Pyongyang, September 26: Threatening each other, North Korea and United States of America have created much of a dilemma for the rest of the world whose left confused. Throwing dirt on each other, North Korea accuses US has declared war. The North Korean foreign minister Ri Yong-ho said: “The whole world should clearly remember it was the US who first declared war on our country.” He referred in particular to Trump’s tweet on Sunday that warned that the regime’s leaders “won’t be around much longer”.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders on Monday denied the United States had declared war, calling the suggestion ‘absurd’. The first address of this drama was seen at the UN General Assembly, where North Korean foreign minister Ri-Yong-ho said, “However, last weekend Trump claimed that our leadership won’t be around much longer, and hence at last he declared war on our country. Given the fact that this came from someone who holds the seat of the US presidency, this clearly is a declaration of war.”
On Saturday, US Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers escorted by fighters flew east of North Korea in a show of force after a heated exchange of rhetoric between Trump and Kim over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.
North Korea, which has remained technically at war with the United States since the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a truce and not a peace treaty, has been working to develop nuclear-tipped missiles capable of hitting the US mainland and conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test this month.
However, experts and officials say the risks of all out war are now substantially greater. North Korea, officially known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), has developed and tested a nuclear warhead, probably a hydrogen bomb, and long range missiles, while the leaders of both countries have made the confrontation between their two countries, a personal test of strength.
The UN secretary general, António Guterres, warned that heated rhetoric could only increases the risk of confrontation.
