North Korea reportedly threatens ‘new round of the Korean War’ to end US

North Korea’s embassy in Moscow has threatened to use its nation’s nuclear weapons against the United States in what they claim would be “a particularly sensational event,” a Russian state-owned news agency reports.

The reporting comes from the TASS news agency, a state-owned wire service known largely as a propaganda outlet for the Kremlin, which claims the embassy sent them the threat in the form of a statement over the weekend.

The agency quotes the embassy as stating, “This year, the U.S. military has been carrying out various kinds of military maneuvers in South Korea and its vicinity with the purpose of striking North Korea quickly.”

“A new round of the Korean War will add a particularly sensational event to the history of mankind, which will put an end to another empire, whose name is the United States,” it continues.

While the statement has not been reported elsewhere, it was released in the days ahead of the 70th anniversary of the start of the Korean War.

The war began on June 25, 1950, when Chinese- and Soviet-backed forces from the North invaded the South. Within weeks, the US engaged in the conflict on behalf of the South, arguing it was a fight against communism on the international stage.

The Hermit Kingdom has been vocal in recent days about its efforts to go after its enemy to the south, using its own state-run news agency to announce it is amassing a pile of anti-South propaganda leaflets “as big as a mountain.”

Once it has completed the “mountain” of propaganda leaflets denouncing South Koreans and defectors from the North, it plans to launch them across the border and scatter them over the country.

It is a tit-for-tat move by the North, where government officials had grown tired of anti-North leaflets being launched from the South into the country inside bottles and balloons by defectors.

The practice of launching the leaflets over the border had been utilized by North Korean defectors for years. South Korea’s military, however, stopped sending leaflets over the border in 2010.

Those groups of defectors also are known to send along food, dollar bills, mini radios and USB sticks of South Korean news and dramas.

Last week, Kim Jong Un, the North’s supreme leader, permitted his sister, Kim Yo Jong, to order a liaison office between the North and the South to be blown up.

The office had been operated with the South for the past two years.

Kim Yo Jong described South Korea as “the enemy” when announcing the explosion, warning that the country would soon see the collapse of the “useless” office.

“By exercising my power authorized by the supreme leader, our party and the state, I gave an instruction to the arms of the department in charge of the affairs with enemy to decisively carry out the next action,” she said in a statement carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency.
