A North Korean official spoke out today to say that “nuclear war could break out at any moment” if President Donald Trump is “reckless enough to use military means” to stop them from testing their nuclear missiles.
“We’ll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis,” said North Korea’s Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol, according to The Sun. He added that it’s “crystal clear” Trump is “hell bent” on prompting war with North Korea.
“A nuclear war could break out at any moment on the Korean Peninsula,” Han said. “The United States are disturbing the peace and global stability, insisting in a gangster logic.”
This came after Vice President Mike Pence flew to Seoul and warned North Korea not to test the U.S., saying that his country’s “era of strategic patience” with North Korea was over.
“Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed the strength and resolve of our new president in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan,” Mr Pence said. “North Korea would do well not to test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region.”
North Korea, however, seems to have no intention of backing down.
“If the US is planning a military attack against us, we will react with a nuclear pre-emptive strike by our own style and method,” Han said.
Please pray for us all!
