North Korea Claims U.S. Declared War On North Korea

Sep 26, 2017

The war of words between President Trump and North Korea has now risen to the level of war, according to North Korea’s Foreign Minister. “Last week, Trump claimed that our leadership wouldn’t be around much longer, and hence, at last, he declared war on our country,” said foreign minister Ri Jong Ho. "Given the fact that this comes from someone who is currently holding the seat of the United States presidency, this is clearly a declaration of war. The U.N. charter stipulates individual member states’ rights to self-defense." The foreign minister said that North Korea reserved the right to shoot down planes near their border. "Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down the United States’ strategic bombers, even when they're not yet inside the air-space border of our country.”
