The White house has denied declaring war on North Korea

Earlier on September 25, foreign Minister of the DPRK ri Yong Ho said that the US President, Donald trump declared war on North Korea. “Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have the full right to take countermeasures, including the right to shoot down U.S. strategic bombers, even if they are not in the airspace of our country,” warned the foreign Minister of the Republic.
Earlier, on September 23, Lee Yong Ho, speaking at a session of the UN General Assembly, said that North Korea’s possession of nuclear weapons is a means of self-defense. “We have absolutely no intention to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against countries that have not joined the military action by the US against the DPRK,” he said.
