After a round of sanctions has passed against North Korea in the United Nations, North Korea has been enraged at the United States. One North Korean media outlet claims the sanctions are a “flagrant violation of [their] sovereignty.” The sanctions came as a result of North Koreans missile tests. North Korean foreign minister Ri Yong Ho says the tests are self-defense being quoted saying “possession of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles is a legitimate option for self-defence in the face of a clear and real nuclear threat posed by the US,” in a statement. Ri adds “We will, under no circumstances, put the nukes and ballistic rockets on the negotiating table,” and says if military force is used by the US “teach the US a severe lesson.”
North Korea continued on releasing statements claiming that the US is frenzied and desperate in another statement. Another news agency claimed the missile tests were a “stern warning” to the US and warned Washington for believing our land is safe across the water.
Things are getting testy in the Korean peninsula. For now it looks like everyone is on guard against North Korea, hopefully, the threat of what can result from a nuclear war can keep the world safe.
