SEOUL, March 4 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Friday ordered the country's nuclear weapons to be made ready for use at a moment's notice.

He also said the communist country will revise its military posture so it can be ready to carry out pre-emptive attacks, stressing that the current situation has become very precarious, according to the Korean Central News Agency.

The announcement comes more than a day after the United Nations Security Council passed a new sanctions resolution penalizing the country for its fourth nuclear test and long-range missile launch earlier in the year.
