North Korea issues warning: Threat of nuclear test should be taken literally

The North Korean foreign minister's warning of a possible atmospheric nuclear test over the Pacific Ocean should be taken literally, a senior North Korean official told CNN in an interview aired today "The foreign minister is very well aware of the intentions of our supreme leader, so I think you should take his words literally," Ri Yong Pil, a senior diplomat in North Korea's Foreign Ministry, told CNN.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said last month Pyongyang may consider conducting "the most powerful detonation" of a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific Ocean amid rising tensions with the United States. The minister made the comment after U.S. President Donald Trump warned that the United States would "totally destroy" North Korea, which has been working to develop nuclear-tipped missiles capable of hitting America, if it threatened the United States. In spite of the bellicose rhetoric and repeated U.S. warnings that all options, including military ones, are on the table, White House officials say Trump is looking for a peaceful resolution of the standoff.
