The Korean People’s Army statement issued through KCNA on Thursday threatening nuclear weapons use in retaliation for any U.S. attack was repeated on the Voice of Korea shortwave radio program of the DPRK the same day, but it didn’t rank anywhere near the top news of the day.

Leading off the English-language newscast was details of the plenary meeting of the central committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea. The news then progressed to a number of new laws passed by the Supreme People’s Assembly. Item five on the nuclear weapons law might be of interest to some.

The army statement came eleventh in the news cast.

I don’t normally put all these news reports on the site, but as reception was so good today and everyone is focused on the DPRK, I thought it might be useful or interesting for people to hear all of the news reported.

Here’s a look at what the country decided to send to the world through Voice of Korea’s broadcast for April 4, 2013. If you want to try and catch these broadcasts yourself, you’ll need a shortwave radio, the schedule published earlier this week, and the luck of good radio propagation from the DPRK to your house.
