Kim Jong-un has ordered the North Korean military to prepare its nuclear weapons to be used “at any time”. In a chilling revealation, the dictator told army chiefs to be ready to launch immediate attacks on enemy countries whenever the mood takes him.
Paranoid Kim claimed the move comes amid growing threats from North Korea’s enemies forcing him to adopt “pre-emptive attack” mode. North Korea previously threatened attacks on its enemies, including South Korea and the US.
Kim made the comments as he supervised military exercises involving newly developed rocket launchers. State-run KCNA news agency did not mention the date of the drills but said the new weapons had South Korea within range.
Yesterday South Korea's defence ministry said the North launched several projectiles off its coast into the sea, up to 90 miles away - an apparent response to the U.N. sanctions.
Kim replied, saying North Korea must "bolster up (its) nuclear force both in quality and quantity" and stressed "the need to get the nuclear warheads deployed for national defence always on standby so as to be fired any moment.
