Seoul, April 21: After U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated that the country was looking at ways to bring pressure to bear on North Korea over its nuclear program, North Korea warned the US of a super-mighty preemptive strike.According to Tillerson, the United States was reviewing all the status of North Korea, both in terms of state sponsorship of terrorism as well as the other ways in which they can bring pressure on the regime in Pyongyang.
US President Donald Trump will be taking a strict action against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un who has refused warning from China and proceeded with nuclear and missile programs in disobedience of U.N. Security Council sanctions.
Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North's ruling Workers' Party said, "In the case of our super-mighty preemptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only U.S. imperialists invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the whole U.S. mainland and reduce them to ashes”.
Isolated North Korea regularly threatens to destroy Japan, South Korea and Us. They have shown no break in its violence after a failed missile test on Sunday, a day after putting on a huge display of missiles at a parade in Pyongyang.
US Vice President Mike Pence has repeatedly said that an era of strategic patience with North Korea is over and during the visit to London US House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said that the military option must be part of the pressure brought to bear. Adding the point he said, "Allowing this dictator to have that kind of power is not something that civilized nations can allow to happen".
Ryan said “I was encouraged by the results of efforts to work with China to reduce tension, but that it was unacceptable North Korea might be able to strike allies with nuclear weapons.
South Korea's acting president, Hwang Kyo-ahn on Thursday frequently called for the military and security ministries to maintain vigilance.
The defense ministry of South Korea said that until April 28 US and South Korean air forces were conducting an annual training exercise called Max Thunder. North Korea routinely labels such exercises preparations for the invasion.
The North has said it has developed a missile that can strike the US, but officials and experts believe it is some time away from mastering the necessary technology, including miniaturizing a nuclear warhead.
The Russian U.N. mission stated that "When we requested to restore the agreed language that was of political importance and expressed commitment to continue to work on the draft ... the U.S. delegation without providing any explanations canceled the work on the draft".
The United States said they would overly narrow the means by which the international community could arrive at a peaceful and comprehensive solution to the North Korean nuclear problem the US told council members.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said “China believed in the Security Council maintaining unity”. He further added saying "Speaking with one voice is extremely important to the Security Council appropriately responding to the relevant issue on the peninsula”.
There was confusion over the situations of a U.S. aircraft carrier group after Trump said last week an "armada" has been sent as a warning to North Korea, even though the ships were far from Korean waters.
