Nuclear war may break out any time, warns North Korea

North Korea's deputy United Nations ambassador Kim In Ryong claimed no country other than north Korea had been the victim of "such an extreme and direct nuclear threat from the US".

North Korea has sent another worrying warning to the world saying that nuclear war could "break out any moment" as tensions rise between the rogue state and the United States.

"The entire continental part of the United States is within reach of our missiles, and if the U.S. dares to invade our sacred territory even by an inch, they will face serious consequences, Kim Ying Ryong claimed".

North Korea's diplomat to the United Nation's told reporters on September 25 that Trump's tweet is a "declaration of war", which the administration has denied.

President Trump has recently tweeted that attempts to negotiate with North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, are a "waste of time".

"Maybe it's true that the North has no interest at this moment in having the negotiations that involve its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles", Gallucci said during a lecture at Yonsei University, adding that it is "possible" North Korea does not want to negotiate with the U.S. until they prove workable ICBM capability.

The top U.S. commander in the Pacific warned Tuesday he must "imagine the unimaginable" in responding to the threat posed by the North Korea's nuclear weapons programme.

The talks come as the USA and South Korea hold joint naval drills this week. With this in mind, he said that the country had the right to manufacture nuclear weapons of their own in self-defence.

Tensions have escalated in the region as Trump and the North Korean leadership have engaged in a war of words over Pyongyang's ballistic missile and nuclear tests this year.

LUXEMBOURG-The European Union banned the sale of oil and oil products to North Korea on Monday, in a largely symbolic move aimed at encouraging countries that have more significant levels of trade with the country to follow suit.
