North Korea is once again threatening to attack Guam. The country’s state-run media issued a warning Wednesday, saying its missile launch over Japan Tuesday was a preview for a planned strike on the U.S. territory. Meanwhile, South Korea and Japan agreed to significantly increase the pressure on Pyongyang, demanding even stricter U.N. sanctions against North Korea.
New reports suggest North Korea is developing a stronger type of nuclear missile. Weapons experts say Pyongyang is sending a message it’s working on an ICBM more powerful than any it has previously tested. Meanwhile, Japan says it will impose additional sanctions on North Korea.
(Reuters) – In North Korea’s effort to become a nuclear power capable of striking the United States, leader Kim Jong Un has telegraphed what his scientists and weapons experts are achieving.
New reports out of North Korea suggest that nukes are not the only kind of weapons the U.S. has to worry about. Kim Jong Un has been collecting large amounts of chemical weapons, including sarin gas and VX.
North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un backs off of threats of a possible ICBM launch. North Korean state media said Kim Jong-un decided against the strike yesterday, but claimed he could change his mind if quote, ‘the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous and reckless actions.” The hesitation comes after President Trump assured America would retaliate with “fire and fury” if the hostile country acted on its proposed threats to the U.S.
