North Korea Receives Grave Warning Over Potential Nuke Test

Linkedin Share

As if the world hadn’t already stepped in it enough in 2022, we’re now dealing with the dainty despot of the DPRK and his nuclear fantasies to boot.

Kim Jong Un has long used his nation’s nuclear ambitions as a sort of negotiating tactic on the world’s stage.  By causing conflict and then rapidly capitulating, Kim has had a bit of a “salmon swimming upstream” approach to lessening sanctions, apparently unaware of the fate of that fish after their improbable journey.

And so begins another cycle of this hostage situation-like negotiation phase, in which North Korea begins to make efforts to antagonize the world, and the world claps back.

North Korea was warned on Wednesday that there would be an “unparalleled” response from the U.S., Japan and South Korea if it conducted a seventh nuclear test this year.

The warning comes not only after Pyongyang conducted a series of unannounced missile tests earlier this month, including a ballistic missile launched over Japan, but as the U.S. and its Asian allies fear it could be planning nuclear bomb testing for the first time since 2017, according to Reuters.

It would be difficult to misconstrue the meaning of the South’s statement.

“We agreed that an unparalleled scale of response would be necessary if North Korea pushes ahead with a seventh nuclear test,” South Korean First Vice Foreign Minister Cho Hyun-dong reportedly told a news conference in Tokyo Wednesday.

North Korea has been increasingly aligning itself with Russia, China, and other authoritarian states, raising concerns about the potential for a future global conflict.
