As tensions with North Korea continue to escalate, world leaders continue to search for a solution.
But is Kim Jong Un interested in a peaceful resolution?
North Korea’s latest warning could be the most dire sign that World War 3 is about to break out.
The world is on edge after North Korea successfully conducted their sixth nuclear test.
It measured a 6.3 in magnitude from seismic monitoring stations and was the nation’s largest ever.
Following this shocking turn of events, reports indicated Pyongyang was moving an intercontinental ballistic missile to the coast for another test launch.
North Korea’s top diplomat then said the rogue regime was going to press forward with their program and that “more gift packages” would be coming the United States’ way.
The Mirror reports:
North Korea said nuclear tests are “gift packages” to the United States and that more will follow.
Han Tae Song, the ambassador of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the UN in Geneva, made the comment during a UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament today.
The warning comes two days after his country detonated its sixth and largest nuclear test.
“The recent self-defence measures by my country, DPRK, are a gift package addressed to none other than the US,” Han told the Geneva forum.
“The US will receive more gift packages from my country as long as its relies on reckless provocations and futile attempts to put pressure on the DPRK.”
North Korea’s latest provocation came after America’s Ambassador to the United Nations warned that Kim Jong Un is “begging for war.”
The Mirror also reports:
“The provocative move came as the US Ambassador to the United Nations claimed Kim Jong-un is “begging for war”.
Speaking at an emergency meeting, Nikki Haley told the UN Security Council that war “is never something the United States wants” – but “our country’s patience is not unlimited”.
She also said it was time for the council to impose “the strongest possible measures” on the secretive nation following its sixth and largest nuclear test.
She said that “enough is enough”.
Her comments came as US President Donald Trump and his South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, agreed to lift the warhead weight limit on South Korea’s missiles in the wake of North Korea’s latest missile launch.
Ms Haley claimed the incremental sanctions approach of the 15-member council to North Korea since 2006 had not worked.”
North Korea is showing no signs of backing down.
They are determined to develop a nuclear weapon that can strike anywhere in the United States.
But Donald Trump and other administration officials have warned that any threats to the U.S. mainland or allies will lead to the complete annihilation of North Korea.
