He also said there will be no denuclearization negotiations.

The new law also highlights the country's right to conduct preemptive nuclear strikes as a means of protection.

Kim went on to say that nuclear weapons convey the "dignity, body and absolute power of the state.".

The adoption of laws and regulations related to the national nuclear force policy is a remarkable event as it's our declaration that we legally acquired war deterrence as a means of national defense, Kim Jong-un, via statement.

As long as nuclear weapons exist on Earth, and imperialism and the anti-North Korean maneuvers of the US and its followers remain, our road to strengthening our nuclear force will never end, Kim Jong-un, via statement.

CNN reports that Kim's nuclear threats toward America and its Asian allies have increased in recent months.

Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul, said the new legislation illustrates North Korea's desire to strengthen ties with China and Russia.

North Korea mentioning the possibility of using nuclear weapons if and when an attack on the state and leader is imminent is significant, even though it states nuclear weapons as a defensive last resort.
