(ETH) – Kim Jong Un and North Korea have just warned that the United States will face “a very grave situation” and stated that President Joe Biden has “made a big blunder” regarding his recent speech by calling North Korea a security threat.
The threat is regarding Last week, when Joe Biden, in his first address to Congress, called North Korea and Iran’s nuclear programs “serious threats” to American and world security and went further to say that he’ll work with allies to address those problems through diplomacy and stern deterrence.

In March, he reportedly conducted short-range ballistic missile tests for the first time in 12 months, though he still maintains a moratorium on bigger weapons launches.
“If Pyongyang agrees to working-level talks, the starting point of negotiations would be a freeze of North Korean testing and development of nuclear capabilities and delivery systems,” Leif-Eric Easley, a professor at Ewha University in Seoul, said. “If, on the other hand, Kim shuns diplomacy and opts for provocative tests, Washington will likely
