BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:25 P.M.) – North Korea said on Saturday that the U.S. missile strikes against a Syrian airfield on Friday were “an unforgivable act of aggression” that showed its decision to develop nuclear weapons was “the right choice a million times over.”
North Korea continually states that its nuclear weapon aspirations is for deterrent reasons against US aggression, as Syria has experienced.
The United States launched missile attacks against the Shayrat Airbase in rural Homs after an alleged chemical weapons attack in Idlib countryside by supposedly the Syrian government. The United States has not put forward any evidence that the Syrian government perpetrated a chemical weapon attack.
Despite being mostly isolated, North Korea considers Syria one of its few allies.
