World War 3 fears as North Korea SNUBS US demands to denuclearise
FEARS the planet is on the brink of WW3 were triggered today after North Korea snubbed talks with the US.
North Korea locked horns wth the US after President Donald Trump demanded the hermit state denuclearise before negotiations begin.
But the communist nation rejected his precondition, stepping up fears of World War 3.
The spokesman for the foreign ministry of North Korea warned: “In decades-long history of the DPRK-US [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] talks, there had been no case at all where we sat with the US on any precondition and this will be the case in future too.
“The US attitude shown after we clarified our intention for DPRK-US dialogue compels us to only think that the US is not interred in resuming DPRK-US dialogue.”
The news comes the day after North Korea unleashed fury at Trump’s plans for joint military drills with South Korea, promising a “dark cloud of war” should he persist.
Pyongyang’s mouthpiece Korean Central News Agency said: “If the US finally holds joint military exercises while keeping sanctions on the DPRK, the DPRK will counter the US by its own mode of counteraction and the US will be made to own all responsibilities for the ensuing consequences.
“The US should clearly understand this and exercise prudence.
“During the Olympic closing ceremony, South Korean president Moon Jae-in announced a North Korean delegate said his country is willing to hold talks with the States.
Trump responded by saying they would only happen “under the right conditions”.
