North Korea hails 'new birth' of its rocket power



North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un has announced a "new birth" in his country's rocket programme after overseeing a test.
 
It comes as the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson meets Chinese President Xi Jinping - who he hopes will help to curb North Korea's nuclear weapons programme.


North Korean state media said Mr Kim attended the test of a new high-thrust engine to propel rockets at the Sohae launch site.


Reports said the test was a success and that the engine would be used for the country's space and satellite-launching programme.
North Korea is banned by the UN from long-range missile tests but claims its satellite programme is for peaceful use.


Mr Kim said the "whole world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won today carries".
