Trump has declared war, says North Korea

North Korea’s foreign minister on Monday accused US President Donald Trump of declaring war against his country and said Pyongyang was ready to defend itself by shooting down US bombers.

The latest threats stoked a week-long war of words that began when the American leader threatened in his address to the United Nations General Assembly to “totally destroy” North Korea if it launches an attack.

Alarm over Pyongyang’s nuclear and ballistic missile program has dominated this year’s gathering of world leaders at the UN, amid fears the heated rhetoric could accidentally trigger a war — fears further heightened after US bombers flew off the coast of North Korea on Saturday.

Speaking to reporters outside his New York hotel, Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho offered a response to Trump after the US leader warned on Twitter at the weekend that North Korea “won’t be around much longer” if it keeps up its threats.

Ri said that the international community had hoped that the “war of words between the DPRK and the United States not turn into real actions.”

“However, last weekend, Trump claimed our leadership would not be around much longer,” Ri said. “He declared a war on our country.”

“Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to take counter-measures including the right to shoot down US strategic bombers even when they are not yet inside the airspace border of our country,” he said.

“The question of who won’t be around much longer will be answered then.”

Ri noted that the statement from Trump was “clearly a declaration of war” even if it came from the US president. Under the US Constitution, Congress is the sole power that can declare war.
