North Korea’s deputy UN ambassador has warned the UN General Assembly that the crisis on the Korean Peninsula “has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment.”
Kim In-ryong said North Korea is the only country in the world subjected to “such an extreme and direct nuclear threat” by the US, AP reports.
He accused Washington of hatching a “secret operation aimed at the removal of our supreme leadership” and defended his country’s nuclear arsenal, at the heart of the crisis, as being for self-defense.
Speaking to the UN General Assembly’s disarmament committee, he insisted that nukes are Pyongyang’s “precious strategic asset that cannot be reversed or bartered for anything,” a line that other North Korean officials have voiced almost word-for-word before.
North Korea has been enhanced both its technical capabilities and its anti-American rhetoric and is not going to have any iota of negotiations with US.
KNCA website, The Trump administration of the U.S. is reported to mull introducing smaller tactical nuclear weapons in a bid to destroy the nuclear facilities of the DPRK.
What matters is that such scheme is under consideration when the U.S. is going to stage a high-intensity joint drill in the East Sea of Korea with mobilization of a strike group involving nuclear carrier Ronald Reagan, Aegis destroyer, missile cruiser and Ohio-class strategic nuclear submarine carrying nuclear missiles.
This sheds light on the sinister scenario to provoke a nuclear war by all means so as to totally destroy the DPRK and exterminate the population of the north.
Now, the Korean Peninsula is on the threshold of a nuclear disaster and no one knows at what time a thermonuclear war will break out.
The Trump group should think twice about what terrible consequences the U.S. will face due to its scheme for a nuclear attack on the DPRK.
The status of force between the DPRK and U.S. at present is fundamentally different from what was in the past Korean War in the 1950s.
The U.S. reckless military gambling against the DPRK may lead to its total destruction.As the U.S. denies even the existence of the DPRK and tries to topple it by force, the latter’s counteractions will be inevitable.
The DPRK is ready to counter the war of aggression with a war of justice and cope with the enemy’s dagger with a sword and his rifle with an artillery piece. It is the invariable stand of the Korean army and people and their permanent mode of counteraction.
Despite intensifying gestures and remarks between the US, North Korea and the countries’ leaders, US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan told reporters on Tuesday, “We eventually don’t rule out the possibility of direct talks,” media reported. Sullivan had just wrapped up a meeting in Tokyo with Japanese Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs Shinsuke Sugiyama.
US diplomat will travel next to Seoul where he will also visit the demilitarized zone, or DMZ, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap.
US President Donald Trump’s first trip to South Korea is scheduled for next month, when he will meet with President Moon Jae-in. Diplomatic channels an imperative to get the countries to resorts to deliberations, talks, to avoid any nuke blasts exchange in any manner.
