North Korea: Nuclear weapons a 'matter of life and death'

Possessing nuclear weapons is a "matter of life and death for North Korea", Choe Son-hui, director-general of the North American department of North Korea's foreign ministry, said on Friday during a visit to Moscow.

"This is a matter of life and death for us. The current situation deepens our understanding that we need nuclear weapons to repel a potential attack. We will respond to fire with fire," Choe stressed.
