Nato warns North Korea military action would have 'devastating consequences'

"It is working hard to fatten its munitions monopolies and create the imbalance of force and the military confrontation in certain regions through arms sales", the commentary read.

North Korea has said its possession of nuclear and missile technologies is non-negotiable as it is vital for it to defend itself against perceived and overt military threats from the United States.

A launch of a North Korean ballistic missile in May was timed for when Xi was to open a meeting in Beijing with leaders from almost 30 countries to promote his initiative of expanding links along and beyond ancient Silk Road trade routes.

"Trump called for total destruction of our state and people at the United Nations arena and continues to bring nuclear strategic assets into South Korea and its vicinity, pushing the situation on the peninsula to the brink of war", Rodong Sinmun said.

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 5 сентября 2017 г. The joint drills led by the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier come after hectic U.S. military hardware movements around the Korean peninsula in recent days.

An unnamed South Korean military official shared concerns with local Yonhap news agency that the North may respond to the upcoming war games with another missile launch. The foreign ministry revealed that they both hoped the visit will further strengthen the bilateral relationship and find ways to work more closely together to tackle North Korea.

In the most recent case on September 15, North Korea launched a ballistic missile, which flew over Japan before falling into the northern Pacific some 20 minutes after the launch.

The threat came a day after senior Australian officials expressed strong support for Washington during a trip to South Korea.

Most recently, Pyongyang rattled its "sword of justice" Friday by vowing to attack the U.S. territory of Guam with a "salvo of missiles," one day after stating that it will complete its nuclear weapons program no matter how much worldwide pressure the nation faces.

Last month, Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters that the intensifying war rhetoric against Pyongyang will bring nothing but "global, planetary catastrophe and a huge loss of human life".
