North Korean leader Kim Jong Un oversaw a "successful test" of a super-large multiple launch rocket system and expressed "great satisfaction," state media said on Friday. North Korea fired two short-range projectiles into the sea off its east coast on Thursday. Pyongyang's official KCNA news agency confirmed the launch was aimed at finally examining the combat application of the weapon, which proved its military and technical power and its firm reliability.

The latest test could be a Thanksgiving reminder to the United States of a year-end deadline Kim has set for Washington to show flexibility in their stalled denuclearization talks.
