North Korea's foreign minister accuses the US of declaring war
September 26 , 2017
North Korean foreign minister accused the US President Donald Trump of declaring war on North Korea. Ri Yong Ho, North Korean foreign minister, said that the US President's tweet that North Korea “won't be around much longer” amounted to a declaration of war. Further, the foreign minister said that US's declaration gives North Korea the right to shoot down US strategic bombers. However, such claims were refuted by the White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, who said that the US has not declared war on North Korea, calling the suggestion “absurd”.
