“Our armed forces are completely prepared to respond to any crisis, and our country’s nuclear war deterrent is also ready to mobilize its absolute power dutifully, exactly and swiftly in accordance with its mission,” Kim said in Wednesday’s speech, according to the official Korean Central News Agency.

Kim has accused the United States of “demonizing” North Korea to justify its policies and he also mentioned that the joint US-South Korea military exercises are meant to target North Korea.

He slams the United States for having double standards as when North Korea conducts its tests (mainly missile tests), they are branded as “provocations” or “threats”.

Kim has also termed the new South Korean government. Under the new president Yoon Suk Yeol as “ gangsters” and “confrontational maniacs”

“Talking about military action against our nation. Which possesses absolute weapons that they fear the most. Is preposterous and is very dangerous suicidal action. Such a dangerous attempt will be immediately punished by our powerful strength. And the Yoon Suk Yeol government and his military will be annihilated”. Kim stated.

Previously in April, Kim said that North Korea could pre-emptively use nuclear weapons if felt threatened.

These threats come as the Supreme Leader seeks greater support. As his country’s economy is ruined due to the pandemic induce border shutdowns. American sanctions and the country’s mismanagement in curtailing the spread of the virus. North Korea also lacks the infrastructure and modern medical capacity to handle the virus.
