NORTH Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations warned on Monday that US military provocations were taking the world to the brink of nuclear war.

Ja Song Nam said in a letter to secretary-general Antonio Guterres that current military exercises by US and South Korean forces were creating “the worst-ever situation prevailing in and around the Korean peninsula.”

Along with the three US navy carrier battle groups deployed to the region, he said, the US had reactivated round-the-clock sorties by nuclear-capable B-52 strategic bombers “which existed during the cold war times.”

Mr Ja also accused the US of maintaining “a surprise strike posture with frequent flights of B-1B and B-2 formations to the airspace of South Korea.”

He added: “The large-scale nuclear war exercises and blackmails … make one conclude that the option we have taken was the right one and we should go along the way to the last” — a reference to Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons programme.
