North Korea Warns Thermonuclear War May Break Out At Any Minute
A senior North Korean official said Monday the U.S. has created “a dangerous situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any minute.”
Kim In Ryong, North Korea’s deputy United Nations ambassador, added that the Korean Peninsula is “the world’s biggest hot spot” due to American intrusions there.
“[North Korea] is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the U.S.,” he said Monday in Panmunjom, North Korea, according to The Associated Press.
Kim additionally derided the U.S.-South Korean military exercises being conducted as the “largest-ever aggressive war drill.”
Vice President Pence on Sunday vowed that “the era of strategic patience is over” between the U.S. and North Korea.
