N. Korea Just Issued a Chilling Statement — This Could Get UGLY!

North Korea has threatened the United States with a nuclear war on Monday.  They warned that World War 3 could happen at “any moment.”  The US and South Korea are conducting major naval exercises surrounding the Korean peninsula, as reported by Bloomberg.North Korean officials issued the stark threat while addressing the United Nations, saying the communist nation has become a “full-fledged” nuclear power capable of striking the east coast of the United States.

“As long as one does not take part in the U.S. military actions against the DPRK, we have no intention to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against any other country,” said Kim In Ryong, North Korea’s deputy ambassador to the UN.

“The entire U.S. mainland is within our firing range and if the U.S. dares to invade our sacred territory even an inch it will not escape our severe punishment in any part of the globe,” added the official.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un had refused direct talks with the United States earlier this week, concerning  his continued nuclear and missile programs.

Pyongyang outright rejected the possible negotiations, saying “before we can engage in diplomacy with the Trump administration, we want to send a clear message that the DPRK has a reliable defensive and offensive capability to counter any aggression from the United States.”
