US has declared war on us - North Korea

North Korea’s foreign minister says US President Donald Trump has declared war on the country.

Ri Yong Ho told reporters in New York that Pyongyang reserves the right to take counter-measures, including shooting down US strategic bombers even if they are not in the country’s air space.

“The whole world should clearly remember it was the US who first declared war on our country,” he said.

“Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make counter-measures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers when they are not inside the airspace border of our country.”
