North Korea 'will NEVER give up nukes if United States breaks Iran deal'

North Korea 'will NEVER give up nukes if United States breaks Iran deal'

North Korea did not follow through on its threat to fire ballistic missiles toward Guam, but the escalating tensions have sparked concerns about a possible military conflict on the Korean Peninsula, which remains technically in a state of war as the bloody 1950 53 Korean War ended in a truce, not a formal peace treaty.

Its actions were in defiance of multiple sets of United Nations sanctions, prompting US President Donald Trump to threaten military action against the regime.

The compromised documents include wartime contingency plans drawn up by the US and South Korea and also include reports to the allies' senior commanders, Rhee Cheol-hee, a South Korean lawmaker was quoted as saying BBC Tuesday.

Mr Trump tweeted on Sunday that only "one thing would work" to stop North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's regime from further developing a nuclear arsenal aimed at hitting the U.S. mainland. Almost two million South Koreans visited the spot over a decade, according to South Korean government figures.

The South Korean defence ministry has so far refused to comment about the allegation.


The briefing by his defence secretary James Mattis and top military officer General Joseph Dunford "focussed on a range of options to respond to any form of North Korean aggression or, if necessary, to prevent North Korea from threatening the United States and its allies with nuclear weapons", according to a brief statement from the White House.

The B-1Bs also conducted exercises with Japan's Air Force in what the U.S. statement called a "sequenced bilateral mission".

Analysts believed such a test could take place on Tuesday-which could be Monday in the USA due to the time difference-marking the founding of North Korea's communist Worker's Party.

He added that North Korea would not rule out "the use of the most extreme measures in response".

While Australia underscores maximum diplomatic and economic pressure when dealing with North Korea issues, Defense Minister Marise Payne also stressed Canberra will continue to work with Seoul and Washington highlighting the key is supporting regional security. Previously, North Korean hackers were suspected of having a hand in launching cyberattacks against South Korea's air force and military.
