The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Exclusive -

NORTH KOREAN leader Kim Jong-un has promised 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. The lat­est mis­sile has been de­scribed as the coun­try’s farthest-reach­ing test.

The move split world pow­ers who united be­hind new UN sanc­tions against North Korea just days ago.

Mr Kim said: “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.”
