Pyongyang is creating strategic atomic weapons that can target South Korea, and refining its long-range weapons that can arrive at the US central area.
The US as of now has a settlement commitment to shield South Korea, and has recently swore to utilize atomic weapons if vital. Yet, some in South Korea have begun to uncertainty that responsibility and require the country to seek after its own atomic program.

Under the new arrangement, the US will make its safeguard responsibilities more noticeable by sending an atomic equipped submarine to South Korea without precedent for 40 years, alongside other vital resources, including atomic skilled planes.
