(ANSA) – BEIJING, APRIL 05 – North Korea will use its nuclear weapons to “eliminate” the South Korean army in the event of a preemptive attack by Seoul: this is the warning of Kim Yo-jong, the powerful sister by leader Kim Jong-un, released by state media, the second launched in three days against comments last week by Southern Defense Chief Suh Wook on the military capabilities of his armed forces.

The stance of the leader’s sister, increasingly central to Pyongyang’s power structures, matured when North Korea resumed tests on weapons that violate international sanctions and UN resolutions, with the first ICBM launched from 2017.

Suh said on Friday that the South Korean military had missiles with “the ability to accurately and quickly hit any target in North Korea if there are obvious signs of missile launches.”

In response, Kim Yo Jong reiterated that it was a “very serious mistake” for the “madman” Suh; to have discussed a preemptive strike against a nuclear power, the official KCNA agency reported. “In the event that South Korea opts for a military confrontation with us, our nuclear fighting force will inevitably have to perform its duty,” said Kim Yo-jong, adding that the “main mission” of his nuclear potential. Country was to act as a deterrent, but should an armed conflict break out, such weapons will be used to “eliminate the attacking enemy armed forces.”

North Korea will celebrate the 110th anniversary of the birth of founder Kim Il-sung, the grandfather of the current leader Kim on April 15: the birthday of the ‘eternal president’ is one of those events that Pyongyang usually celebrates with impressive military parades, major weapon tests or satellite launches.
