North Korea: latest war mongering

Western nations, including Britain, are deciding whether to pull diplomats out of North Korea after being told that their safety  cannot be guaranteed beyond Wednesday. Whitehall has been told it should consider evacuating its embassy in Pyongyang.

The Foreign Office last night said it had ‘no immediate plans to withdraw’ Britain’s embassy in Pyongyang and condemned ‘provocations’ by the North Korean regime. The US does not have an embassy in Pyongyang. Russia said yesterday that it was considering airlifting its workers out of the country and had been in discussions with China – North Korea’s closest ally.

The warning came just a day after David Cameron claimed that Kim Jong-un’s military have weapons which could threaten the UK. Mr Cameron said: ‘North Korea does now have missile technology that is able to reach, as they put it, the whole of the United States. ‘If they are able to reach the whole of the United States they can reach Europe too, they can reach us too. That is a real concern.’
