North Korea again threatens USA with war, but the Pentagon asks the North Korean leader not to rattle the mood.
Several thousand North Koreans showed up in the capital Pyongyang to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Communist Party and to pay tribute to the leader Kim Jong-Un.
During his speech to the crowds on Saturday, Kim Jong-un went out against the United States.
- We can safely say that our party has revolutionary weapons and we are ready for any war the US imperialists start, said Kim Jong-un in the speech according to CNBC.
North Korea also showed its new long-range missiles, which are equipped with nuclear warheads, the news agency AFP reports.
Experts believe the missiles have long enough range to reach the United States.
The White House has not yet commented on Jong-uns last statement. Pentagon asks however North Korea not to provoke.
- We're in contact with our allies in South Korea, who we are obliged to defend, says Pentagon official Bill Urban to CNBC.
- Provocative statements in recent months has led to increased tensions and we urge Pyongyang to refrain from actions and rhetoric that threatens the peace and security in the Korean peninsula.
North Korea finished the celebration on Sunday with music and dance performances that included a scene with young children who caught butterflies - only to be killed in US bombings, writes AFP.
