“North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said he was prepared to use his country’s nuclear arsenal in a military clash with the United States and threatened to ‘annihilate’ South Korea, state media reported on Thursday. Kim made the remarks at an event Wednesday in Pyongyang commemorating the 69th anniversary of the armistice that ended fighting in the 1950-1953 Korean War, state-run Korean Central News Agency reported. … Pyongyang has conducted at least 18 rounds of missile launches this year and appears poised to conduct its seventh nuclear test at any time, according to officials in Washington and Seoul.” (07/28/22)
