North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has made a bold statement regarding the use of nuclear weapons.
According to Reuters, Kim has declared that North Korea would not shy away from launching a nuclear attack if they are provoked with nuclear weapons by an enemy.
This assertive stance was articulated during a briefing to North Korea's missile bureau, where Kim Jong Un emphasized the importance of being prepared for nuclear retaliation.
"The readiness to respond with nuclear force in the face of enemy provocation is a critical aspect of our military strategy," Kim reportedly said, highlighting the nation's unwavering commitment to its nuclear capabilities.
The North Korean leader's comments come at a time of heightened tensions in the region, with concerns about North Korea's expanding nuclear arsenal and its potential implications for regional stability.
Kim Jong Un's warning is seen as a direct message to the international community about the seriousness with which North Korea views its nuclear program.
While Kim Jong Un did not specify what actions would be considered as provocation, his statement has been interpreted as a clear signal of North Korea's stance on nuclear deterrence.
