North Korea Issues Warning to U.S. After Biden Says Nuclear Program Presents Global Threat

HeadlineMay 03, 2021

North Korea has warned the U.S. of a “very grave situation” over President Biden’s stance on its nuclear weapons program. During an address to Congress last week, Biden called North Korea’s and Iran’s nuclear programs “serious threats” to U.S. and global security. North Korea also fired back after the State Department condemned its human rights record. North Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs wrote, “The U.S., where innocent people lose their lives to social inequality and racism every day, where 580,000 people died of novel coronavirus, is itself a human rights wasteland.” The White House signaled Friday it is open to diplomatic relations with North Korea.
