North Koreas large-sized artillery rockets blur the boundaries between artillery systems and ballistic missiles because they create their own thrust and are guided during delivery, Kim said.

North Korea has accelerated its missile testing programme.

He said that military would "proceed more thoroughly" with the ongoing Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise, a joint training drill between South Korea and the US that started Monday.

Pyongyang fired three short-range ballistic missiles from the Kangwon province, the US Pacific Command said.

Ordinarily, North Korea doesn't grant CNN access inside the country when the drills take place.

Kim Jong Un, the North Korean dictator, inspected a special operation forces training of the army which simulated attacks on South Korean islands, according to state media in Pyongyang.

"We understand that today's action indicated North Korea consistently continues developing nuclear weapons and missiles". "The situation could escalate at any moment".

Also on Tuesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson praised Pyongyang for demonstrating "some level of restraint", noting that there had been "no missile launches or provocative acts on the part of North Korea", since the United Nations Security Council voted August 5 to impose a $1 billion sanctions package against the country.

Solid fuel missiles are faster and easier to deploy, and harder to catch before they launch because there's a lot less to be done in terms of launch preparation.

North Korea has conducted two nuclear tests and dozens of missile tests since the beginning of a year ago.

It has fired more than 20 missiles since February, further perfecting its technology with each launch.

Tensions had eased since a harsh exchange of threats between Pyongyang and Washington after U.S. President Donald Trump had warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un he would face "fire and fury" if he threatened the United States.

Tillerson quickly tried to allay fears of a military confrontation, saying there was no sign the threat level from North Korea had changed and that Americans should "sleep well at night". Secretary of State Rex Tillerson earlier this week credited the North with showing restraint by not launching a missile since the late July ICBM test.

NPR's Elise Hu reports from Seoul that the US maintains the computer-based drills are purely defensive, but the North has long regarded them as preparations for invasion.
