Nuclear War May Break Out Any Moment: North Korea Threatens US Again

North Korean UN Deputy Ambassador Kim In-ryong said the situation on the Korean peninsula is very unsafe, and that nuclear war may break out at any moment, the World Agencies have said.

North Korea's delegation has stated that it considers nuclear weapons the only effective means of protecting the country's sovereignty, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matvienko told reporters on Monday after a meeting with Deputy Chairman of North Korea's Supreme People's Assembly Ahn Dong Chun on the sidelines of the Inter-Parliamentary Union assembly.

"Don't expect us to engage in a bad deal", said US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley during her interview with Meet the Press, while explaining that the USA attempt to revisit its nuclear deal with Iran is created to send a message to North Korea.

Trump has engaged in an escalating war of words with the North's leader Kim Jong-Un, trading personal insults and threatening to "totally destroy" the country if it threatens the United States. However, according to Tweets by President Donald Trump, his Secretary of State is "wasting his time" trying to negotiate with North Korea. In March and April this year, the diplomat reminded, more than 300,000 servicemen took part in the maneuvers, which worked out a preemptive strike on North Korea.

"The entire USA mainland is within our firing range and if the US dares to invade our sacred territory even an inch it will not escape our severe punishment in any part of the globe", he said.

As part of the new sanctions, North Korean workers in the European Union will not have their work permits renewed when they expire, except for refugees and those needing global protection.

"We want the United States to end its hostile policy as for North Korea", said An Tong Chun, who is leading the North Korean delegation.

All the United States mainland is within firing of the DPRK.

An anonymous North Korean official told CNN on Monday that Pyongyang would not pursue diplomacy with Washington before they can develop an intercontinental ballistic missile that can reach "all the way to the East coast of the mainland United States".
