North Korea's National Defense Council, Choi Ryong-hye, has confirmed that a platoon will respond to any possible nuclear war by the United States with a nuclear strike.
"If America starts provocations, we will immediately respond with a devastating attack to a comprehensive war with a nuclear strike," Kyodo news agency quoted Hay as saying.
North Korea offered its ballistic missile launch for the first time on Saturday before a massive military parade in Pyongyang.
North Korea alerted the United States on Saturday to stop what it called a military hysteria or face retaliation as a US aircraft carrier battle group headed toward the region amid fears that Pyongyang could test a sixth nuclear weapon.
According to international news agencies, hundreds of military trucks carrying people chanting and singing went to a parade to mark the 110th anniversary of the founding father of North Korea, celebrations coinciding with the latest threat by Pyongyang to the United States and President Donald Trump.
