North Korea has warned that nuclear war ‘may break out any moment’ amid claims it is developing a missile that can reach the East coast of the US.

Pyongyang said the ‘entire US mainland is within our firing range’ and threatened ‘severe punishment’ for America if it ‘dares to invade out sacred territory’.

The chilling statement comes as a North Korean official claimed the secretive nation was building a rocket capable of travelling more than 6,000 miles.

The new missile would be capable of reaching ‘all the way to the East coast’ of the US, one of Kim Jong-un’s officials claimed.

The official told CNN Pyongyang was not ruling out diplomacy, but that beforehand, ‘we want to send a clear message that the DPRK has a reliable defensive and offensive capability to counter any aggression from the United States’.

It comes after North Korea’s deputy UN ambassador warned yesterday that the situation on the Korean peninsula ‘has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment.’

Kim In Ryong told the U.N. General Assembly’s disarmament committee that North Korea is the only country in the world that has been subjected to ‘such an extreme and direct nuclear threat’ from the United States since the 1970s – and said the country has the right to possess nuclear weapons in self-defense.

He pointed to large-scale military exercises every year using ‘nuclear assets’ and said what is more dangerous is what he called a US plan to stage a ‘secret operation aimed at the removal of our supreme leadership.’

This year, Kim said, North Korea completed its ‘state nuclear force and thus became the full-fledged nuclear power which possesses the delivery means of various ranges, including the atomic bomb, H-bomb and intercontinental ballistic rockets.’
