North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has "guided" the country's nuclear weaponisation project, calling for expanding the production of weapons-grade nuclear materials for an exponential increase in its nuclear arsenal, Pyongyang's state media said Tuesday.
Kim also inspected what appeared to be tactical nuclear warheads Monday, with South Korea and the United States staging combined naval exercises, involving a US nuclear-powered aircraft carrier.
The North's leader called for "flawless" preparations for the use of nuclear weapons "anytime and anywhere," as he received a briefing by the Nuclear Weapons Institute on the country's nuclear force, South Korea's news agency (Yonhap) reported citing the official North Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
He stressed that the party's nuclear policy is thoroughly aimed at safeguarding the security of the country and peace and stability in the region.
