WASHINGTON has sent a stark nuclear warning to despot Kim Jong Un and said North Korea would be “utterly destroyed” if war were to break out.
The strong rhetoric came from the USA’s ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.
North Korea tested another missile earlier this week and North Korea claimed it was it’s MOST POWERFUL nuke and said it was capable of reaching the entire US mainland.
Speaking at the UN, Haley said: “We have never sought war with North Korea, and still today we do not seek it.”
“If war does come, it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday.”
“And if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed.”
The tensions have been rising since September when North Korea tested a sixth nuke.
In September, Mr Trump said:
“The United States has great strength and patience,” the president told the U.N. “But if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”
He also called North Korea’s brutal dictator,: “Rocket Man” and added, “he is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime
