“If a single bullet is fired, we will nuke the United States.”
The statement, issued by the DPRK’s Foreign Ministry, blames America for rising nuclear tensions in the Korean peninsula – describing American actions as an ‘undisguised nuclear war racket’.
The statement said, ‘The Korean People’s Army will reduce the bases of aggression and provocation to ashes with its invincible Hwasong rockets tipped with nuclear warheads and reliably defend the security of the country and its people’s happiness in case the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces fire even a single bullet at the territory of the DPRK,’ Yahoo News reports.
