Pyongyang: Kim Jong Un has threatened “suicidal” Japan with “nuclear clouds” as it blasted Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s call for the world to pile more pressure onto the North Korea.
Kim Jong-un’s state media ripped into Abe accusing him of “running around the UN stage like a headless chicken” and pushing the region into a nuclear war.
Pyongyang’s threat came as Japan’s Defence Minister warned that Kim Jong-Un may carry out another missile test on October 10. The threat followed a warning by Japanese Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera that more provocation is possible from North Korea next week.
Tensions have risen on the Korean peninsula since reclusive North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on Sept. 3, leading to a new round of sanctions after a unanimous vote by the United Nations Security Council. U.S. President Donald Trump has since traded insults with North Korean leaders, raising the stakes even further.
