Kim Jong Un will put North Korea on a path to develop more advanced nuclear technologies and missiles, sending a chilling warning to President-elect Joe Biden that the Asian leader is ready to ratchet up security tensions.

Kim called the U.S. a “war monster” and his “biggest main enemy,” at the first Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea in five years, according to the state’s Korean Central News Agency on Saturday. He said he would focus on “subduing” the U.S. and continue to enhance nuclear capability to ensure North Korea’s “autonomic development.”
