or countries who believe that,โ€ KCNA Kim quotes news agency.

The communist North Korea, which has been isolated internationally, has been under severe sanctions by the Americans for decades. This includes great famine in the country.
