North Korea has threatened the US with a ‘horrible nuclear strike’ and ‘miserable and final ruin’ after the Stalinist dictatorship was subject to further sanctions.

It comes amid high tensions on the Korean peninsula after Pyongyang carried out its sixth nuclear test and fired two missiles over Japan in the space of less than a month.

As a response, Japan today deployed an additional missile defence system on its northern island of Hokkaido while yesterday the US and South Korea held live-fire bombing drills using advanced aircraft.

But North Korea state newspaper Rodong Sinmun has claimed its nuclear programme is merely a ‘deterrence’ system designed for self-defence.

In a ranting diatribe, the newspaper said that in pursuing further sanctions the US was guilty of ‘shameful logic and a brigandish deed to justify its crimes against peace on the Korean Peninsula’.

But in a threat to the global powers opposed to the autocracy, it also said: ‘It is now in full readiness to destroy the enemies’ bases with its resolute and preemptive strike if they show any slight sign of provocation.

‘In case the US opts for confrontation and war at last, defying the strategic position of the DPRK, nuclear power of Juche [the country’s state ideology] and a world military giant, it will meet horrible nuclear strike and miserable and final ruin.’

The paper also ranted against the attempt to ‘blockade to stifle’ the country with UN sanctions.

It added: ‘The DPRK has had access to everything and gained everything it could do despite the harshest sanctions and blockade by the hostile forces, and it is a daydream to calculate that the DPRK can be shaken to change its attitude in face of the new “sanctions”.

‘The enemies’ reckless and ridiculous sanctions, pressure, threat and blackmail will offer an opportunity to the DPRK to bolster up its deterrence, while bring bitterer [sic] disgrace to them.’
