North Korea has raised the temperatures in the international political landscape by sending out a stern warning to the United States in form of a “unimaginable” nuclear strike for conducting military exercises with South Korea in the waters off the Korean peninsula, according to a report on Thursday.
“The U.S. is running amok by introducing under our nose the targets we have set as primary ones,” the state-controlled Korean Central News Agency warned, Newsweek reported. “The U.S. should expect that it would face an unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time.”
The regime also blamed the US for “creating tension on the eve of war” by taking part in civilian evacuation drills in South Korea.
US and South Korea military forces began five days of military exercises on Monday that involve fighter jets, helicopters and about 40 ships and submarines.
