Kim Jong Un viewed photos of US bases taken from new satellite, state media says

North Korea says spy satellite will begin operations in 7-10 days, with plans to launch another in 2024

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un viewed images of U.S. military bases in the Pacific captured by the country’s new spy satellite on Wednesday, while visiting a space center shortly after the DPRK put the satellite into orbit, state media has reported.

During the visit to the Pyongyang General Control Center of the National Aerospace Technology Administration (NATA), Kim hailed the launch of the military reconnaissance satellite on Tuesday night as “a great event in developing the armed forces of the Republic” amid a changing security situation in the region, according to Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
