North Korea's top diplomat says Donald Trump lit fuse of war

14 October 2017

The actions have not gone unnoticed in North Korea, which has threatened the key US naval and air force bases on America's Pacific territory of Guam that houses about 160,000 people.

The USS Michigan nuclear-powered submarine enters the naval base of Busan, South Korea, on October 13, 2017. But in August, President Donald Trump said that he would bring "fire and fury" and "totally destroy" the country if North Korea takes direct action.

'If US imperialists and the South Korean puppets ignite a nuclear war of aggression against us, it would only advance their own demise, ' the state-run KCNA news agency said.

"We have already warned several times that we will take counteractions for self-defence, including a salvo of missiles into waters near the United States territory of Guam", Mr Kim, the researcher, told the North's official Korean Central News Agency.

The two U.S. Air Force B-1B bombers were joined by two F-15K fighters from the South Korean military after leaving their base in Guam, South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement on Wednesday.

Part of that could be the complete lack of confidence the US has in President Donald Trump's ability to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The professor added Carter would like to meet with Kim Jong-un to discuss a peace treaty with the USA and would push for a complete denuclearization of North Korea.

Kim Jong-un's regime hit back today saying the war drill "hardened our determination that the USA should be tamed with fire".

Earlier this week the United States held joint military exercises with Japan and South Korea in a highly provocative move in the Sea of Japan.

The maneuvers will take place in a time of high tension in the peninsula following the interaction of warmongering, some say, between the regime led by Kim Jong-un and Trump, who plans to visit the region between the 2nd and 14th of November.

"Right now, we think the threat is manageable", Kelly told reporters at the White House.

It is unlikely to have any effect on next week's planned major joint-navy drill between Sourth Korea and the U.S. Over 60 percent said they do have confidence in "top national security and diplomatic officials" to handle the situation.
