FILE - In this Feb. 27, 2019, file photo, President Donald Trump meets North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Hanoi. North Korea has test-fired a "new-type tactical guided weapon," its state media announced Thursday, April 18, a move that could be an attempt to register the country's displeasure with currently deadlocked nuclear talks with the United States without causing those coveted negotiations to collapse.

SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea said Thursday that it had test-fired a new type of "tactical guided weapon," its first such test in nearly half a year, and a possible sign of its displeasure with deadlocked nuclear talks with the United States.

The test, which didn't appear to be of a banned mid- or long-range ballistic missile that could scuttle negotiations, allows Pyongyang to show its people it is pushing ahead with weapons development while also reassuring domestic military officials worried that diplomacy with Washington signals weakness.
