NYT: U.S. watches for a "lethal military action" by North Korea

Kim Jong-un

On the conviction of the American authorities, the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un may soon carry out some kind of "deadly action" against South Korea. This became a cause of concern in official Washington.

North Korea may stage a "lethal military action"

The American edition of the New York Times learned about it from its insiders.

The publication's anonymous sources warn that Kim Jong-un's new tougher rhetoric is part of a series of provocations and should be taken seriously.

Even though Washington does not yet see an immediate risk of a full-scale war on the Korean Peninsula.

Kim can, for example, strike South Korean positions with artillery, as was the case in 2010. Military personnel on both sides were then killed, as well as civilians in the South, but both militaries soon ceased fire.

The aggressive mood of the North Korean dictator became evident after a series of cruise missile launches, testing of new weapons, as well as rejection of the idea of peaceful reunification with South Korea.

Moreover, insiders claim that Kim Jong-un is "inspiring" to strengthen cooperation with Putin's team.

At the same time, American agencies do not yet see signs that the DPRK is preparing for a major war, in particular due to the decision to transfer artillery ammunition and ballistic missiles to the Russian Federation.

North Korea may transfer even more ballistics to Russia

Recently, it also became known that the USA and the EU are worried about the possible increase in the supply of North Korean missiles and ammunition to Russia.

Russia has increased cooperation with North Korea after a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022. It is known that Pyongyang handed Moscow artillery shells and ballistic missiles that were already used for attacks on Ukrainian cities.

According to American officials, the nature of the security threat from North Korea may "dramatically change" in the coming decade as a result of its cooperation with Russia.
