Kim Says North Korea's Efforts Will Focus On Bringing America 'To Its Knees'

 North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said the nation's activities should focus on bringing its "arch enemy," the United States, "to its knees."

The country's state media (KCNA) reported on Saturday that Kim made the remarks while addressing the 8th Congress of the Korean Workers' Party, according to NBC News. The leader reportedly spoke for nine hours.

"Our foreign political activities must focus on our arch enemy and the fundamental obstacle to our revolutionary development, the United States," Kim said, according to NBC. "The effort will focus on mastering them and bringing them to their knees," he added.

Kim also threatened to expand the country's nuclear arsenal.

Kim noted that regardless of who is in the White House, "the true nature of the United States and its fundamental policies toward North Korea never change."

Kim reportedly listed several weapons systems under development, The Associated Press reported, citing KNCA, such as multiple warhead missiles, underwater-launched nuclear missiles and solid-fuel long-range missiles. However, it is unclear how extensive North Korea's weapons systems are.

The comments come as President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on January 20. Biden has vowed to take a firm stand against Kim.

During the presidential debate in October, Biden criticized President Trump for calling a "bully" like Kim his "good friend." Biden said at the time that he would meet with Kim if he "agreed that it would reduce his nuclear capabilities."

Trump has in the past touted his friendship with the dictator and the two have held several meetings. However, the relationship between Trump and the North Korean leader has recently cooled off.
