WW3: North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un Announces He Has Nuclear Button On His Desk
World war three fears as North Korea's nuclear programme gets underway
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's nuclear programme is not fictional but a 'reality' revealing he has the nuclear button on his desk.
The hermit kingdom leader spoke to North Korea's state television on New Year's day stating that his nuclear arsenal is beyond being a "threat" but is now a "reality."
Kim Jong-un also hinted that he was in "open to dialogue" with Seoul in order to diminish tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
"The entire mainland of the US is within the range of our nuclear weapons and the nuclear button is always on the desk of my office. They should accurately be aware that this is not a threat but a reality," said Kim.

His statement comes following the worryingly rapid advancement of North Korea's nuclear weapons programme throughout 2017 which saw the country launch more than a dozen missiles and one nuclear test.
In the statement, Kim said: "As for the areas of nuclear weapons research and rocket engineering, we need to accelerate the mass production of nuclear warheads, whose power and reliability have already been secured, and ballistic missiles."
The North Korean leader, dressed in a grey suit, assured the country that they would be able "to retaliate against the enemy's move for a nuclear war."
Addressing the recent tensions in the region: "When it comes to North-South relations, we should lower the military tensions on the Korean Peninsula to create a peaceful environment. Both the North and the South should make efforts."
Earlier this year, world war three tensions escalated when President Donald Trump gave his maiden speech at the UN general assembly emphasizing that the US may have no other choice than to destroy North Korea.
Trump referred to Kim Jong-un ‘Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for him and his regime’.
Recently, North Korea conducted a launch of biological weapons experiments including anthrax-laden missiles on its intercontinental ballistic warheads according to reports.
