The North Korean Permanent Mission to the UN said in a statement on Wednesday that the country is not afraid to “win a victory in the death-defying struggle against the US imperialists.”
“The DPRK (The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea), as a peace-loving socialist state, highly values the sustaining of the peace most of all, but it neither fears a war nor wants to avoid it,” the statement said.
“The DPRK has access to a powerful nuclear deterrent to protect itself from the US nuclear threat,” the statement said.
The DPRK then threatened that it to would use nuclear weapons if the US decided to use them against the socialist state.
“The DPRK will react to a total war with an all-out war, a nuclear war with nuclear strikes of its own style and surely win a victory in the death-defying struggle against the U.S. imperialists,” the statement went on.
The statement said “It is an unshakable will of the DPRK to go to the end if the US wants to remain unchanged in its confrontational stance”.
“It is to mention that our heaviest counteractions will include a sudden preemptive attack involving maneuvers on the ground, in seas, under waters and in the air and various other methods and the Korean-style tough counter-actions will be promptly taken to cope with the provocations of any forms and levels from the US,” it said.
