North Korea warned nuclear strike against US to mark ‘end’ of Kim Jong-un’s rule

North Korea leader Kim Jong Un arrives in Russia via train

North Korea has been warned any nuclear raid on the United States or its allies would seal the end of leader Kim Jong-un.

The Biden administration issued a thundering caution noting an attack would be “unacceptable” and met with an immediate response from Washington DC.

Following a meeting of the United States-Republic of Korea Nuclear Consultative Group, in which the US and South Korea discussed nuclear deterrence efforts, Biden officials said Kim would see his “end” if a nuclear strike went ahead.

The White House specified that an attempt to hit South Korea would be “met with a swift, overwhelming and decisive response.”

The warning came months after Pyongyang shared the results of a simulation showing the impact a nuclear attack with ballistic missiles would have on South Korea.

The rogue regime claimed the tests were a response to joint US-South Korea drills during which American long-range B-1B bombers flew to the Korean Peninsula.

North Korea has now developed and tested ballistic missiles capable of reaching US allies South Korea and Japan as well as the US itself.

And Seoul’s deputy national security adviser Kim Tae-hyo rang alarm bells to warn Pyongyang could test-launch an intercontinental ballistic missile before the end of the month.

Animosities between the two Koreas deepened after North Korea launched its first military reconnaissance satellite into space on November 21 in violation of UN bans.

South Korea, the US and Japan strongly condemned the launch, viewing it as an attempt by the North to improve its missile technology as well as establish a space-based surveillance system.

South Korea announced plans to resume front-line aerial surveillance in response. North Korea quickly retaliated by restoring border guard posts, according to Seoul officials.

Both steps would breach a 2018 inter-Korean deal on easing front-line military tensions.

Jo Chol Su, a senior North Korean Foreign Ministry official, said the North would make all available efforts to protect its national interests in the face of threats by hostile forces.
