In a statement from the Information Ministry of the Kim Jong Un regime, Pyongyang warned the United States with a promise to fire a “salvo of missiles” at the US Island territory of Guam in the Pacific.
The North Korean state media mentioned that their hand is “close to the trigger”. This threat and statement is likely a response from Pyongyang as the USA and South Korea prepare for military drills in the region.
The upcoming War Games will involve the United States and its ally, Seoul, in a series of war exercises amidst tensions with the ‘Hermit Kingdom’ of North Korea. These drills and war games are set to begin this coming Monday, just off the shore of the Republic of Korea.
In an article released by one of North Koreas state news agencies, they said:
“We have already warned several times that we will take counteractions for self-defence including a salvo of missiles into waters near the US territory of Guam, an advance base for invading the DPRK, where key US bases are located.”
“The US military action hardens our determination that the US should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to ‘trigger’ for taking the toughest countermeasure,” said Kim Kwang Hak, wrote in the article.
