North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspected a newly built submarine and pointed out its tactical capabilities and weapons systems, North Korea's official news agency KCNA said on Tuesday. The submarine, which was built under Kim's "special attention", will be operational in the East Sea, also known as the Sea of Japan, KCNA said.

KCNA released still photographs of Kim looking around submarine, but did not describe the kind of weapons systems the submarine contained or when the inspection took place. Kim tasked defence and scientific officials accompanying him with achieving more strategic initiatives in submarine use, state media said.
