Kim Jong-Un: prepare for dialogue, confrontation with US
In his first direct comment on the Biden administration, the Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un, calls on his country to prepare for either confrontation or dialogue with the United States.
The North Korean Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-Un, said that Pyongyang is ready for confrontations or dialogue with the United States.
Kim Jong-Un made his comment during a session of the Central Committee of the ruling Workers' Party, "we need especially to get fully prepared for confrontation in order to protect the dignity of our state and its interests for independent development."
North Korean state media said that the Korean supreme leader made a detailed analysis of the policy tendency of the newly emerged US administration toward the Republic and clarified appropriate strategic and tactical counteraction and the direction of activities to be maintained in the relations with the US in the days ahead.
Washington had confirmed its intention to continue to pressure North Korea in order to achieve the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
A few days ago, Jong Un called for mobilization and declared a state of alert to face the rapid changes on the Korean Peninsula.
While presiding over the Central Military Commission meeting, the North Korean leader called for strengthening the country's military strength.
According to the North's official Korean Central News Agency, the KCNA, Kim Jong-Un called for a state of high alert against the recently rapidly changing situation on the Korean Peninsula.
This is scheduled for the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea to hold its meeting later this month.
The Guardian indicated last week that the North Korean leader "has prompted more speculation about his health after recent photographs suggested he had lost weight."
"Kim, whose heavy frame has drawn global interest since he became the country’s leader almost a decade ago, looked noticeably trimmer in images released by state media on Saturday, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency," said The Guardian.
