North Korea will use nuclear warfare if attacked, Kim Jong-un warns



North Korea says US push for sanctions against it is laughable
Hard stance Korean leader Kim Jong-un has revealed that Pyongyang will not use its nuclear warfare unless it is provoked to do so by any of its perceived rivals.
Kim who was speaking at the National Workers Party Congress in the country’s capital also noted that North Korea may be willing to normalize ties with countries that have hitherto been hostile to it.
Kim who was addressing thousands of delegates gathered for the first Workers’ Party congress in more than 35 years said; “As a responsible nuclear weapons state, our republic will not use a nuclear weapon unless its sovereignty is encroached upon by any aggressive hostile forces with nukes.
“And it will faithfully fulfill its obligation for non-proliferation and strive for the global denuclearisation.” He added.
Al Jazeera’s Harry Fawcett, reporting from the South Korean capital, Seoul, noted that Kim’s latest comments were different from defiant statements made in recent weeks and months.
“The idea that North Korea would launch a preemptive nuclear strike has never been really likely, given the military response that would entail from the US,” Fawcett said, “However, Kim’s latest remarks do mark a shift in tone.”
