North Korea will remain committed to the country’s nuclear development in 2018, according to a report released Saturday by state-run news agency KCNA.
North Korea says it’s not backing down on nuclear development in 2018
« Do not expect any change in its policy, » the report read.
« Its entity as an invincible power can neither be undermined nor be stamped out. The DPRK, as a responsible nuclear weapons state, will lead the trend of history to the only road of independence and justice, weathering all tempests on this planet, » the report continued, referring to North Korea’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The report, titled « No Force Can Prevail over Independence and Justice, » provided a timeline of the country’s alleged 2017 nuclear weapon achievements, mostly focused on possible US engagement.
North Korea will « continue bolstering the capabilities for self-defense and preemptive attack with the nuclear force as the pivot as long as the US and its vassal forces persist in nuclear threat, » the report said.
North Korea boasted about its new capability to strike « the heart of the US » and its new « status » as a « world-class nuclear power. » It said it will « deal with the US’s most ferocious declaration of war with fire surely and definitely. »
