North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un has directed the country’s military, munitions industry, and nuclear weapons sector to accelerate war preparations in response to what he perceives as aggressive actions by the U.S.

He also mentioned plans to expand cooperation with “anti-imperialist independent” countries.

Kim also outlined economic goals, focusing on key industrial sectors and stabilizing agricultural production.

According to KCNA, “He (Kim) set forth the militant tasks for the People’s Army and the munitions industry, nuclear weapons and civil defence sectors to further accelerate the war preparations.”

“I urge you to immediately and firmly crush the enemy’s will for a provocation on the spot,” Yoon told troops.

“He … clarified the important tasks for the new year to be dynamically pushed forward in the key industrial sectors,” he continued.

The country has faced food shortages, exacerbated by border closures during the COVID-19 pandemic, despite a slight increase in crop output in 2023.

The recent party plenum discussed key policy announcements, including the enshrinement of nuclear policy in the country’s constitution and the launch of a spy satellite and intercontinental ballistic missile.
