North Korea aren’t making many friends of late, are they? The Asian country is currently at loggerheads with the United States and are now lashing out at any country that aligns themselves with the USA. Next up? Kim Jong-Un‘s focusing on Australia…
Apparently, if they continue to ‘blindly and zealously toe the US line’, North Korea will launch nuclear airstrikes against them. Empty threat? Or real danger?
North Korea’s state news agency (The KCNA) released this statement, threatening the Aussies:
“If Australia persists in following the US moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and remains a shock brigade of the US master, this will be a suicidal act of coming within the range of the nuclear strike of the strategic force of the DPRK.”
“The Australian foreign minister had better think twice about the consequences to be entailed by her reckless tongue-lashing before flattering the US.”
It goes on:
“It is hard to expect good words from the foreign minister of such a government. But if she is the foreign minister of a country, she should speak with elementary common sense about the essence of the situation.”
