North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un told his military leaders during a meeting on Sunday to mobilize the most powerful means to destroy South Korea and the US, if either country chooses to go to war, according to state media reports.
Kim warned the leaders of the dangers of an armed confrontation that is quickly becoming a reality on the Korean peninsula.
He blamed manoeuvers by the US and other enemies, which would require North Korea to “sharpen the sword” to protect itself.
“If they chose military confrontation and set the fire, we must mobilize all the most powerful means…to deal a crushing blow and completely destroy them,” Kim was quoted as saying by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
The dictator hosted his senior military leaders at the ruling Workers’ Party headquarters to acknowledge and congratulate them on their accomplishments during 2023, KCNA said.
Kim also attended a late-night concert to celebrate the new year, KCNA added.
State media reported on Saturday that Kim’s New Year’s resolution was to develop more nuclear materials and launch three more military satellites in 2024. (Fox)
