North Korean state media has condemned a US bombing drill on the Korean peninsula, warning that the move could spark a nuclear war.
An editorial published in state newspaper Rodong Sinmun Sunday accused the US of “military provocations” which are raising the threat of nuclear conflict to an extreme level.
“The Korean peninsula is the largest gunpowder area in the world with the highest risk of nuclear war, and is the largest hot spot in the world where there is always a risk of nuclear war. [The US] is surely spreading into a new world war,” the piece reads.
The article also accuses the Trump administration of using the Korean peninsula to distract from the US president’s “serious crisis of power” at home.
