SEOUL (Reuters) – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un called for scaling up the production of weapons-grade nuclear materials to increase the country’s nuclear arsenal, saying it should be fully ready to use the weapons at any time, state media KCNA said on Tuesday. .
Kim made the remarks during an inspection of the country’s nuclear weapons program where it tested trigger technology, KCNA said.
The military simulated a nuclear air explosion strike with two ground-to-ground tactical ballistic missiles during Monday’s firing training, KCNA said in a separate dispatch.
A defense think tank also tested underwater strategic weapons systems, KCNA said.
