Military chiefs have thrown down the gauntlet on Kim Jong-un as the war of words between Washington and Pyongyang appears to reach boiling point.

Just hours after being accused of “declaring war”, US officials reiterated that Mr Trump will be briefed and prepared for any eventuality.

It makes the prospect of World War 3 increasingly likely as the latest move could pave the way for military intervention in the Korean peninsula.

“If North Korea does not stop their provocative actions, you know, we will make sure that we provide options to the President to deal with North Korea,” Pentagon spokesman Colonel Robert Manning said.

It comes after Kim’s foreign minister Ri Yong Ho described the President’s recent comments as “clearly a declaration of war”.

He added that the North is capable of shooting down US strategic bombers even if they are not in the country’s air space.

But the United Nations called for calm as the situation appears to spiral out of control.

“Fiery talk can lead to fatal misunderstandings,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

“The only solution for this is a political solution.”
