North Korea’s leader said that the United States must end all hostile policies towards North Korea in order to improve relations between the two states, Yonhap news agency reported on Saturday.
North Korea will use its nuclear warheads only in the event of enemy attack he specifically said : “unless hostile forces try to use nuclear weapons targeting us.”
“It is necessary to do so as to actively and fully deter and control the military threat that is forced on the Korean Peninsula, improving nuclear technologies, reducing the size and weight and increasing the strategic power of nuclear weapons,” Kim said to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
North Korea’s leader said it was necessary to develop strategic nuclear weapons that could be used in modern war in a variety of ways, depending on the target and the operation task.
Pyongyang may start a nuclear or long-range missile test ahead of or just shortly after the inauguration of US president-elect Joe Biden, using it as “leverage” in the denuclearisation negotiations .
