Kim Jong-un’s nation strongly condemned the “US imperialists” for launching two bombers in the Korean peninsula and deploying a navy destroyer to float through the East Sea of Korea over the last few weeks.
The North insisted those actions were provocative and displayed a show of aggression against their communist state.
Insisting they have not “overlooked” any of these provocations, in a statement, Pyongyang claimed “the danger of a nuclear war has reached the height on the Korean peninsula”.
The statement published via Kim’s mouthpiece Rodong Sinmun added: “At a time when the US imperialists’ nuclear strike means stage nuclear war drills one after another in south Korea to attack the DPRK, the US infiltrated the pirate ship flagged with the Stars and Stripes deep into the economic waters of the DPRK for undisguised espionage act. This can never be overlooked.
“Their dangerous military provocations that have been carried out in a multiple way in the waters of the DPRK side in the East Sea of Korea prove that the danger of a nuclear war has reached the height on the Korean peninsula.
“The army of the DPRK is whetting the sword of retaliation sharper than before with a firm hold on the nuclear sword of justice to cope with the US imperialists’ escalating aggression moves.”
