North Korea threatens U.S. with nuke attack
North Korean authorities sent out a barely-veiled threat against America, threatening to launch a nuclear attack "if the U.S. and other hostile forces" fail to put a halt to "hostile" foreign policy, various media reported Tuesday.
The regime said it's been working studiously to improve the "quality and quantity" of its nuclear weapons, and wouldn't hesitate to launch them against the United States "any time," Reuters reported.
North Korea's news service, KCNA, reported the statements of the atomic agency director: "All the nuclear facilities in Yongbyon including the uranium enrichment plant and 5 MW graphite-moderated reactor were rearranged, changed or readjusted and they started normal operation. If the U.S. and other hostile forces persistently seek their reckless hostile policy towards the DPRK and behave mischievously, the DPRK is fully ready to cope with them with nuclear weapons any time."
DPRK stands for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
The threats come a day after North Korea's space agency announced a new satellite for launch.
