US Military Drills Raising Specter of Nuclear War, North Korea Warns

US Military Drills Raising Specter of Nuclear War, North Korea Warns

North Korea complained to the United Nations about joint military exercises by the US and South Korea, saying they have increased the risk of a nuclear war.

Alwaght- North Korea complained to the United Nations on Monday about joint military exercises by the United States and South Korea, saying they have increased the risk of a nuclear war.

In a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, North Korean Ambassador to the UN Ja Song Nam said the US was “running amok for war exercises by introducing nuclear war equipment in and around the Korean Peninsula.”

He added that the joint military exercises by the US and South Korea, have resulted in the “the worst ever situation” because US nuclear war equipment had been deployed ready to strike.

Three US aircraft carrier strike groups have been involved in the joint exercise in the Western Pacific in a rare show of force as President Donald Trump visits Asia. The last time three US carrier strike groups exercised together in the Western Pacific was in 2007.

South Korea has said the joint drill, due to finish on Tuesday, was in response to North Korean nuclear and missile provocations and to show any such developments by Pyongyang can be repelled with “overwhelming force.”

However, Ja said Washington was to blame for escalating tensions and accused the UN Security Council of ignoring “the nuclear war exercises of the United States who is hell bent on bringing catastrophic disaster to humanity.”

Ja asked Guterres to bring to the attention of the 15-member council - under the rarely used Article 99 of the UN Charter - “the danger being posed by the US nuclear war exercises, which are clearly threats to international peace and security.”

The US Air Force is meanwhile reportedly preparing to place its fleet of B-52 bombers rigged with nuclear weapons on 24-hour alert for the first time since 1991 amid escalating tensions with North Korea.

The North Korean leader ordered the production of more rocket warheads and engines in August, shortly after the US suggested that its threats of military action and sanctions were having an impact on Pyongyang’s behavior.

Pyongyang says it will not give up on its nuclear deterrence unless Washington ends its hostile policy toward the country and dissolves the US-led UN command in South Korea. Thousands of US soldiers are stationed in South Korea and Japan.
