North Korea Clings to Nukes After Syria Strikes

In response to the recent U.S. missile strikes against Syria, North Korea has expressed their trust in their nuclear weapons as a deterrent to U.S. action against them.

North Korean officials have dismissed the Syrian airstrikes, acknowledging that they are meant to be a warning to North Korea but instead stating, “We will bolster up in every way our capability for self-defense to cope with the U.S. evermore reckless moves for a war and defend ourselves with our own force.”
