North Korea on missile cruiser deployment to Japan: U.S. 'will burn'

Recommended Posts

SEOUL, June 29 (UPI) -- North Korea threatened the United States on Monday after a guided missile cruiser arrived at Yokosuka Naval Base.

Pyongyang's state-controlled media outlet KCNA said the Aegis cruiser USS Chancellorsville was being deployed in Japan in response to North Korea's nuclear threat, Yonhap reported.

The move was not welcomed by North Korea, and KCNA said in a statement the United States had "better heed past warnings."

"The cloud of flames of a nuclear war is finally gathering en masse," KCNA stated. "But the U.S. should heed the truth: We already have strategy and tactical missiles capable of a strong offense."

South Korean news network YTN reported KCNA also denounced U.S. plans to dispatch four drones to Misawa Air Base in Japan in July.
