Seoul, AP. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reviews powerful missiles developed to carry out nuclear strikes on America. During this, Kim has announced to create an invincible army to face America. Kim, at a rare exhibition of weapons systems, stressed that his military is not ready to attack South Korea.
Kim said on Monday that the US has often mentioned that it is not our enemy, but has not yet taken any action to make us believe, according to the official Korean Central News Agency. Kim said the US continues to create tension in the region with its wrong decisions and actions.
Describing the United States as the source of instability on the Korean peninsula, Kim said that our most important objective is to develop an invincible military capability that no one would dare to challenge us. According to Seoul officials, the exhibition was organized to mark the 76th foundation day of the ruling Workers’ Party on Sunday. It was the first of its kind since Kim came to power in late 2011.
Experts say the exhibition featured a range of newly developed weapons, including intercontinental ballistic missiles, which North Korea has already displayed during military parades in recent years. “Basically, the message North Korea wants to send is that we will continue to develop new weapons and equip ourselves with nuclear power,” said Yang Wook, a military expert at South Korea’s Hannam University.
Seoul’s defense ministry said South Korean and US intelligence officials were analyzing North Korean weapons. In recent weeks, North Korea has resumed its missile tests after a six-month hiatus and offered conditional talks with South Korea.
During his exhibition speech, Kim said, ‘I say once again that South Korea is not what our military forces have to fight. Certainly we are not strengthening our defense capability because of South Korea. We must not repeat the terrible history of using force against each other.
