North Korea Threatens ‘Pre-Emptive Nuclear Strike’ Against US, South Korea

North Korea has threatened to launch a “pre-emptive nuclear strike” against the United States and South Korea if the countries conduct joint military drills scheduled to start Monday, Agence France-Presse reported Sunday.

The threat comes days after the United Nations Security Council voted to increase sanctions against the country in an attempt to limit its nuclear weapons program. Following that vote, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said his country's nuclear warheads “need to be ready for use at any time.”
