The supreme leader of North Korea a.k.a. Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un has seamlessly taken his animosity with the U.S. to 2018.

In his new-year address, he did not mince his words to issue a fresh warning to President Donald Trump who has been making provocative remarks against North Korea.

“The United States can never fight a war against me and our state. It should properly know that the whole territory of the U.S. is within the range of our nuclear strike and a nuclear button is always on the desk of my office and this is just a reality, not a threat,” Kim Jong Un said in his address.

He added that the test of a super-powerful thermo-nuclear weapon was conducted together with the tests of various types of nukes delivery means.

He declared that the DPRK, as a peace-loving and responsible nuclear power, would not use nuclear weapons unless the hostile aggression forces encroach upon the sovereignty and interests of our state, and nor pose any nuclear threat to any country or region.

“But we will react resolutely to any acts of harassing peace and security on the Korean peninsula,” he stressed.

Kim Jong Un also said in his address that the Workers’ Party of Korea and the DPRK government will develop good neighborly and friendly relations with all countries which respect the sovereignty of our country and are friendly toward it.
