North Korea passed a new law allowing pre-emptive nuclear strikes as leader Kim Jong Un declared he would never abandon nuclear weapons in order to counter the U.S.

Mr. Kim delivered a speech Thursday to North Korea’s rubber-stamp parliament, where members passed legislation outlining the country’s nuclear status. The law included a provision requiring North Korea’s military to launch nuclear strikes if the leadership comes under attack.
