North Korea Warns Australia: U.S. Military Alliance a ‘Suicidal Act’

Australia’s decision to support the U.S. in any possible future military conflict with North Korea has been called a “suicidal act” by Pyongyang.

The official North Korea news agency KCNA noted that the Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, had vowed his country’s military would fight alongside the U.S. if the latter was attacked by North Korea.

As Breitbart News reported, Mr. Turnbull made his call earlier this month after North Korea threatened a nuclear attack against the strategic American territory of Guam in the Pacific. He told an Australian radio network, “America stands by its allies, including Australia of course, and we stand by the United States.

“So be very, very clear on that. If there’s an attack on the US, the ANZUS Treaty would be invoked and Australia would come to the aid of the United States, as America would come to our aid if we were attacked.”

The ANZUS Treaty binds the U.S., Australia and New Zealand together in a defense pact covering military matters in the Pacific Ocean region. It provides that an armed attack on any of the three parties would be dangerous to the others, and that each should act to meet the common threat.

Citing an unnamed official from the North Korean foreign ministry, KCNA said Mr. Turnbull’s show of unqualified support for Washington, coupled with Australia’s participation in upcoming military drills in South Korea, had left the country open to unspecified “counter-measures of justice” by North Korea.
