North Korea is preparing for nuclear war by intensively building up its strategic deterrent. It is obliged to do this by the recent situation in the sphere of global security.
According to the local news agency KCNA, this statement was made by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during a visit to the North Korean defense industry enterprise, which is considered the leading one.
“Kim Jong-un noted that the need to build up overwhelming forces to deter nuclear war will have to be even more seriously recognized in response to the state security situation that has arisen due to the reckless machinations of military confrontation on the part of enemies”, – said in a media report.
According to the North Korean leader, Pyongyang needs to prepare for a nuclear war so that the enemy does not dare to play with fire. He believes that, having made sure of the full combat readiness of the North Korean Armed Forces, the enemy will fear a direct military clash with them. Kim Jong-un notes that nuclear weapon is an effective deterrent to war.
During his visit to the defense enterprise, the North Korean leader carefully examined its production activities.
The North Korean military also test-launched a ballistic missile equipped with a new navigation system. It was its test that was the purpose of the launch, which was organized by the country’s Main Rocket Directorate. The launch of the missile was observed by Chairman of State Affairs of the North Korea Kim Jong-un.
The situation on the Korean Peninsula is more dangerous than it has been at any time since early June 1950. That may sound overly dramatic, but it is believed that, like his grandfather in 1950, Kim Jong Un has made a strategic decision to go to war. We do not know when or how Kim plans to pull the trigger, but the danger is already far beyond the routine warnings in Washington, Seoul and Tokyo about Pyongyang’s “provocations.”
