Amidst the highly volatile and mounting tension on the Korean Peninsula, a nuclear may break out at any moment, warned the country’s official representative.
Kim In Ryong, North Korea’s deputy UN ambassador reportedly told the UN General Assembly’s disarmament committee that this year North Korea completed its state nuclear force and thus became the full-fledged nuclear power which possesses the delivery means of various ranges, including the atomic bomb, H-bomb and intercontinental ballistic rockets.
He said North Korea has the right to possess nuclear weapons in self-defense as the country has been subjected to an extreme and direct nuclear threat from the US since the 1970s. Pointing out the large-scale military exercises that US conducts every year, he said US has been planning a secret operation to eliminate North Korea’s supreme leader and thus take down the country’s individuality.
He warned that the entire US mainland is within North Korea firing range and that they will bring hell to US if it dares to invade their sacred territory even an inch.
He told the disarmament committee that North Korea supports the total elimination of nuclear weapons and the denuclearization of the entire world. He blamed the United States for boycotting negotiations for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons that was approved in July this year, and constantly threatening and blackmailing North Korea with nuclear weapons.
He added that his country will never negotiate on developing nuclear weapons until and unless the nuclear threat of the US is thoroughly eradicated.
