KCNA: "The DPRK's nuclear weapons are targeted against the U.S. and if the U.S. shows even the slightest sign of provocation, the whole U.S. mainland will face resolute and merciless nuclear blow."

KCNA: "The DPRK's state nuclear force never targets the fellow countrymen as it is the strategic asset common to the nation for guaranteeing the peace and security on the Korean peninsula."
