Kim Jong-Un tells Trump he will detonate a nuke ‘whenever he sees fit’ as China warns anyone provoking North Korea will ‘pay the price’.
The world is on the brink of thermo-nuclear war, North Korea has warned after ‘aggressive tweets’ by President Donald Trump (pictured, top right), and US military drills in the Korean peninsula (bottom right). The secretive state’s vice foreign minister Han Song Ryol (inset) accused the US President of ‘making trouble’ in his social media posts as tensions rise over the possibility of another North Korean nuclear weapons test. This week despot Kim Jong-un was pictured (centre) watching North Korean special operation forces carrying out drills, and Han accused the US of building up a ‘vicious cycle’ of tensions and warned the US against provoking the country militarily. He said: ‘We will go to war if they choose’. A statement from the North Korean Foreign Ministry’s Institute for Disarmament and Peace said in a statement that following the deployment of an American aircraft carrier last weekend, the US had ‘created a dangerous situation in which a thermo-nuclear war may break out any moment on the peninsula and posed serious threat to the world peace and security, to say nothing of those in Northeast Asia.’
