MADRID, 19 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, has assured this Saturday that if the "enemies" continue to threaten his country and resort to a nuclear attack, his country will react "resolutely" with nuclear weapons and total confrontation.
The North Korean news agency KCNA has reported that the leader has called for "constantly strengthening" strategic nuclear weapons and stimulating "more vigorously" the development of these weapons, as well as intensifying the training of nuclear weapons operation units to comply with the "important strategic duty" in any "situation and moment".
According to the same agency, Kim Jong Un has justified the importance of reinforcing his weapons of this nature due to the "recent dangerous situation in which the military threats of the United States and other hostile forces become increasingly evident."
These statements come after ballistic missile launches into the Sea of Japan for two consecutive days, after warning the United States that it would take "fiercer" military action if it continued its armed activity alongside Seoul and Tokyo.
North Korea has also confirmed that a test of a new intercontinental ballistic missile was carried out this Friday as part of the defense construction strategy, which "constitutes a priority" for the country within the framework of nuclear deterrence.
This week the United States, as well as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), have shared their evidence that it is "probable" that North Korea will carry out a test with nuclear missiles, the first since 2017, after having observed a escalation of tension in recent weeks.
