“We will never give up nuclear weapons and there is absolutely no denuclearization, no negotiations and no negotiation tokens in the process,” the leader said. Kim Jong Un during a speech at the meeting of the legislative body, according to KCNA.

Kim accused the United States of trying to overthrow the North Korean regime by putting sanctions on it to halt its development and nuclear weapons, and described this approach by Washington as “an error of judgment and calculation” that could even be “in hundreds years” will have no effect.

Pyongyang’s nuclear policy reform is “a legal requirement of the current situation” that will serve as a guarantee to strengthen its position as a nuclear state of the north, Kim said, adding that this drift “is vital to draw a line for that we can no longer negotiate our nuclear policy.

North Korean leader said it would be necessary to change its nuclear policy first a change in the political and military situation of the Korean Peninsula and worldwide.

North Korea has kept its borders closed since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in early 2020 and has refused dialogue deals raised by Seoul and Washington since then.

Last year, the North Korean regime approved a five-year weapons modernization plan, for which some 20 projectiles have been launched this year and which appear to be the basis for preparations for a new nuclear test detected by satellite images during this year.

If it happened, it would be Pyongyang’s first nuclear test in five years and which, according to South Korean and American intelligence, has been ready to be executed for months.
