The foreign ministry said the U.S. and South Korea have created “a state of nuclear war.”
Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min Seok described the current North Korean alert as the highest-level combat posture.
According to Bloomberg,
“North Korea may launch a limited, localized attack with a clear political purpose to highlight the 60th anniversary of the truce agreement this year and win international recognition as a nuclear power,” said Kim Yeon Su, a professor at the state-run Korea National Defense University in Seoul.

United States has announced that it takes the threat by Kim Jong Un serious.
