Description

The United States has a clear message to North Korea following its recent military provocation. Washington′s defense chief says Pyongyang should consider the military power of the U.S. and its allies if it chooses to act out again. Kim Ji-yeon reports. U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter warned North Korea Tuesday that it would have no chance if it attacks South Korea. In a webcast event with U.S. troops stationed around the world,... Carter said the North should understand the consequences of any provocation, and noted the real possibility of war breaking out on the Korean peninsula. ″We need to be ready, we need to make sure that North Koreans always understand that any provocation with them will be dealt with and that they stand no chance of defeating us and our allies in South Korea... It′s probably the single place in the world where war could erupt at the snap of our fingers.″ Carter′s remarks come a little over a week after inter-Korean tensions flared to levels unseen in years. The two Koreas ended a military standoff that triggered an exchange of artillery fire after Seoul reinstated its propaganda broadcasts in retaliation for the North′s landmine blasts that seriously wounded two South Korean soldiers. Seoul and Pyongyang are technically still at war since the Korean War ended in a truce rather than a peace treaty. Kim Ji-yeon, Arirang News.
