North Korea: Trump’s threat is a ‘declaration of war’ and we are not “scared of nuclear war”

The Foreign Affairs Committee of the Supreme People’s Assembly, North Korea’s Parliament, released a letter on Sunday to international leaders, condemning Trump’s “ignorant” threats made during his UN speech and called for “sharp vigilance” with regards to the United States, KCNA reported on Monday.

In his first speech at the UNGA, Trump threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea if necessary.

Trump, who had formerly threatened Pyongyang with “fire and the fury like the world has never seen,” renewed the threat at the UNGA, saying, “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

He called North Korean leader Kim Jong-un a “rocket man” who is “on a suicide mission.”

In response, the North Korean letter described Trump’s comments as an “intolerable insult to the Korean people, a declaration of war against North Korea and grave threats to the global peace.”

“If Trump thinks that he would bring North Korea, a nuclear power, to its knees through nuclear war threat, it is a big miscalculation and ignorance,” read the letter.

Kim responded to Trump’s UN remarks by saying that he “will consider with seriousness exercising of a corresponding, highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history.”
