PYONGYANG, (BM) – North Korea threatened to destroy the United States in the event of a resumption of war on the peninsula. This was reported in the message of the DPRK Embassy in Russia on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
Diplomats noted that this year the “American military” is conducting various military maneuvers in South Korea, the main purpose of which is to deploy American forces from abroad on the Korean Peninsula to quickly strike at the DPRK.
The embassy also reminded that North Korea has nuclear missiles that can punish anyone “who dares to raise a hand against us.” “A new round of the Korean War will add a particularly sensational event to the history of mankind, which will put an end to another empire, whose name is the United States,” said representatives of Pyongyang.
On June 12, DPRK Foreign Minister Lee Song Gwon announced that relations between North Korea and the United States had turned hopeless in two years. The Foreign Minister said that the situation on the Korean peninsula “is rolling for the worse from day to day.” According to him, from the first meeting of American and Korean leaders Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un in 2018, “hopes gave way to despair,” and “a spark of optimism for peaceful prosperity died out under the pressure of a pessimistic nightmare.”
The war between North and South Korea lasted from June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953. Pyongyang was helped by the USSR and China, on the side of Seoul, the United States, Great Britain and other countries under the UN flag participated in the war. Over the course of three years, about 1.3 million Koreans were killed and wounded, and Washington lost about 36.6 thousand of its soldiers in this conflict. The war ended in a truce in 1953, which is valid to this day.
