North Korea leader orders military to be ready to use nuclear weapons at any time

Posted on by

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered his country to be ready to use its nuclear weapons at any time and to turn its military posture to “pre-emptive attack” mode in the face of growing threats from its enemies, north Korea’s official KCNA news agency said on Friday.

The comments come after the U.N. Security Council imposed harsh new sanctions against the isolated state for its nuclear program.

North Korea has previously threatened pre-emptive attacks on its enemies including South Korea, Japan and the United States. Military experts doubt it has developed the capability to fire a long-range missile with a miniaturized warhead to deliver a nuclear weapon as far as the United States yet.
