The DPRK poses a grave threat to its neighbors, and if not contained, and for the wider region, including Australia. Such statement in conversation with journalists was made by the head of the Australian foreign Minister, Julie Bishop. Also foreign Minister expressed the view that instead of an arms race, the North Korean regime should work to improve the status “of its long-suffering people.”
Earlier it was reported that North Korea threatened Australia with a nuclear strike if the Australian authorities in relation to North Korea will follow the political course of the United States. A day earlier, the North Korean foreign Ministry condemned the “blindly copying the US policy of” Australia.
