North Korea : We will ‘sink’ Japan and reduce US to ‘ashes and darkness’ – On Thursday a North Korean state agency threatened to use nuclear weapons to drown Japan and destroy America to “ashes and darkness” because U.S supports the latest UN Security Council resolution and sanctions on a nuclear test conducted on September 3, 2017, Reuters reported on Sept. 14, 2017 .
A similar reaction was also made by the Korea-Asia Pacific Peace Committee, which is in charge of North Korea’s foreign relations and propaganda, calling for the dissolution of the UN Security Council, as it is considered merely a tool of crime that can be bribed on the orders of the united states.
The committee declared, “The four islands of the archipelago must be sunk by the Juche nuclear bomb, Japan is no longer needed to be near North Korea”, according to the North Korean KCNA official news agency.
Junche’s own name is derived from the North Korean ruling ideology that combines Marxism and extremist nationalism expressed by country founder Kim Il Sung, the grandfather of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
The impact of the statement on the economy was the strengthening Japanese Nikkei Stock Index and the dollar and yen, but analysts said it was more due to the release of some Chinese economic indicators.
However, South Korean currency has decreased at the same time, this is due to domestic financial problems.
In response, South Korean President Moon Jae In still disagrees with the country’s nuclear program, either by self-development or the re-emergence of US tactical weapons that had been withdrawn in the early 1990s.
Moon argued that, “Having a nuclear weapon of its own in response to North Korea, peace on the Korean peninsula will not be achieved, this only leads to a nuclear arms race in northeast Asia,” Moon said in an interview with CNN.
In line with that thought, the Unification Ministry of Korea Selaan plans to provide assistance to infants and pregnant women in North Korea for $ 8 million through U.N. World Food Program and UNICEF.
The ministry explained that it is necessary to separate humanitarian aid from politics. This is the first humanitarian aid in North Korea since January 2016.
The North’s latest threats also singled out Japan for “dancing to the tune” of the United States, an apparent not-for-be-condoned crime against the people “, an apparent reference to Japan’s wartime aggression.
The latter threat also mentions Japan to “suitably dance” the United States, saying it should not be forgiven for not offering a sincere apology for “a crime our people can not deny”, a rationale referring to the aggression of the Japanese war.
It added that South Korea is “a traitor and a dogs” of the United States
Japan criticized North Korea’s statement aloud.
Through his Cabinet Secretary, Yoshihide Suga gave a statement to reporters that, “This announcement is very provocative and terrible.This is a real action that can increase regional tension and utterly intolerable.”
On the sidelines of his visit to India, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called for strict enforcement of UN Security Council resolutions, that the world must compel a change.
