DEAR leader Kim Jong-un has been taking a spin on a submarine, newly released pictures show.
In images reminiscent of 'Team America: World Police', he has been pictured on a submarine's bridge during a visit to a base where he said it was necessary to "bolster up the underwater operation capability of submarines".
The pictures were released by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), show Mr Kim, taking charge of a drill, although he has no maritime training.
The North Korean dictator "set the course of the submarine to the captain and taught him a good method of navigation," on his visit to Korean People's Army's Naval Unit 167, KCNA reported.
"The Party Central Committee is attaching great importance to the combined units of submarines," Mr Kim added.
