North Korea has finalized its preparations for war as it responded with a warning of “catastrophic consequences” to any further provocations by the United States.
The supreme leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un announced that the country is prepared to complete its nuclear program. He has warned that his country is nearing its goal of “equilibrium” in military force with the United States.

According to the Korean news agency, Kim suggested more “meaningful and practical” missile tests are on the way to prepare for “actual war.”
“If North Korea provokes us or our allies, we have the strength to smash the attempt at an early stage and inflict a level of damage it would be impossible to recover from,” said South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who ordered his military to conduct a live-fire ballistic missile drill in response to the North Korean launch.
