The Korean Peninsula is on the “brink of nuclear war” because of the US’s “irresponsible actions”. North Korea’s representative to the United Nations warned about this on Tuesday.

The “reckless” actions and “continued hysteria of the United States and its allies in a nuclear conflict (…) are pushing the Korean Peninsula to a military situation on the brink of nuclear war,” UN Ambassador Kim Song said in the speech. UN
He slammed the policies of Americans and Northeast Asian countries, calling it a “dangerous situation caused by America trying to perfect its hegemonic ambitions by any means necessary and overestimating its own power.” The United States and South Korea held the region’s largest-ever military drills in May.
The representative said South Korea also accepts some responsibility and tries to blame the “lash of nuclear war” on Pyongyang.
North Korea often says that South Korea and the United States are on the brink of an impending nuclear war. According to Kim Song, his country has no choice but to quickly arm itself because of the threatening situation Washington and Seoul have created, as a matter of self-defense. The Americans and South Koreans believe that North Korea is taking an aggressive and provocative approach with its ongoing missile tests. Dictator Kim Jong-un recently visited Russia, presumably to conclude an arms deal.

South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol gave a speech at a military parade on Tuesday and also discussed the possibility of North Korea using nuclear weapons. In that case, he warned that his country would work with the United States to end Kim Jong-un’s rule.
On the same day, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres denounced the “absolute madness” of the “nuclear arms race in the making” in the General Assembly. He called for “turning the tide”. “The need is so great (…) that the number of nuclear weapons may increase for the first time in decades,” Guterres said, adding that commitments to disarmament and non-proliferation are weakening globally.
