Europe could be within reach of a nuclear missile attack from North Korea sooner than expected.

France’s defence minister Florence Parly issued the stark warning on Tuesday during a speech to the French military, where she urged the potential threat to be taken seriously.

‘The scenario of an escalation towards a major conflict can not be discarded,’ said Ms Parly.

‘Europe risks being within range of [North Korean President] Kim Jong-Un’s missiles sooner than expected,’ she said.

The statement follows Russian President Vladimir Putin’s condemnation of the rogue state’s detonation of a hydrogen bomb on Sunday. He warned the escalating crisis ‘could lead to a global, planetary catastrophe’.

Putin urged all parties to avoid ‘military hysteria’, instead advising them to approach the situation with peaceful talks to avoid ‘a great number of victims’, during a BRICS summit in Xiamen.

His comments came after North Korea reportedly moved an intercontinental ballistic missile to its coast amid warnings from the US it is ‘begging for war’.

However, a top North Korean diplomat dismissed the international outcry over his country’s latest nuclear weapons test at UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament, according to Reuters.

Instead, Han Tae Song, ambassador of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the United Nations in Geneva, said North Korea is prepared to send ‘more gift packages’ to the US.

‘The recent self-defence measures by my country DPRK, are a ‘gift package’ addressed to none other than the US,” said Han.

In a tweet posted last night, Donald Trump said: ‘I am allowing Japan and South Korea to buy a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated military equipment from the United States.’
