In yet another escalation of the (so far) diplomatic conflict between the rogue Pyongyang regime and the Western world, the North Korean United Nations envoy has warned the General Assembly that the situation in the region “has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment.”, end quote.
According to the North Korean envoy Kim In-ryong, his country is the only one in the world intimidated with ““such an extreme and direct nuclear threat” . However, if memory serves, it was always North Korea posturing and threatening other countries with nuclear annihilation, not the other way around, but let that go for now. Also, it was communist China-backed North Korea who invaded the South and started the Korean war in the fifties.
Kim In-ryong went on further and accused Donald Trump’s administration of planning a “secret operation aimed at the removal of our supreme leadership”, end quote, as if such a move would be a bad thing. He also defended North Korea’s right to develop a nuclear paraphernalia as being for guess what: self defense. Again, this skewed rhetoric doesn’t hold water, as North Korea made a habit in recent months from threatening other countries with preemptive nuke strikes for the silliest of reasons.
The North Korean envoy to the UN insisted that his country will never renounce its nuclear program while speaking in front of the General Assembly, claiming that Pyongyang’s nuclear program is, let me quote again: a “precious strategic asset that cannot be reversed or bartered for anything,”.
He again warned the United States, falling in line with dear leader Kim Jong-un’s previous bellicose rhetoric, that:
“the entire US mainland is within our firing range and if the US dares to invade our sacred territory even an inch it will not escape our severe punishment in any part of the globe.”
while claiming that North Korea supports a complete denuclearization for all countries in the world, provided that the United States renounces it first. Kim In-ryong has (ironically) said:
the DPRK consistently supports the total elimination of nuclear weapons and the efforts for denuclearization of the entire world. Unless the hostile policy and the nuclear threat of the US is thoroughly eradicated, we will never put our nuclear weapons and ballistic rockets on the negotiating table under any circumstances,”
It is increasingly obvious that international economic sanctions on North Korea are not working, as the rogue communist regime keeps pushing with its regular test blasts and launches of ICBMs, while winding up its nuclear program.
