The North Korean leader has threatened to use nuclear weapons in response to any attack
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un supervised the launch of an ICBM accompanied by his daughter, whom he was introducing to the world for the first time, according to images released yesterday by the official North Korean news agency, and threatened that he would use nuclear weapons in the event of a nuclear attack on his country.
The North Korean leader stressed that the ICBM is a reliable weapon with maximum capacity to contain external threats.
And the official North Korean news agency said, “Kim walked to the launch site of the Hwasong-17 rocket with his beloved daughter and wife.” And state media released pictures of Kim walking in front of a huge rocket, accompanied by his daughter, who was wearing a white one Jacket North Korea’s successful missile launch.
The agency said the rocket flew at a maximum altitude of 6040.9 km and covered a distance of 999.2 km before landing exactly in the designated area in the East Sea or the Sea of Japan.
“The test launch has clearly confirmed that the new strategic large arms system is reliable,” North Korean state media confirmed.
Since Kim announced last September that “North Korea has formally adopted a policy rendering its nuclear status irreversible,” Washington has increased regional security cooperation, including conducting joint military exercises and exploring ways to protect Seoul and Korea , improve Tokyo.
Seoul and Washington conducted the largest joint air exercises in their history in late October and early November, and South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that South Korea and the United States yesterday conducted a joint air exercise with the B-1B strategic bomber US Air Force reissued in the Korean Peninsula.
The American bomber was deployed between Seoul and Washington as part of joint air exercises, and the South Korean chiefs of staff said some of the most advanced aircraft in the US and South Korean air forces took part in the exercises, including the F-35 concealed fighters.
The B-1B supersonic bomber no longer carries nuclear weapons, but the US Air Force considers it “the backbone of the long-range bomber weapon” capable of striking anywhere in the world.
Kim described the maneuvers as a “hysterical war of aggression” and vowed to respond decisively and with nuclear weapons to any use of nuclear weapons, according to the Korean Central News Agency.
North Korea said March 24 that it had tested the Hwasong-17 missile, which is among Pyongyang’s most powerful weapons. In early November, Pyongyang launched an unprecedented series of missile tests, one of which fell near South Korean territorial waters.
On November 2 alone, 23 North Korean missiles were fired, more than all the missiles fired in 2017, when the North Korean leader and then-US President Donald Trump exchanged threats of a nuclear response.
