Kim In Ryong said that North Korea never uses their nuclear weapons as political or economic leverage. He stated unequivocally that the DPRK has made a staunch decision to not discuss nuclear disarmament or abandonment of any kind.
The official said North Korea’s nuclear arsenal was due to Americas aggressive foreign policy in the past… Which I tend to agree with, recalling the indiscriminate bombings of civilians during the Korean war.
With everything heating up around North Korea, expect some action. What action will that be? We will have to wait and see. Read this article titled “North Korea Is Not A Threat To The United States” for more information regarding this situation.
Kim went on to say: “The nuclear force of the DPRK just serves as a treasured sword of justice and creditable war deterrent to protect the sovereignty and dignity of the country and global peace from the U.S threat to ignite a nuclear war.”
Another quote, absolutely true in our estimation: “[the United States] is wholly to blame for pushing the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war by staging the largest-ever joint aggression military drills against the DPRK for the past two months.”
You know you are living in strange times when you agree with much of what a North Korean official is saying.
Taking some artistic licence, if I was to sum up this officials sentiment in a sentence: “If you want our nukes, you’re going to have to take them from our cold, dead hands.”
