World War 3 (WW3) is near, officials in China have warned, as North Korea prepares for yet another nuclear missile test – and the US and Donald Trump is poised to intervene.
Tensions have been growing ever since Mr Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase in response to a deadly gas attack believed to have been carried out on the orders of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.
After the US airstrikes in Syria, a spokesman for the North Korean Foreign Ministry’s Institute for Disarmament and Peace said in a statement:”The US introduces into the Korean peninsula, the world’s biggest hot spot, huge nuclear strategic assets, seriously threatening peace and security of the peninsula and pushing the situation there to the brink of a war.
“This has created a dangerous situation in which a thermo-nuclear war may break out any moment.”
Earlier this week, the US leader tweeted that North Korea was “looking for trouble”, and vowed to take on the hermit state alone if necessary as tensions near breaking point.
Pyongyang’s vice foreign minister Han Song Ryol said the situation on the Korean peninsula is now in a “vicious cycle” and also accused President Trump of “making trouble” with “aggressive” tweets.
