N. Korean Official: Nuclear War May Break Out at Any Moment

Kim In Ryong, North Korea's deputy ambassador to the United Nations, said on Monday that his nation had become a "full-fledged nuclear power which possesses the delivery means of various ranges" and warned that "the entire USA mainland is within our firing range".

North Korea's deputy United Nations ambassador Kim In Ryong claimed no country other than north Korea had been the victim of "such an extreme and direct nuclear threat from the US".

The deputy ambassador pointed to the large-scale military exercises each year using "nuclear assets" and claimed that the biggest danger is a plan of the United States to organize "a covert operation aimed at eliminating our supreme leadership".

He warned that "the entire continental territory of the United States is in the reach of our fire" and that if the USA undertake an invasion, "they will not be able to escape our strict punishment anywhere in the world".

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Sunday the president wants him to push forward on diplomacy with North Korea "until the first bomb drops".

U.S. President Donald Trump is set to visit South Korea next month for bilateral talks with President Moon Jae-in.

With North Korea taking a halt in a series of military provocations and the United States senior officials stressing the need for diplomatic approach, speculation has emerged that the two sides may seek negotiations.

The lawmaker added that North Korea has to defend itself and develop its nuclear program because the country's existence is at stake due to hostile actions taken by the United States.

He called the North Korean leader a "rocket man" who is on a "suicide mission for himself and his regime".

The European Union has announced new sanctions against the country after it emerged they'd been developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

He told the disarmament committee that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea - North Korea's official name - had hoped for a nuclear-free world.

"Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid", Trump tweeted.

If you go by the comments Trump has made so far, you would presume that the United States is ready to drop the first missile in the Asian continent but analyst, Fareed Zakaria says it is simply lose rhetorics "that cheapens the prestige and power of the US", something he argues Trump has done throughout his business career and personal life and is extending to the White House.

Senior US and Japanese diplomats arrived in Seoul Tuesday to discuss diplomatic measures to tackle North Korea's nuclear and missile threats.
