North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has vowed to reach the coun­try’s nu­clear goals, ac­cord­ing to state me­dia. The aim was to es­tab­lish “equilib­rium” of mil­i­tary force with the US, the KCNA news agency quoted him as say­ing. Mr Kim’s com­ments come af­ter North Korea fired its lat­est mis­sile over Ja­pan – in what is be­ing de­scribed as the coun­try’s far­thestreach­ing test.

The move split world pow­ers who united be­hind new UN sanc­tions against North Korea just days ago. “We should clearly show the big power chau­vin­ists how our state at­tain the goal of com­plet­ing its nu­clear force de­spite their lim­it­less sanc­tions and block­ade,” Mr Kim was quoted as say­ing by the KCNA.

He also said North Korea’s goal was “to es­tab­lish the equilib­rium of real force with the US and make the US rulers dare not talk about mil­i­tary op­tion for the DPRK (North Korea)”.
