North Korea ‘not afraid’ as it plans new nuclear test, says ambassador in UK

Katie Stallard – May 9, 2017

North Korea’s ambassador to the UK has told Sky News his country will go ahead with its sixth nuclear test at the time and place of its leader’s choosing.

In his first interview in the role, ambassador Choe Il said his country would continue its ballistic missile and nuclear programmes in spite of intentional warnings against them, and dismissed UN sanctions as having no legal grounds, and no effect.

“In regards to the sixth nuclear test, I do not know the scheduled time for it, as I am here in the UK, not in my home country,” Mr Choe said.

“However, I can say that the nuclear test will be conducted at the place and time as decided by our supreme leader, Kim Jong-Un.”

Reading the news, we can see that many nations, not a few, are on a war footing.  The U.S is justifiably concerned about this potential thread from North Korea, and is looking at ways to increase the protection from such missiles that are able to reach the U.S.

There is a God in heaven who offers individuals and nations protection from those that would like to attack them.  It would be a very wise individual or nation that would heed this message from the Almighty.

“Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.”  Deut 28:6-7

What a wonderful blessing and fantastic saving on a nation’s defence budget.  But there is a condition.

“And it shall come to pass if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth.

And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.” Deut 28 1-2

Now here’s the problem.  The difficulty is coming under the authority of one who knows how things work.  Commandment keepers know the blessings that come from such a way of life.  Unfortunately, not every individual or nation agrees and so the problem for man goes on.  What a wonderful world it will be when we don’t have to worry about another individual or nation wanting to obliterate us from the face of the earth.
