Kim Jong-un has labelled North Korea's latest missile tests "perfect", state media says, as he called for the isolated state to build up its nuclear arsenal.

Hours before the United Nations Security Council was set to meet to discuss Pyongyang's latest military provocation, the country's supreme leader hailed Monday's firing of three mid-range weapons.

Mr Kim supervised a drill by artillery units "tasked to strike the bases of the US imperialist aggressor forces in the Pacific operational theatre in a contingency," Pyongyang's KCNA news agency said.
