An African proverb says ‘only the stubborn fly follows the corpse to the grave’, but it seems this proverb hasn’t gotten to the ears of the North Korean government as North Korea’s representative at the United Nations, Kim In Ryong, unleashed torrents of threats towards the United States, claiming it was only a matter of time before a nuclear war occurred between both countries.
At the press event organized by the U.N in New York on Monday, Kim claimed the U.S keeps using gangster-like logic and disturbing global peace and security.
Reading his statement, hours after US Vice President Mike Pence visited South Korea and warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the United States, Kim said;
“It has created a dangerous situation in which thermonuclear war may break out at any moment on the peninsula and poses a serious threat to world peace and security.”
“The US is disturbing the global peace and stability and insisting on the gangster-like logic that its invasion of a sovereign state is decisive, and just, and proportionate and contributes to defending the international order in its bid to apply it to the Korean Peninsula as well.”
‘My country is ready to react to any mode of war from the United States. Any missile or nuclear strike by the United States would be responded to in kind. Their maneuvers show the US reckless moves for invading the DPRK (North Korea) have reached a serious phase.”
‘We would hold the United States accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions.”
The U.S last week stationed it’s Navy strike team, the U.S Carl Vinson at the Korean peninsula and Donald Trump urged North Korea to ‘behave better’ and that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was ‘making a big mistake’
