The North Korean leader targeted the US with his statements.
Kim Jong Un has also criticized South Korea.
Pyongyang. North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong Un is always in the headlines for his dictatorship and stubbornness. The leader of North Korea has once again targeted America with his statements. North Korean state media reported Friday that Kim insisted his country would never give up the nuclear weapons it needs to counter the United States. He has accused the US of undermining the country’s security and eventually toppling his government.
According to a report by the news agency AP, Kim Jong Un gave a speech in the North Korean parliament on Thursday and during this time he made these comments. Along with this, a law has also been passed in the North Korean parliament. Members of Parliament have passed a law regulating the use of nuclear weapons. Which Kim described as a move to strengthen and clarify the country’s nuclear position. He said that there will be no bargaining for such weapons.
The passed law authorizes the military to automatically launch nuclear strikes against enemy forces if its leadership is under attack.
Kim’s comments may explain rising regional tensions. Kim has also criticized South Korea’s plans to expand its conventional capabilities and resume large-scale military exercises with the United States to counter growing threats.
Kim has threatened to escalate the nuclear conflict to the US and its allies in Asia. It has also warned that North Korea would actively use its nuclear weapons if threatened. The North Korean leader’s remarks underscore the growing hostility in the region. Kim is rapidly expanding its nuclear weapons and missile programs.
Notably, Kim has launched more than 30 ballistic weapons this year at a record pace of weapons testing, including his first demonstration of intercontinental ballistic missiles since 2017. Kim continues to test ballistic weapons at sea.
