According to reports, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un defied his country’s noose, saying there would be no more war, as the arsenal guarantees the future of the Harimit Kingdom amid security and military threats.
According to the official Korean Central News Agency, Despot made the remark during a reception for veterans, after celebrating the 67th anniversary of the end of the Korean War of 1950–53, which fell on 27– July.
Pyongyang developed the weapons to win “absolute power” to end the armed conflict, he said, emphasizing the defensive nature of the rogue regime’s nuclear program, Reuters reported.
“We are now able to defend ourselves from high intensity pressure and any form of military threats from imperialist and hostile forces,” Kim said.
“Thanks to our reliable and effective self-defensive nuclear deterrent, there will no longer be war, and our country’s security and future will be guaranteed forever”, Kim said.
Following his speech, North Korean and US officials recently commented that they were reluctant to participate in a new round of diplomacy on Pyongyang’s nuclear program soon.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that President Trump only wants to engage with Kim if there is real potential for progress.
Kim Yo Yo Jong, a senior ruling party official, said a new summit would be “impractical” for North Korea and would not award Pyongyang Trump a high-level sit-down award that he claimed as a foreign investment achievement can do.
The two leaders met three times when Kim suddenly reached for talks between Washington and Seoul after expressing his plan for nuclear talks in 2018.
Many experts cast doubt on Kim’s commitment to disarmament and said he only aimed to weaken US-led sanctions and shore up his nuclear program.
Nuclear diplomacy has mostly stalled after a second summit in Vietnam in February 2019 without reaching any agreement as Trump rejected Kim’s proposal to relieve widespread sanctions in exchange for a limited denuclearization move.
This year, Kim promised to step up his nuclear program and threatened to unveil a new “strategic” weapon. He also said that he would no longer be forced by a self-imposed ban on nuclear and long-range missile tests.
