SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un warned he stands ready to use his nuclear weapons in possible military conflicts with the United States and South Korea, state media said on Thursday as he unleashed fiery rhetoric against rivals he believed to be a part of says they are pushing the Korean Peninsula to the brink of war.
Kim’s speech to war veterans marking the 69th anniversary of the end of the 1950-1953 Korean War was apparently intended to strengthen internal unity in the impoverished country amid pandemic-related economic difficulties. While Kim has increasingly threatened his rivals with nuclear weapons, it’s unlikely he would first use them against the superior militaries of the US and its allies, observers say.
