North Korea: Don’t Criticize Us

North Korea issued a warning to the world not to criticize its nuclear program ahead of the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, saying that it will consider such criticism to be a “declaration of war.” Meanwhile, President Obama plans to offer kinder words while speaking in South Korea on Monday. Sources say he will discuss how the Unites States can continue to reduce its nuclear stockpile while maintaining enough to use as a strategic deterrent. “He will reaffirm his commitment to reduce America’s nuclear weapons and the role they play in our national security strategy,” an official said.
