NORTH Korea has deployed two anti-ship cruise missiles onto a patrol boat as tensions on the peninsula reach breaking point.

The alarming activity was detected by US spy planes, and indicated the barbaric regime is continuing to pursue its missile programme.

Pyongyang has loaded two Stormpetrel anti-ship cruise missiles onto a Wonsan guided-missile patrol boat at Toejo Dong, on the country’s east coast.

It is the first time since 2014 these types of weapons have been deployed to ships.

The aggressive action signals despotic leader Kim Jong-un is ignoring threats and sanctions from the West, at whatever cost.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said: “The best signal that North Korea could give us that they’re prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches.”

The regime has conducted multiple missile launches – with both successes and failures – over the past 18 months.

Kim Jong-un has flagrantly ignored escalating sanctions slapped on it by the UN and the West, instead issuing increasing threats against Donald Trump and the USA.

The US has hit back testing its own anti-ICBM capabilities.

The Pentagon successfully shot down an ICBM – the same type of missiles North Korea is perfecting – in a public show of strength in May.

A US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said: “North Korea is not showing any evidence it plans to halt its missile tests.
