North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Pak Kil Yon addressing Monday the final session of the U.N. General Assembly’s annual high-level meeting, beat out at the United States warning that its "hostile" policy has left the Korean peninsula a spark away from a nuclear war.
Pak said the Koreas have become "the world's most dangerous hotspot" and swore to use the North's "mighty" military restriction against any "reckless provocations."
Pak was quoted as saying, "The only way to prevent war and ensure lasting peace on the Korean peninsula is to put an end to the U.S. hostile policy towards the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The U.S. State Department had no comment on the speech.
A great deal of his speech centered on North Korea's endless state of war with the United States more than 60 years after the 1950-53 Korean War ended with a truce but no peace treaty.
At the end the North Korean minister did say his government will join hands with anyone who truly wants the reunification of the North and South and reconciliation without intervention from outside forces.
