  • North Korea vows to bolster its nuclear capability

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un: Getting set to surrender?

The most shocking test came in July, when North Korea tested its first intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of reaching the US.

In its report Saturday, KCNA said North Korea had taken steps for "bolstering the capabilities for self-defence and pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force" in the face of a continued "nuclear threat and blackmail and war drills" by the United States and its "vassal forces".

These launches, including a nuclear test - its sixth and largest - in September, led Trump to consider military options for dealing with North Korea.

"We define this "sanctions resolution" rigged up by the USA and its followers as a grave infringement upon the sovereignty of our republic, as an act of war violating peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula and the region, and categorically reject the 'resolution, '" the statement released by the state-controlled Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) read. It described North Korea as an "undeniable new strategic state and nuclear power".

Retired Adm. Mike Mullen on Sunday warned the U.S.is closer to a nuclear war with North Korea than ever before.

"Do not expect any change in its policy".

The United Nations Security Council voted unanimously earlier this month to impose new sanctions on North Korea aimed at strangling the country's already isolated economy. That has angered North Korea, whose foreign minister said in September the North had "every right" to take countermeasures, including shooting down the US warplanes, though many experts doubt it has the actual intent or ability to do so.
