North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has called for stepped-up efforts to prepare for war, saying the United States is engaged in "unprecedented" acts of confrontation against the country, state media reported Thursday.

In the second-day session of the plenary meeting of the ruling Workers' Party on Wednesday, Kim also presented a goal of strengthening strategic cooperation with "anti-imperialist" countries, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
He said the security situation on the Korean Peninsula has become extremely dangerous due to what he claims are "unprecedented" US-led confrontational moves against North Korea.

Kim also vowed to "expand and develop the relations of strategic cooperation with the anti-imperialist independent countries and dynamically wage the anti-imperialist joint action and struggle on an international scale," the KCNA said. (QNA)
