North Korea declared itself a 'nuclear rich' country, France said - it is a threat to international and regional peace
Nuclear Weapon: North Korean state media reported on Friday that Kim Jong Un vowed the country would "never give up" its nuclear weapons and said there could be no talks on denuclearization.
Nuclear Weapon State: France has condemned the passing of a law related to nuclear strikes by North Korea and called it a threat to international and regional peace. A Foreign Ministry spokesman said, "This new move by North Korea represents a threat to international and regional peace and security." "France is concerned about increasingly aggressive declarations by North Korea," he told them.
Let us tell you that North Korea has passed a new law in which the nation has been declared as a Nuclear Weapon State. The country's leader Kim Jong Un says it is "irreversible". North Korean state media reported on Friday that Kim vowed the country would "never give up" its nuclear weapons and said there could be no talks on denuclearization.
The new law is different from North Korea's previous stand
The new law also gives the right to carry out nuclear strikes to protect the country from any potential threat. This differs from North Korea's previous stance that it said it would keep its weapons only until other countries became denuclearized and would not use these weapons against non-nuclear states. The new law also prohibits the sharing of nuclear technology with other countries.
'Nuclear weapons represent the dignity of the state'
Kim welcomed the decision by the country's rubber-stamp parliament - the Supreme People's Assembly - to unanimously pass the new law, saying "nuclear weapons represent "the dignity of the state, and absolute power".
Kim said, "The adoption of laws and regulations related to the national nuclear force policy is a remarkable event because we have legally achieved war resistance as a means of national defence.
The North Korean leader said, "As long as there are nuclear weapons on Earth, imperialism and anti-North Korean maneuvers by the US and its followers, our efforts to strengthen our nuclear power will not end."
