North Korea has warned to shoot down US Bombers after the US has “declared war” on the country. Ri Yong Ho, the foreign minister of North Korea stated how President Trump’s tweets are equivalent to a war threat and how Pyongyang has every right to take countermeasures which include shooting strategic bombers even if they are not in its airspace.
It all started with Trump and his reckless tweets
Time and again, Trump has stunned the world with his reckless tweets where he seems either too ignorant or too smart for his own good. It all started when Trump called North Korea President “Rocket Man on a Suicide Mission” and threatened to completely destroy North Korea.
Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!

In retaliation, Kim Jong-un called Trump a “mentally deranged US Dotard” and compared his speech to the sound of a barking dog.
On Saturday, after Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho gave his speech at the UN, Trump Tweeted:
“Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer!”
Foreign Minister asks the world to clearly remember U.S. first declared war on their country
The foreign minister addressed the reporters and condemned the President for his tweets and stated: “President Evil” is currently the US President and calling out Kim Jong-un “rocketman” and now tweeting how “North Korea won’t be around much longer” is a direct declaration of war.
He also stated how they will take all necessary countermeasures including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside but near the airspace border of the country.
“Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to take countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country.The question of who won’t be around much longer will be answered then.”

In a show of force, U.S. Air Force B1 Lancer flew east of North Korea. Colonel Robert Manning told the Associated Press how the operation was conducted in International airspace and over international waters and they have the right to fly where it is legally permissible.
Katina Adams, the State Spokesperson said, “No nation has the right to fire on other nations’ aircraft or ships in international airspace or waters.” She added with a statement that no war has been declared and U.S. is still seeking peaceful denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Restraint Request on Both Sides
United Nation members have requested restraint on both sides and avoiding rhetorical statements. Experts suggest the misunderstanding can lead to a war that no side can afford.
Stephane Dujarric, UN Spokesperson stated, “Fiery talk can lead to fatal misunderstandings”.
South Korean President has also requested both parties to solve their issues. The war could kill millions of people in Korean Peninsula leading to a catastrophe situation in Korea.
