One user replied: "It's way too big to be anything but a ship, and there is a large port very close by."

Another said: "Interesting. Maybe a submarine?"

A third added: "Occam's Razor… A rocket booster? A submarine? A rotting shipwreck."

A fourth added: "Unless it was NKs first and only nuclear sub."

The news comes following Kim Jong Un's vow to build an "invincible" military for North Korea. He also blasted the US, claiming they are the "root cause" of instability in the region.

It appeared to be an effort to drive a wedge between Washington and South Korea as he delivered a speech at the Defense Development Exhibition Self-Defense-2021, an event to mark the 76th birthday of the ruling Workers' party in the country.

Kim said that his country's most important objective was owning an "invincible military capability" that no one can dare to challenge.

He launched an attack on US President Joe Biden's claims that the country is not hostile towards North Korea.
