KIM Jong-Un ended a landmark meeting of Congress by issuing a stark warning to President-elect Joe Biden – after boasting about his mass military expansion.
The dictator closed the meeting of the Eighth Party Congress after eight days of policy discussion, asserting his plans for maximum military power and greater nuclear war deterrence.
Regarded as one of the biggest political events of the country, the Workers Party Congress was the second longest congress in history.
The Supreme Leader was keen to take the opportunity to intimidate Joe Biden just a week before his official inauguration, as Kim unveiled grand plans to develop an advanced new nuclear weapons arsenal.
“By accelerating the push to make our military more elite and strong, we need to have them thoroughly prepared to play their role against any form of threats or unexpected situations,” he said.
At the meeting, Kim Jong-un pledged to begin major expansion of their nuclear capabilities, rigorous research into military technology and the production of a military reconnaissance satellite.
The North Korean leader then branded the US, “the fundamental obstacle to the development of our revolution and our foremost principal enemy”.
‘The real intention of its policy toward the DPRK will never change, whoever comes into power,” he continued, a clear swipe at Biden taking office, without mentioning him by name.
It comes as tensions between the two countries continue to remain highly volatile, with Kim consistently dubbing the US his country’s “arch-enemy”.
Just days ago he unveiled plans for his new weaponry, while telling the Eighth Congress: “The efforts will focus on overpowering and bringing them to their knees”.
He and Donald Trump had a stormy relationship during his presidency – they slung insults at each other, sparked fears of World War III, and boasted about their nuclear abilities.
