US car­ri­ers fu­elling ten­sions: N Korea

Muscat Daily - - WORLD -

North Korea warned at the United Na­tions on Mon­day that the de­ploy­ment of three US air­craft car­ri­ers in joint navy drills with South Korea was fu­elling ten­sions that could lead to nu­clear war. North Korea’s Am­bas­sador Ja Song Nam said in a let­ter to UN Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral An­to­nio Guter­res that this was ‘the worst ever sit­u­a­tion pre­vail­ing in and around the Korean penin­sula’. The first such de­ploy­ment of three US car­ri­ers since 2007 ‘is mak­ing it im­pos­si­ble to pre­dict when nu­clear war breaks out due to the US nu­clear war equip­ment’ tak­ing up a ‘strike pos­ture’, wrote the am­bas­sador.
