SEOUL, Dec. 31 (UPI) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced that there was no longer any reason to be “unilaterally bound” to its commitment to halt nuclear and inter-continental ballistic missile tests and warned of a “new strategic weapon” coming soon, state-run media reported Wednesday.

In his remarks, delivered Tuesday at the end of a three-day meeting of the Central Committee of the ruling Workers’ Party, Kim said that despite two years of “preemptive and crucial measures” of shutting down its nuclear and ICBM tests, the United States has failed to respond in kind.
