 N.Korea Threatens Nuclear Strike on South —KCNA

North Korea has once again threatened to launch a nuclear strike on South Korea, according to a statement released by the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). The statement comes amid rising tensions between the two countries, with North Korea accusing South Korea of allowing defectors to send anti-North Korean propaganda across the border.

The KCNA statement warned that North Korea would “turn Seoul into a sea of fire” if South Korea did not stop the propaganda broadcasts. The statement also accused South Korea of “reckless military provocations” and warned that North Korea was “fully prepared to launch a preemptive nuclear strike” if necessary.

The threat of a nuclear strike from North Korea is not new, but it has become more frequent in recent years as the country has continued to develop its nuclear weapons program. North Korea has conducted several nuclear tests in the past decade, and its leader, Kim Jong-un, has repeatedly threatened to use nuclear weapons against the United States and its allies.

The latest threat from North Korea comes at a time when tensions between the two Koreas are already high. In June, North Korea blew up a joint liaison office with South Korea, which had been set up to improve communication between the two countries. The move was seen as a major setback for efforts to improve relations between the two Koreas.

The propaganda broadcasts that North Korea is objecting to are being carried out by defectors who have fled North Korea and are now living in South Korea. The broadcasts include news and information about life in South Korea, as well as criticism of the North Korean regime.

South Korea has said that it will continue the broadcasts, despite the threats from North Korea. The country’s defense ministry has also said that it is closely monitoring the situation and is prepared to respond to any provocations from North Korea.

The threat of a nuclear strike from North Korea is a serious concern for the international community. The United States and its allies have been working to pressure North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program, but so far, those efforts have been unsuccessful.

In the meantime, the threat of a nuclear strike from North Korea remains a very real possibility, and one that the world cannot afford to ignore. The international community must continue to work together to find a peaceful solution to the crisis on the Korean peninsula, before it is too late.
