N. Korea declares itself nuclear power
North Korea has made an amendment to its constitution to declare itself a nuclear power. The news has been reported by the Tokyo-based pro-Pyongyang news agency Tyosen Tsuchin.
According to news agency analysts, the constitutional change has been prompted by North Korea’s striving for ensuring international recognition as a nuclear power.
The amendment was made during the North Korean parliamentary session in April. North Korea adopted its current constitution in December 1972.
Only one amendment has since been made to the constitution.
