• NKorean leader says will only use nuclear weapons if attacked


    PYONGYANG: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un told a rare ruling party congress on Saturday that North Korea was a “responsible” nuclear weapons state, with a no first-use policy and a commitment to non-proliferation. Speaking to thousands of delegates gathered for the first Workers’ Party congress in more than 35 years, Kim also announced a new five-year plan to boost the impoverished country’s moribund economy and “revitalize” people’s lifestyles. His remarks, published by state media on Sunday, came amid growing concerns that the North might be on the verge of conducting a fifth nuclear test.
