SEOUL - North Korea said it would further strengthen self-defensive nuclear weapons capability "in quality and quantity" in a decision adopted at a rare Workers' Party congress, its KCNA news agency reported on Monday.

The decision was adopted after a review of the work of the party's Central Committee on day three of the congress on Sunday, KCNA said.
