NHK NEWSLINE, 23 Feb, 2018-- North Korea's ruling party newspaper says the country's military is pushing forward with its deployment of nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles.

The Rodong Sinmun made the comment in an editorial on Friday.

The article says the country possesses intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles, and hydrogen bombs. It insists that it has made all preparations for a possible nuclear attack on the United States.

The editorial also says that wishing for the denuclearization of North Korea is more foolish than waiting for the ocean to dry up.

North Korea has been fostering a reconciliatory mood with South Korea during the ongoing PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

But the North staged a military parade on February 8th, the eve of the Games' opening ceremony, displaying the new ICBM-class missile known as the Hwasong-15.
