A report posted by Reuters said that Kim made the comments as he supervised military exercises.

The leader said North Korea should “bolster up (its) nuclear force both in quality and quantity” and strongly emphasized “the need to get the nuclear warheads deployed for national defence always on standby so as to be fired any moment.”

Kim also added:

“Now is the time for us to convert our mode of military counteraction toward the enemies into a pre-emptive attack one in every aspect.”

“We urge North Korea to refrain from provocative actions that aggravate tensions,” said U.S. Defense spokesman Commander Bill Urban.


In the past, North Korea has likewise threatened pre-emptive attack on its other enemies such as South Korea and the United States. Despite that, military experts are expressing doubt about the country’s capability to fire a long-range nuclear missile that can fire as far as the US.

The Defense Ministry of South Korea claims that last Thursday, “North launched several projectiles off its coast into the sea, up to 150 km (90 miles) away” which is “an apparent response to the U.N. sanctions.”

When reached for a comment, Commander Bill Urban, spokesman of the U.S. Defense Department said:

“We urge North Korea to refrain from provocative actions that aggravate tensions and instead focus on fulfilling its international obligations and commitments.”
