North Korean leader Kim Jong UN ordered to prepare the country’s nuclear weapons to use at any time. About it reports Agency Yonhap, citing the state news Agency of the DPRK.
The President added that North Korea will reconsider its military strategy to be ready to make a preemptive strike.
On 2 March the UN security Council unanimously adopted “the toughest in 20 years” the package of sanctions against the DPRK because of its nuclear program and missile launch. The new restrictions include, in particular, mandatory inspection of cargo heading to North Korea or from it, a ban on the sale and supply of small arms and light weapons. New measures include the expulsion of all diplomats involved in “illegal activities”, decided the UN security Council.
In January North Korea announced the successful test of a hydrogen bomb. As noted by then Pyongyang, the DPRK will not use nuclear weapons unless it violated state sovereignty. In a month North Korea reported about the successful launch of the rocket which put into orbit the satellite 4 Kwangmyongsong (“Bright star-4”) designed to monitor the Earth.
The launch was criticized by almost all countries, including Russia. The UN security Council has promised to impose new sanctions against the DPRK. U.S. Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power declared that Washington “will facilitate the acceptance of serious measures by the Security Council against North Korea”.
