SEOUL, Aug. 25 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has called the North's test-firing of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) "the greatest success," the country's state media said Thursday.

The North's leader observed the launch of the missile Wednesday, saying it was the greatest success and victory, according to the official Korean Central News Agency.

The South Korean military said the missile flew about 500 kilometers toward Japan, making the longest flight by such a missile for the North.
