North Korea warns U.S. of 'unimaginable strike' on USA vessel

Darren Stanton

North Korea has threatened the United States of an "unimaginable" nuclear strike for conducting military exercises with South Korea in the waters off the Korean peninsula.

The exercise involves the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and its carrier strike group.

"The US is running amok by introducing under our nose the targets we have set as primary ones".

The group warned that warmongers in the US and South Korea must not forget that North Korea will carry out self-defense moves at any time, warning of the highest level of strong responses to the ongoing military drills between Seoul and Washington.

Other statements released by North Korea over the last day include: "The rabid man in the White House ... will first face the vast volley of nuclear fire if he hopes to settle (this) confrontation with nukes".

The US Navy's biggest warship in Asia, with a crew of 5,000 sailors, launched nearly 90 F-18 Super Hornet sorties from its deck, in sight of South Korean islands. In addition, in recent years North Korea has dramatically increased the number of missile tests and threatened to strike the island of GUAM belonging to the USA.

The American and South Korean militaries routinely carry out joint exercises, much to the chagrin of North Korea.

North Korea claimed in its statement that the drill "proves that the US and South Korean puppet authorities are attempting to ignite a war on the Korean peninsula at any cost".

Since 2008, photographer Eric Lafforgue ventured to North Korea six times.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his wife attend a performance dedicated to nuclear scientists and technicians in Pyongyang, North Korea, Sep.

On Monday, Kim In-ryong, North Korea's deputy UN envoy, told a UN General Assembly committee the Korean peninsula situation had reached a touch-and-go point and a nuclear war could break out at any moment.

The remarks come amid escalating tensions between Washington and Pyongyang.

United States President Donald Trump has said he would "totally destroy" North Korea in defense of the US or its allies.

Russian Federation also condemned North Korea's latest underground nuclear test and urged its regime to begin negotiations with South Korea, something the North has so far rejected. Last week, Pyongyang renewed its threat to fire a missile toward the USA territory of Guam, saying the exercise would compel them to "take military counteraction". "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".
