PYONGYANG, February 1. /TASS/. Kim Jong Un was in command of drills held by military formations of the Air Force and the Navy from the Korean People’s Army, local papers reported on Sunday. The North Korean leader noted that the country "is ready to fight any war, including a nuclear one."
War games focused on drills of a surprise strike by the Air Force and the Navy, including submarines, on an aircraft carrier of an imaginary enemy, if a warship appears on operational direction of the Korean People’s Army.
North Korean military forces "should stage intensive military exercises seeking to destroy an imaginary aircraft-carrying strike grouping of aggressive forces of American imperialists."
"To sink a U.S. aircraft carrier down to the sea bottom is quite probable," papers quoted Kim as saying.
The North Korean leader, who heads the country’s armed forces in the rank of marshal, was accompanied by a large group of military commanders at the drills.
The area of military exercises was not specified.
