News Story: DPRK warns U.S. against further military gambling

PYONGYANG, July 7 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Friday warned the United States against further resorting to military gambling.

A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee said in a statement that "the U.S. Defense Department is loudly trumpeting a military attack option" advocated by U.S. President Donald Trump to cope with the north's "provocations."

The DPRK said that the U.S. promise that it would not invade "is a whopping lie and a trick to cover up its sinister intention to put its war ambitions into practice through a surprise attack," said the spokesman.

A spokesman for the DPRK Ministry of Foreign Affairs also said Friday that the launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Tuesday by Pyongyang is a "victory achieved by the army and people of the DPRK in their more than half-a-century long anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. showdown."
