North Korea’s supreme leader, Kim Jong-un, insisted that his country would not discontinue its nuclear weapons program, which it considers necessary to counter threats from the United States, while “defending” this North American power. Calling for the eventual collapse of North Koreans and their government, state media said on Friday.

Kim made the remarks during a speech in parliament on Thursday, where lawmakers unanimously approved the nuclear weapons law, described by the Supreme Leader as “A step to strengthen the nuclear state” and made it clear that such weapons were not being discussed.

This was announced by the Office of the Secretary-General of the United Nations Organization (UN), Antonio Guterres. There is “deep concern” about the new law, noting that North Korea’s pursuit of a weapons program “continues to ignore Security Council resolutions that seek to deter such activities.”

“The Secretary-General reiterated his call for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to achieve lasting peace and to resume negotiations with the major parties involved in the pursuit of complete and verifiable denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” Guterres said.

Kim also criticized South Korea for plans to expand its conventional strike capabilities and revive large-scale joint military exercises with the United States to counter growing threats from the north. The answer claims “These are dangerous military actions.”

“The purpose of the United States is not only to eliminate our own nuclear power, but to ultimately force us to surrender or undermine our rights of self-defense by giving up our nuclear weapons, so that they may at any time demolish our government.” can do.”
