North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said that the country’s “nuclear warheads need to be ready for use at any time,” the North Korean state news agency KCNA reported Friday.
“Under the extreme situation that the U.S. Imperialist is misusing its military influence and is pressuring other countries and people to start war and catastrophe, the only way for our people to protect sovereignty and rights to live is to strengthen the quality and quantity of nuclear power and realize the balance of power,” Kim said, according to KCNA.
Reports say Kim Jung Un fired off very short range ballistic missiles into the sea.
The U.N. Security Council had voted to impose an array of sanctions against North Korea because of that nation’s earlier nuclear test and missile launch, both of which defied international sanctions.
This North Korean projectiles launch into the Sea of Japan is seen by analysts as a reaction by North Korea – a displeasure of that nation to the UN effrontery.
However, reports say that based on the missiles’ trajectory it does not threaten the United States or any of its allies.
