North Korea will face ‘destruction’ if it tries to nuke South, Seoul warns

Yoon administration says US and ROK will strengthen deterrence in first comments on new DPRK nuclear law

North Korea will face “self-destruction” if it ever tries to attack the South with nuclear weapons, Seoul’s defense ministry warned Tuesday, responding to Pyongyang’s recent adoption of a new nuclear law.

In a major speech last week, DPRK leader Kim Jong Un praised a new nuclear doctrine that outlines a broad range of scenarios in which the country might use weapons of mass destruction.
