Kim Jong Un warns enemies of 'Nuclear Button'

Kim Jong Un warns enemies of 'Nuclear Button'

After reiterating that his country had "completed" its nuclear deterrent against the United States - a fact that its state media proclaimed following the successful flight-test of the Hwasong-15 intercontinental-range ballistic missile on November 29 - Kim added that he had a "nuclear button" physically installed on his desk in his office.

Kim's hostile comments were offset by a diplomatic message.

Kim also indicated an interest in sending a delegation to participate in the Winter Olympics, which its southern neighbor is scheduled to host in February, according to the report.

On Sunday, South Korea said it would impose new unilateral sanctions on 20 institutions and a dozen individuals in North Korea, barring any financial transactions between those sanctioned and any South Koreans.

He continued that theme in his New Year's address, announcing that North Korea would focus in 2018 on "mass-producing nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles for operational deployment".

Kim also reportedly highlighted the isolated state's economic achievements during the speech, and nodded towards trying to improve the country's standard of living. "The United States can never start a war against me and our country". That year, the Supreme People's Assembly promulgated an ordinance on North Korea's position as a "nuclear weapons state". However, he also steadfastly declared North Korea a nuclear power.

Android Oreo rolling out to the LG V30…in Korea
As per the report , the handset went from zero to 100 percent in 92 minutes compared to over two hours of charge time. The Oreo update is likely to make the mid-range smartphone an even more attractive buy for users in the market.

The North will only use nuclear weapons if its security is threatened, he added.

In an interview on ABC's "This Week", Mullen warned that President Donald Trump's provocative rhetoric aimed at Kim Jong Un likely indicates he would prefer to take a more aggressive approach to countering the rogue regime's rapidly evolving nuclear weapons program.

"But an olive branch is always wrapped in some sort of belligerent coating in North Korea, it doesn't mean the end of the nuclear program ..."

'The Winter Olympic games that will be held soon in the South will be a good opportunity to display the status of the Korean nation and we sincerely wish that the event will be held with good results, ' he said.

The war games included attacks against a mock North Korean missile launch site with mock North Korean radars. He said he has a "nuclear button" on his office desk. "The games make it possible for Washington and Seoul to meet Pyongyang's demand for self-restraint - adjusting their military exercises - without losing face and appearing weak on Pyongyang".
