North Korea Promises Nuclear Bombs to 'Anyone Willing to Attack the US'
Kim Jong-un vows to supple nukes to anyone who want to bomb the United States
North Korea has vowed to supply nuclear weapons to any country that is willing to use them to bomb the United States.
Kim Jong-un has promised to sell its technology to "aspiring nuclear powers" if the so long as they use them to attack the US, a defense expert has warned.
In a statement from the North Korean regime via the state-controlled news network, the hermit nation has said "anyone" who they share the common enemy with.
The warning comes as President Donald Trump attempted to increase pressure on the rogue state after it refused to shut down its nuclear development programme.
Former US ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton warned that if the president doesn't act soon, there could soon be more countries with nuclear capabilities, ready to trigger World War III.
Mr. Bolton said in a statement:
“The President was right in the September speech to the UN General Assembly when he said that denuclearization is the only way forward.
“The north is never going to give up its nuclear weapons voluntarily, we’ve seen that over 25 years.
“I think the President has tried to put pressure on China, they have not responded, so we are getting down to some pretty unattractive options.
“But I think it is important that the President makes the case that a North Korea with nuclear weapons is a threat to the United States, Japan, others in the region and a threat globally because they will sell any of this technology to other aspiring nuclear powers for hard currency.”
Bolton also told Fox Business that the United States was “running out of time” in putting a stop to Kim Jong-un as the regime develops its nuclear arsenal.
The warning comes as East Asia expert and author of 'Nuclear Showdown', Gordon Chang, said that three nations could be ready to join Kim Jong-un in a war against the US.
He said: “If we strike North Korea first, you can see China cause trouble in the South China Sea. You can see Russia go after the Baltics. The Iranians will do something.
“We could see Asia being embroiled on both sides. It’s close to a world war. This thing could spread very fast and that’s the real danger here.
“This can spread to the US homeland because the Chinese and the Russians could actually get into a nuclear exchange with the United States. I’m not saying it’s going to happen but I’m saying that’s a possibility.”
The United Nations placed harsh sanctions on North Korea after its missile testing. The resolution seeks to ban nearly 90 percent of refined petroleum product exports to North Korea.
But fears have been raised that China has not been complying with the sanctions. China is considered to be Pyongyang's only formal ally in the region due to a long-established mutual support treaty which is up for renewal in 2021.
The North Korea foreign ministry responded to the UN sanctions and branded them an “act of war”.
