North Korea Warns of Overwhelming Response to US-South Korea Moves

South Korea and the United States have been warned by North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) that any hostile actions or provocations by the two nations will be greeted with a “overwhelming response.”

The announcement coincides with rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula as a result of recent North Korean missile tests. Also, the nation has criticised the deployment of cutting-edge US military equipment in the area as well as joint military drills between the US and South Korea.

According to the KCNA statement, should any dangerous military action continue, North Korea’s “armed forces would take an overwhelming and practical action, unsparing of the forces of the aggressors and provocateurs.”

The warning is the most recent in a string of belligerent remarks made by North Korea in response to the US and South Korea. Although it is unknown if the nation can carry out its threats, the US and South Korea have kept a sizable military presence in the area as a deterrent.

An escalation of hostilities that could be disastrous could result from any slip-up given the tight situation on the Korean Peninsula. The international community has urged all sides to show moderation and engage in communication in order to settle their disputes amicably.
