The North Korean media warned America on Tuesday that the U.S.’s “military provocations” will push the Korean peninsula “close to nuclear war.”

“Due to the U.S. military provocations that are becoming more explicit day by day, the situation in the Korean peninsula that is already sensitive is being driven to a point close to nuclear war,” a North Korean news anchor warned via the media as per a translation done by Reuters.

A North Korean newspaper added that the nation was “waiting for the moment it will reduce the whole of the U.S. mainland to ruins.”

The North Korean threat emerged from the state-controlled KCNA news agency just hours after the United States flew two B-1B bombers in training drills with South Korean and Japanese military.
