Kim Jong Un says he's ready for war in New Year's address
SEOUL, South Korea - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un says he's ready for war if provoked by "invasive" outsiders.
Kim delivered his annual New Year's speech today, saying "if invasive outsiders and provocateurs touch us even slightly, we will not be forgiving in the least and sternly answer with a merciless, holy war of justice."
But Kim also says the North would continue to "work patiently to achieve peace on the Korean Peninsula."
