North Korea's vice foreign minister says, "We will go to war" if the US chooses to provoke it.
Vice Minister Han Song Ryol spoke to The Associated Press in an exclusive interview in Pyongyang on Friday. He said the United States
and President Donald Trump were making trouble in the region, citing Trump's tweets and the US for moving an aircraft carrier into the region and for participating in its largest-ever joint military exercises with South Korea.
Han said that in the face of such actions, North Korea "will go to war if they choose." And it will continue developing its nuclear program and conduct its next nuclear test whenever its leaders see fit.
Han said: "We certainly will not keep our arms crossed in the face of a US pre-emptive strike."
