North Korea threatens 'unimaginable' strike on United States
North Korea issued another threat of nuclear annihilation against the U.S. on Thursday, vowing to unleash an “unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time.”
The warning comes as American military forces conduct ongoing joint naval exercises with South Korea.
“The U.S. is running amok by introducing under our nose the targets we have set as primary ones,” North Korean state news agency KCNA said in a statement. “The U.S. should expect that it would face unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time.”
North Korea also targeted President Trump directly.
“The rabid man in the White House … will first face the immense volley of nuclear fire if he hopes to settle (this) confrontation with nukes,” KCNA said.
Trump has engaged in a heated war of words with the rogue nation since taking office.
North Korea’s deputy U.N. ambassador, Kim In Ryong, said Monday at the United Nations that the situation on the Korean Peninsula had “reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment.”
