North Korea suggests ‘war machine’ NATO will cause ‘Ukraine crisis’ in Asia

State media appears to suggest South Korea and Japan face invasion if they deepen ties with alliance

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) expansion will end in destruction and disaster, North Korean state media said Friday, slamming the alliance for its attempts to “dominate the world.”

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) published the critical statement under the name Kim Yu Chol, an international affairs analyst in Pyongyang, days after Finland became the 31st country to join the organization.
