North Korea to Increase Nuclear War Deterrence

North Korea to Increase Nuclear War Deterrence 25 May, 2020

New steps are coming from North Korea and the United States in the race for nuclear armaments. During the Central Military Commission talks, North Korea focused on new strategies for the construction and development of its armed forces.

The commission, chaired by Kim Jong Un, discussed new policies to increase nuclear war deterrence, KCNA news agency reported. Discussions at the Central Military Commission meeting also centred on "putting the strategic armed forces on a high alert operation" in line with the "building and development of the armed forces of the country".

News of North Korea's nuclear discussions came after a report Friday in The Washington Post that US President Donald Trump's administration had discussed holding the first US nuclear test since 1992 as a potential warning to Russia and China.
