2018 Winter Olympics: North Korea Agrees To Send Delegation to South Korea After High-Level Meeting
New Delhi, Oct 20: Australia has received a letter from North Korea in which the latter has declared itself as a solid nuclear power and accused White House of driving the world to a nuclear disaster. The letter was termed as “unprecedented” by Julie Bishop- the foreign minister of Australia, reported CNN.
The letter says that if Trump thinks that he will bring North Korea “to its knees through nuclear war threat, it will be a big miscalculation and an expression of ignorance.
It appears as if the letter was dispatched on September 28 that is a week after US President Donald Trump’s address to the United Nations General Assembly where had stated that there was no option but to destroy North Korea completely.
Australia’s prime minister dismissed the letter from North Korea to the Australian Parliament and other countries as a “rant” against President Donald Trump and a sign that Pyongyang is “starting to feel the squeeze” of escalated sanctions. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told that the letter was sent to “a lot of other countries” as well as Australia.
“Kim Jong-un is threatening to fire nuclear missiles at Japan, South Korea and the United States and is spreading instability around the globe, added Turnbull.
Bishop took to Facebook the post the letter of North Korea with a tag: “The collective strategies of allies and partners to impose maximum diplomatic and economic sanctions on North Korea is working.”
The UN sanctions have targeted North Korea from all aspects and Australia believes that sanctions seem to be working as it is getting desperate.
