North Korea says its ready for nuclear attack

U.S. May Launch Preemptive Strike Against North Korea: Report Air China cancels flights from Beijing to Pyongyang amid 'war' rumours

The Trump administration still has not ruled out military options in dealing with North Korea, according to the Times, and on Saturday, North Korean officials continued its tough talk against the United States.

A new intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM), which Pyongyang calls the Pukguksong-2, also appeared in the parade to commemorate the 105th birth anniversary of Kim Il-sung, the North's late founding leader and grandfather of Kim Jong-un.

NBC News reported, citing unnamed USA officials, that North Korea could carry out a nuclear test as early as this weekend.

North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests and a series of missile launches.

During the pomp and circumstance at Kim II Sung square, citizens showed their revolutionary fervour with choreographed performances while vehicles displaying North Korea's military arsenal rolled by.

The reports surfaced while the biggest ever joint military exercises between the US and South Korea are still ongoing.

The North Korean military issued a statement on Friday threatening to attack major United States military bases in South Korea, as well as the presidential Blue House, warning that it could annihilate those targets "within minutes". Many experts believe North Korea is on track to develop the technology necessary to launch an ICBM equipped with a nuclear warhead within the next few years, the AP reports.

A U.S. attack on a Syrian airfield this month raised questions about President Donald Trump's plans for reclusive North Korea, which has conducted several missile and nuclear tests in defiance of United Nations and unilateral sanctions.

Han warned that North Korea has a "powerful nuclear deterrent" in hand and "will not keep our arms crossed in the face of a US pre-emptive strike".

In his annual New Year's address, Kim said North Korea's preparations for an ICBM launch had "reached the final stage".

"Whatever comes from the United States politicians, if their words are created to overthrow the DPRK system and government, we will categorically reject them", he said.

"We will respond to an all-out war with an all-out war and a nuclear war with our style of nuclear attack", Choe Ryong Hae, a top North Korean officer, said.

North Korea showed off what appeared to be three long-range missiles, at least one apparently new.

The country's biggest national holiday called the "Day of the Sun" came amid growing speculation that Pyongyang could conduct its sixth nuclear test.

Both China, the North's sole major ally, and Russian Federation have urged restraint, with Beijing's foreign minister, Wang Yi, warning on Friday that "conflict could break out at any moment".

"One has the feeling that a conflict could break out at any moment", Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said after meeting his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault.
