North Korea threatens ‘immediate nuclear strike’ on enemies even over the ‘slightest provocation’

Kim Jong-Un’ sister have threatened an “immediate” nuclear strike on their enemies even over the “slightest provocation.”

North Korea’s cabinet warned on Sunday there will be an “immediate military strike” on the West as tensions reach an all-time high.

Kim Yo-Jong said in a warning, “I make myself clear once again that the safety catch of trigger of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) had already been slipped.

“As already declared, the KPA will launch an immediate military strike if the enemy makes even a slight provocation.”

Senior analyst at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies Cha Du-hyeogn told The Korea Times, “Among the top priorities, the ‘supersized’ nuclear warhead is the only weapon that has not been revealed.

“After his announcement, North Korea may move to test it before unveiling it to the world.”

However, experts believe that this is a way for North Korea to be recognised a superior threat.

Researcher at the Korea Institute for National Unification Kim Jin-ha said, “It is important to keep in mind that North Korea is doing all this to pressure US politicians to recognise it as a significant threat they should deal with.

“To convince them, North Korea could test its tactical nuclear weapon or test-launch its intercontinental ballistic missile at a normal angle (instead of a high angle) to demonstrate its ability to strike the US mainland.”

She called South Korea’s army “gangsters and clowns in military uniforms” which comes after both North and South fired around 600 shells at each other on Saturday.

North Korea fired 200 artillery shells and South Korea hit back with around 400 in a live exercise.

South Korea’s Defence Minister Shin Won-sik said, “North Korea resuming its artillery fire drills inside the non-hostility zone this morning is an act of provocation which threatens peace on the Korean Peninsula and raises tension.

“Our military must assume the readiness to completely wipe out the enemy so that they wouldn’t dare another provocation, and to back up the pace through strength.”
