After the deadly ballistic missile attack over northern Japan, North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un has opened up about his country's nuclear weaponry. Kim's released statement reportedly shows that the supreme leader is not going to back down, and if under Donald Trump's presidency the United States of America decides to use its military powers, then Kim is prepared to use his major weaponry. Apart from successful missile tests, there are reports that North Korea has advanced their cyber operations and many are considering it deadlier than any nuclear missile attack.
On Thursday (22:00 GMT) an unidentified ballistic missile was launched from Pyongyang's district city. After the successful ballistic missile test, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un described the test as a way to keep their military forces in equilibrium with the United States.
Kim, who earlier mocked the United States and Donald Trump on America's Independence Day by firing ballistic missile, added that North Korea would like to show the "big power chauvinists" that even without proper resources and technological bits of help from other developed countries, their country has finally achieved the goal of securing the borders against any foreign invasion.
"We should clearly show the big power chauvinists how our state attains the goal of completing its nuclear force despite their limitless sanctions and blockade," Kim was quoted as saying by the KCNA via BBC.
After the reports of the attack surfaced, President Donald Trump's national security adviser H. R. McMaster said there is a military option for handling the situation arising from Pyongyang. The White House national security adviser added that the current administration wants new sanctions against the Korean Peninsula because "we're out of time."
"We've been kicking the can down the road, and we're out of road," he said. "So for those who have said and commenting about the lack of a military option, there is a military option."
