North Korea threatens US with its ‘cannons’ after Trump announces security strategy
North Korea lashed out at the U.S. on Friday, days after President Trump put forward his national security strategy in which he warned that the U.S. was ready to respond to threats from Pyongyang with "overwhelming force,'' The Hill reports.
A spokesman for North Korea's foreign ministry accused Trump of openly proclaiming Washington's intention of taking military action against the isolated Asian country, and threatened to retaliate with "cannons."
"As the U.S. set its diplomatic and security policy at crushing us militarily and is publicly aiming a sword at us, we will make the U.S. bitterly regret its strategy with our cannons," the spokesman said, according to North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency.
