North Korea has threatened the US with a “horrible nuclear strike and miserable and final ruin” arguing that it’s ready to conduct a pre-emptive strike if it see “any slight sign of provocation.”
“The U.S. cooked up another “sanctions resolution” at the United Nations Security Council as part of its unprecedented military threat and sanctions and blockade to stifle the DPRK [North Korea]. The U.S. describes the DPRK’s nuclear deterrence for self-defense as the “biggest threat to peace”, but it is no more than a shameful logic and a brigandish deed to justify its crimes against peace on the Korean Peninsula,” the state-run media outlet Korean Central News Agency reported. “The DPRK, which towered as the most powerful nuclear weapons state despite the unprecedented difficulties and trials, is not afraid of sanctions, pressure and war.“
On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump threatened North Korea with total destruction if it attacks the US or its allies.
“We will have no choice than to totally destroy North Korea,” Trump said calling Kim Jong Un a “rocket man” that “is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime.”
On Monday, the South Korean Defense Ministry announced that the country asked the US to send the USS Ronald Reagan carrier strike group to join the exercises scheduled for October. The ministry also said that it’s planning a joint missile defense exercise with the US and Japan later in September or in October.
Earlier in September, the United Nations Security Council imposed a new round of sanctions against North Korea, banning Pyongyang’s textile exports and capping its oil imports.
