North Korea Declared Right To Shoot US Planes, Said Trump Declared War

North Korea Declared Right To Shoot US Planes, Said Trump Declared War”

Four days later, the North Korean foreign minister, Ri Yong-ho, accused Trump of being on a "suicide mission" and declared, "In case innocent lives of the United States are lost because of this suicide attack, Trump will be held totally responsible".

"All the member states and the whole world should clearly remember it was the United States that first declared war on our country", Ri said.

North Korea threatened on Monday to shoot down USA warplanes even if they were not in the country's airspace, stating that President Donald J. Trump's comments suggesting he would eradicate North Korea and its leaders were "a declaration of war".

"The world, including all member states now attending the United Nations General Assembly, must clearly remember that this time, America declared war on us first".

North Korea has threatened to shoot down U.S. bombers in global airspace, claiming that, with a weekend tweet, Donald Trump had declared war.

Trump has been pushing China to use its deep economic ties with North Korea to pressure the country's young leader to back down from developing nuclear weapons. Ri said the United Nations and the worldwide community had hoped that the war of words between the two countries would not turn into "real action".

"We are targeting North Korean banks and financial facilitators acting as representatives for North Korean banks across the globe", Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement Tuesday.

It is imperative that South Korea and the United States manage the crisis with North Korea to prevent further escalation or any kind of military clash which could quickly spiral out of control, South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung Wha told an audience at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

The bellicose rhetoric comes as global alarm mounts over Pyongyang´s weapons ambitions - including a suggestion by Ri last week that the country is considering detonating an H-bomb over the Pacific.

It comes after US Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers flew close to the Korea peninsula at the weekend in a show of strength.

"The question of who won't be around much longer will be answered then", Ri added.

The North Korean targets mark the first use of new sanctioning powers that Trump created in an executive order he signed last week to target North Korea's access to the worldwide banking system.

The U.N. Security Council unanimously adopted its ninth round of sanctions on Pyongyang to counter its nuclear and ballistic missiles programs.

"Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!"

Pyongyang, which has pursued its missile and nuclear programs in defiance of global sanctions, accuses the United States of planning to invade and regularly threatens to destroy it and its Asian allies.

In an unprecedented direct statement on Friday, Kim called Trump a "mentally deranged US dotard" he would tame with fire.

A Pentagon spokesman stressed the bombers flew in global airspace and had every right to do so.

"It is imperative that we, Korea and the USA together, manage the situation in order to prevent further escalation of tensions or any kind of accidental military clashes which can quickly go out of control".

Subsequently, North Korea sent two missiles sailing over Japan, much to Tokyo's consternation, to demonstrate that Guam was within its striking distance.
