North Korea makes nuclear policy ‘irreversible’ with new law

North Korea has passed a law allowing it to carry out a preventive nuclear strike and declaring its status as a nuclear-armed state “irreversible”, according to state media.

The announcement comes amid stalled talks on denuclearisation and concern Pyongyang may soon resume nuclear testing for the first time since 2017, following the failure of a series of high-level summits with then-United States President Donald Trump over sanctions relief.

The law also bans any sharing of nuclear arms or technology with other countries, KCNA reported.

  1. The authorities of North Korea have adopted a new law, reserving the right to carry out a preventive nuclear strike if the government sees an inevitable threat for the state or its leader Kim Jong-un, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said on Friday.

    The law specifying the government’s policy on nuclear forces also stipulates an automatic counter-strike on an adversary if it attacked the country or staged an attempt on the life of its leader. Moreover, North Korea reserved the right to retaliate with nuclear weapons even if the attack on its territory involved only conventional warfare.
