Newsline: North Korea’s UN ambassador warns thermonuclear war may break out anytime

US is destabilizing the situation on the Korean peninsula and a thermonuclear war may break out in the region at any moment, the North Korean ambassador to the UN, Kim In Ryong told reporters. He leveled sharp criticism at the US and South Korea for conducting the war games of unprecedented scope and scale and said they could entail dire consequences for peace in the region. “As everybody knows, the US perpetrates military attacks and threatens a sovereign state while claiming “peace by strength,” Ambassador Kim said. “The recent US massive missile attack on Syria tells you well of it.” “The US introduces into the Korean peninsula, the world’s biggest hotspot, huge nuclear strategic assets, seriously threatening peace and security of the peninsula and pushing the situation there to the brink of a war,” Kim said. “This has created a situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment on the peninsula and posed a serious threat to world peace and security, to say nothing of those in Northeast Asia,” he said. The ambassador stressed North Korea’s resolve to stay calm in the face of aggressive policies of the Donald Trump Administration.
