SEOUL, Sept. 6 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un observed the latest launch of ballistic missiles and stressed the need to bolster the country's nuclear forces, the state-run media said Tuesday.

The North's leader was present for the test-firing of ballistic rockets by artillery units of the Korean People's Army (KPA), according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

On Monday, North Korea test-fired three mid-range Rodong missiles toward Japan in an apparent show of force as the Group of 20 major economies summit meeting was held in China.

The launch also came four days before the 68th anniversary of the establishment of the North Korean regime.

The KCNA reported that Kim "stressed the need to continue making miraculous achievements in bolstering
up the nuclear force one after another."
