Senior officials of the Party Central Committee as well as national defence chiefs joined him at the site, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KNCA).

The KCNA did not describe the kind of weapons systems the submarine contained or when the inspection took place. Kim showed great satisfaction with the construction of ‘our kind of powerful submarine’, it said.

‘In a country where the country’s east and west is surrounded by the sea, the operational capability of submarines is an important component of national defence,’ Kim said.

North Korea ‘should continue to develop our national defence capability by putting great efforts in developing naval arms equipment, including submarines’, he said.

Kim tasked defence and scientific officials accompanying him with achieving more strategic initiatives in submarine use, state media said.
