North Korea accuses US of bringing region to the brink of war

NORTH KOREA has threatened to carry out weekly missile tests amid rising military tensions with the US over the rogue state’s nuclear ambitions.

“We’ll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis,” Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol told the BBC in Pyongyang.

He threatened an “all-out war” if the US was “reckless enough to use military means”.

Meanwhile, the country’s deputy UN ambassador blamed the US for the spike in tensions.

Kim In Ryong accused the Trump administration of turning the Korean peninsula into “the world’s biggest hotspot” and creating “a dangerous situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment.” He told a news conference on Monday that US-South Korean military exercises being staged now are the largest-ever “aggressive war drill.”

He said North Korea’s measures to bolster its nuclear forces are self-defensive “to cope with the US vicious nuclear threat and blackmail.” He says his country “is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the US.”

Australia’s government has reissued calls for China to do more to rein in North Korea as the rogue nation threatens “weekly” missile tests.

Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop says if North Korea is allowed to continue its nuclear and missile program, it would create “extraordinary instability” in the region and could lead to armed conflict.

While Ms Bishop did not express an opinion on US Vice President Mike Pence’s declaration that the “era of strategic patience is over”, she said Australia would continue to back international efforts to force North Korea to give up its nuclear program.

“The Trump Administration has explicitly rejected President Obama’s approach of strategic patience because that led to a stalemate, during which time North Korea’s illegal missile and nuclear program accelerated,” Ms Bishop said.
