North Korea has cautioned Australia it could be struck with nuclear weapons if it continues to “blindly” follow the United states.
The comments came after Foreign Minister Julie Bishop earlier this week said on the ABC’s AM program that North Korea’s nuclear weapons plan posed a “serious threat” to Australia unless it was halted by the international community.
A spokesman to the North Korean Foreign Ministry accused Australia with “spouting a string of rubbish” concerning the isolated regime, and also cautioned against following the US.
“The current Government of Australia is thoughtlessly and zealously toeing the United states line,” the spokesman stated.
“If Australia continues in following the US’ moves to isolate and also stifle North Korea … this may be a suicidal act of coming inside the variety of the nuclear strike of the tactical force of Northern Korea.”
This North Korean Foreign Ministry additionally immediately addressed Ms Bishop’s interview, warning she had “better think twice about the implications to be entailed by her reckless tongue-lashing before flattering this US”.
