North Korea warns hostile US policies could spark nuclear war

Pyongyang , Tue, 02 Oct 2012 ANI

Pyongyang, Oct. 2 (ANI): A North Korean minister has lashed out at the United States, saying its 'hostile' policy has left the Korean peninsula a spark away from a nuclear war.

Vice Foreign Minister Pak Kil Yon told the U.N. General Assembly that the Koreas have become 'the world's most dangerous hotspot' and blamed the 'hostile' policy of the United States towards North Korea.

"The vicious cycle of confrontation and aggravation of tension is an ongoing phenomenon on the Korean peninsula, which has become the world's most dangerous hotspot where a spark of fire could set off a thermonuclear war," Kil Yon said.

According to the Daily Star, he also accused the U.S. of seeking to use force to occupy the entire Korean peninsula, divided between the communist North and democratic South, and 'use it as a stepping stone for realising its strategy of dominating the whole of Asia'.

He said the U.S. has finalised scenarios for a new Korean War and 'is waiting for a chance to implement them'.

In an apparent reference to North Korea's nuclear arsenal and massive military, he said the nation's 'patience and self-defensive war deterrent', have prevented U.S. military provocations 'from turning into an all-out war on the Korean peninsula'.

"However, the DPRK's patience does not mean it is unlimited," he warned, using the initials of the country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

According to the report, Pak warned that "not a single problem including the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula can be resolved without the elimination of the hostile policy of the United States, which regards the DPRK as a target of hostility and tries to stifle it at any cost". (ANI)
