North Korea warns of ‘nuclear crisis’ in rare comments at UN Security Council

Ambassador Kim Song accuses US of pushing tensions to the brink at meeting convened after DPRK fires solid-fuel ICBM

DPRK Ambassador Kim Song placed the blame solely on the U.S. for the current friction, warning that it was up to Washington to decide whether an “extreme situation” will occur.
