North Korean Strikes– Australia’s Julie Bishop has replied North Korea’s threat of attacking the country for supporting US.
During Mike Pence’s visit to South Korea last week, Australia and China pledged their support and stand with the United States in fighting North Korea to ensure that their nuclear weapon productions are brought to a halt.
United States VP said all options were on the table with regards to the looming face off with the Asian country.
Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop said North Korea may also face a possible Australian sanction.
On that statement, North Korea took it up and slammed Australia for “spouting a string of rubbish against the DPRK over its entirely just steps for self-defense”.
Pyongyang went on to say that if Australia could be at risk of a nuclear strike if it does not withdraw its alliance with the United States,
“What she uttered can never be pardoned,”
“The present Government of Australia is blindly and zealously toeing the US line,”
“If Australia persists in following the US moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and remains a shock brigade of the US master, this will be a suicidal act of coming within the range of the nuclear strike of the strategic force of the DPRK,”
“The Australian foreign minister had better think twice about the consequences to be entailed by her reckless tongue-lashing before flattering the U.S.”
North Korea’s foreign ministry warned the Australian government to retrace their steps and reconsider their stand.
In response to the Asian country, Ms Bishop who is Australia’s Foreign Minister advised the Pyongyang to invest their energy and efforts in improving the welfare of the people instead of plotting ways of destroying lives.
Once again the minister condemned North Korea’s production and testing of nuclear weapons. She also mentioned that these weapons are a threat to Australia.
“North Korea’s threats of nuclear strikes against other nations further underlines the need for the regime to abandon its illegal nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs,”
“These present a grave threat to its neighbors and, if left unchecked, to the broader region including Australia,”
“The North Korean government should invest in the welfare of its long-suffering citizens, rather than weapons of mass destruction.”
North Korea has been defiantly pushing through with its illegal nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.
Together Australia and the United States calls out to China to mount pressures on North Korea to foresee their mission of peace. They want to achieve a future that is devoid of nuclear weapons.
In a recent official statement, China has also condemned the actions of North Korea as it violates the UN Security Council resolutions.
As it is the United States are currently making plans and mounting war ships is readiness for any North Korean strikes.
