North Korea Promises to Raze US Bases in South Korea Within a Few Minutes
North Korea promised to take countermeasures if the Trump administration chose reckless options including a preemptive strike on the regime.
North Korea is planning another nuclear test on Saturday.
The Korea Times reported:
North Korea’s vice foreign minister said Friday that his country was ready for another nuclear test and would take military countermeasures if the Donald Trump administration chose “reckless” options such as a pre-emptive strike.
Vice Minister Han Song-ryol told the Associated Press in Pyongyang that it was not North Korea but the U.S. and President Trump that were “making trouble,” warning, “We will go to war if they choose.”
Han was quoted as saying, “If the U.S. comes up with reckless military maneuvers, then we will confront it with the DPRK’s pre-emptive strike.
“We’ve got a powerful nuclear deterrent already in our hands, and we certainly will not keep our arms crossed in the face of a U.S. pre-emptive strike.”
The North Korean military also promised to raze US army bases in South Korea.
