Nuclear War Likely on the Korean Peninsula: North Korea

N Korea Rationalizes Nukes and Missiles as Way to Protect Itself From US

North Korea has sent another worrying warning to the world saying that nuclear war could "break out any moment" as tensions rise between the rogue state and the United States.

"Conventional war with North Korea would be catastrophic both in lost lives and monetary cost...", Reed said.

European Union foreign ministers also agreed in Luxembourg not to renew work permits for North Koreans in the European Union while lowering the ceiling for an individual remittance to North Korea to 5,000 euros ($5,900) from 15,000 euros. It's been almost a quarter century of the same diplomatic policies under three different presidential administrations with very few results other than passing off the North Korea nuclear problem to their successor.

In addition, North Korea announced the possibility of a nuclear test soon in the Pacific, and US President Donald Trump threatened to completely destroy the country. As reported by Fox News, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson yesterday said that diplomacy will continue with North Korea, "until the first bomb drops". He said the US can forestall war through unified and consistent rhetoric, increased cooperation with key global players and a focus on increasing diplomatic and military capacity to properly address North Korea.


"The entire U.S. mainland is within our firing range and if the U.S. dares to invade our sacred territory even an inch it will not escape our severe punishment in any part of the globe", the statement read.

The US hasn't ruled out direct talks with North Korea following talks with its ally Japan.

As part of the new sanctions, North Korean workers in the European Union will not have their work permits renewed when they expire, except for refugees and those needing global protection.

Diplomacy with North Korea will be fruitless until the rogue nation has developed intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching targets on the United States' eastern seaboard, an official in Pyongyang has declared.
