Kim Jong-Un has appointed a new commander of the DPRK Air Force

Choi (Choi) Yong-ho has been appointed the new commander of the air and anti-aircraft forces of the Korean People's Army today, the DPRK Central Telegraph Agency reports. Ri Byung Chol, a former commander of the Korean People's Army, now takes the position of "responsible officer" of the DPRK Labor Party.

On Monday, the leader of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, ordered the construction of a new runway in the territory of the 458 part of the country's air force. At the same time, flight crew exercises were conducted. Kim Jong-un emphasized the importance of training fighter pilots who, in case of war, will have to defend the country in air battles.

Some experts regard such an appointment as an attempt to smooth the tensions that have arisen between South Korea and the DPRK. Others consider such frequent shifts in the leadership of the DPRK military forces (in June the Defense Minister of the DPRK was replaced), the desire of the head of state to weaken the influence of the "old" military on his foreign policy.
