NORTH KOREA: North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un intends to be projected as the most daunting nuclear kingpin, as the omnipotent figure was again photographed with his daughter on an inspection of military troops and an intercontinental ballistic missile.

At the inspection tour promoting dozens of officers involved in the military launch last weekend, the North Korean leader said North Korea’s “ultimate goal is to possess the world’s most powerful strategic force, the absolute force unprecedented in the century,” state-run media reported on Sunday.

The intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) under inspection, Hwasong-17, was described as the “world’s strongest strategic weapon,” demonstrating North Korea’s potential to become the most ruthless nuclear power in the world to protect and uphold the security of its nation, said Kim.

State media broadcast videos and images of the inspection rounds by Kim with his young daughter, who had never been publicly taped before last weekend’s Hwasong-17 test.

Named Ju Ae, Kim’s daughter is estimated to be 12 to 13 years old, which means she will be eligible to attend university in four to five years, said Michael Madden, a NK leadership expert at the Stimson Centre in Washington.

Ju Ae’s recent appearance at a crucial military inspection with her father, the Supreme Leader, is an indication that the next generation of Kim’s are being trained to take control of the leadership of the totalitarian state.

Kim is believed to have two to three children, with one of the children seen in old footage of National Day celebrations in September.

In Sunday’s report, Kim was also seen lauding the nation’s scientists, who had made a “wonderful leap forward in the development of the technology of mounting nuclear warheads on ballistic missiles” and were determined to toil harder than before to make North Korea’s mark on the history of the biggest nuclear arsenals in the world.

Kim was pictured in photos posing with scientists, engineers, and military officials involved in the test.

Meanwhile, the Hwasong-17 has proved to be a threatening force capable of entering the US mainland, prompting the United Nations Security Council to slam North Korea’s missile tests and ban them in subsequent resolutions.

“[The missile] clearly proved before the world that the DPRK is a full-fledged nuclear power capable of standing against the nuclear supremacy of the US imperialists and fully demonstrated its might as the most powerful ICBM state,” according to sources.
