Some 20,000 South Koreans would die every day in the event of a US-North Korean war, according to alleged calculations made by the Pentagon.

The claim was made by a retired Air Force general who said the figure was estimated based on a conventional war scenario and did not include potential use of nuclear weapons.

Earlier today, South Korea and China urged the United States to help dial down tensions with the North after Pyongyang accused President Donald Trump of declaring war.

Yesterday, North Korea’s Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho made the shock claim that Trump had declared war on North Korea, a statement branded ‘absurd’ by the White House.

When playing out hypothetical war scenarios in case armed conflict were to break out, the Pentagon ‘estimated the potential number of dead in South Korea at 20,000 each day’, retired general Rob Givens told the LA Times.

Givens, who spent four years stationed in Korea, added that the figures did not take into account potential use of nuclear weapons by Pyongyang.

‘There is only one way that this war ends. With North Korea’s defeat — but at what cost?,’ Givens said.

This morning, a spokesman for China’s Foreign Ministry pleaded with both the US and Pyongyang to ‘realise that resorting to military force will never be a viable way to resolve the peninsula issue and their own concerns, adding that ‘War on the peninsula will have no winner.’
