North Korea says that US air strikes on Syria show the necessity for developing nuclear weapons

North Korea says US air strikes on Syria vindicates decision to develop nuclear weapons, ABC News 9 Apr 17  North Korea has said US missile strikes against a Syrian airfield were “an unforgivable act of aggression” that showed its decision to develop nuclear weapons was “the right choice a million times over”.

Key points:

  • North Korea says US strikes vindicates decision to strengthen its military power
  • Kim Jong-un has exchanged pledges of friendship and cooperation with Bashar al-Assad
  • Mr Trump earlier spoke of an “outstanding” relationship with North Korea’s ally China

The response by North Korea’s foreign ministry, carried by the official KCNA news agency, was the first since US warships launched dozens of missiles at a Syrian air base which the Pentagon says was involved in a chemical weapons attack earlier in the week.

“The US missile attack against Syria is a clear and unforgivable act of aggression against a sovereign state and we strongly condemn this,” KCNA quoted an unnamed spokesman for the North Korean foreign ministry as saying……….http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-04-09/north-korea-calls-us-syria-air-strikes-unforgivable/8428398
