As North Korea tried to position itself as a nuclear state force, the communist regime earned the ire of the international community. But Kim Jong-un confidently went on with his bluster after Russia gave his regime a new internet link. Now the rogue state made another threat to Japan.

Following his speech at the UNGA, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe received harsh criticisms from North Korea through its state-run news agency, KCNA. The North labeled Abe a “headless chicken” after the Japanese prime minister sought members of the United Nations to pressure Kim’s regime to completely stop its nuclear weapons development.

The North’s leader also threatened Japan with a nuclear attack, Asia Times reported.

Mail Online reports that the recent North Korean threat followed the warnings of Itsunori Onodera, the defense minister of Japan, about the possibility of another missile test on October 10.

A ghastly threat on Japan

During the past two months, Kim Jong-un’s regime launched two missiles that flew across Japanese territory. North Korea’s most recent missile launch had an altitude of about 770 kilometers over a distance of around 3700 km, positioning it in range of the Island of Guam, a US military base. The missile flew for about 19 minutes across Japanese territory. After that, the rogue nation began threatening to reduce the United States to “ashes and darkness” and “sink” Japan.

According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), North Korea proclaimed that the Japanese nation’s existence was no longer necessary, Fox News reported. The state-run news agency added that the four islands of the archipelago needed to be totally sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of North Korea.

Japan boosts its defense

The Japanese government condemned the nuclear threats of Kim Jong-un. One top government official called it provocative and outrageous. In any case, Japan has already prepared its military for any eventuality.

Furthermore, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sought a public mandate on his stricter defense policies as well as his diplomatic policies in addressing the unrelentingly growing threats from Kim Jong-un’s regime.

Confident of his approval ratings, Abe dissolved the lower house of the parliament of Japan for a snap election on October 22.

Additionally, KCNA made a horrible announcement that Japan would become the first victim of a nuclear catastrophe. The Japanese would be sacrificed because of the political ambition of some militarist reactionaries, the state-run news agency concluded.
