Insight Online News
Pyongyang, July 28 : North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has said that his country is ready to mobilise its nuclear war deterrent, BBC reported on Thursday.
Speaking at a Korean War anniversary event, Kim said that his country was “fully ready for any military confrontation” with the US.
The comments come amid concern that North Korea could be preparing a seventh nuclear test, which the US had warned about last month.
North Korea’s most recent nuclear test was in 2017. However, tensions have been rising on the Korean peninsula, ever since.
The US special representative to North Korea Sung Kim says North Korea has tested an unprecedented number of missiles this year – 31 compared to 25 during the whole of its last record-breaking year, 2019.
In June South Korea responded by launching eight missiles of its own.
