Call for ‘nu­clear de­ter­rent’ boost

Los Angeles Times - - The World -

NORTH KOREA

North Korea should strengthen its “nu­clear de­ter­rent” in re­sponse to the threat posed by the United States, Vice For­eign Min­is­ter Pak Kil Yon said.

“As long as the U.S. nu­clear air­craft car­ri­ers sail around the seas of our coun­try, our nu­clear de­ter­rent can never be aban­doned, but should be strength­ened fur­ther,” the North Korean of­fi­cial told the U.N. Gen­eral Assem­bly. “The United States is not a de­fender, but a dis­rup­tor, of peace.”
