The US nuclear-powered aircraft carrier is currently docked in the city of Busan, South Korea, after a two-day joint naval exercise with ships from South Korea and Japan earlier this week.
The continuous deployment of US strategic assets to the Korean Peninsula indicates the systematization of US attempts to unleash a nuclear war with the DPRK, which is ready to respond accordingly to an approaching nuclear attack, KCNA, North Korean state-run media, said in an unattributed commentary.
The media outlet noted that the visit of US aircraft carrier the USS Ronald Reagan to Busan and its participation in drills after the USA and its allies formed a nuclear advisory group means that Washington has begun to systematize and intensify nuclear attack attempts against the DPRK and unleashing a nuclear war is becoming a reality.
The continuous transfer of various strategic nuclear means by the US to the Korean Peninsula, where the possibility of a military conflict is ever present and the clouds of a possible outbreak of a nuclear war are thickening, is an open military provocation that is pushing the situation into an irreversible catastrophic state.
The nuclear doctrine of the DPRK, which has already been made public, makes it possible to go through the necessary procedures of action in case of a nuclear attack on our state or its approach.
The DPRK has repeatedly declared its intention to suppress and repel reckless attempts by the USA and its pawns to start a nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula and that even one bullet or shell in the present situation could trigger a nuclear confrontation.
The US regime must realize that its huge strategic assets have entered too dangerous waters. Our most powerful and immediate first strike will be carried out even against major US bases in and around the Korean Peninsula, not to mention the means of extended deterrence.
