President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un could stumble into a nuclear war of “unprecedented scale”, warned Vladimir Putin’s top diplomat Oleg Burmistrov.
Russia’s so-called ambassador-at-large predicted the start of a war could be “unprovoked” and said the US it is “playing with fire” in goading North Korea.
Moscow has repeatedly called for calm in the region as Trump and Kim’s fiery war of words stoked the conflict to horrifying new heights in recent months.
Burmistrov called on the world to do “everything possible” to prevent the war that would spiral into the first use of nuclear weapons since World War 2.
North Korea is feared to be plotting another missile test before the end of the year – with US “missile sniffer” plane Cobra Ball taking flight yesterday amid Kim’s threats.
Burmistrov told Sputnik: “[It could be] the catastrophe of the scale, never before seen in human history.
“We are talking not only about a major military conflict but also about a conflict that potentially has a nuclear component.
“Now we are in the face of a major military conflict, which can become a reality if the military solution plan is implemented.
“And we need to do everything possible to prevent this from happening.”
Putin’s top man suggested US war drills in the region may be “testing” North Korea and looking for grounds to impose a total economic blockade on Pyongyang.
He described the region as a "powder keg" as military forces continue to march into the Korean Peninsula.
The ambassador added: “The situation on the Korean Peninsula is characterised by an unprecedented level of tension, there is a growing danger of slipping into an armed conflict, unprovoked, but which may begin due to accidental circumstances.”
Burmistrov has previously visited Pyongyang to discuss the nuclear crisis and has also hosted meetings with North Korean officials in Moscow.
This week, Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov met with US secretary of state Rex Tillerson to discuss North Korea.
Despite separate tensions between Moscow and Washington, the two came to an agreement that they would “never accept” a nuclear-armed Kim.
North Korea is believed to be gearing up to launch a space rocket, which experts have warned could be a cover for another weapons test.
Kim should be expected to carry out at least one more launch before the end of the year, North Korea expert Michael Madden told Daily Star Online.
Pyongyang is believed to have long-term ambitions to launch a nuclear missile into the heart of the Pacific.
The World had 65 years to do something about North Korea, no one did diddly-squat!
Now, North Korea has openly defied the will of the entire world by developing nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them.
If this is not stopped, then who is stop stop ANYONE ELSE from doing the same?
Can you imagine North Korea selling its nuke technology to countries like Iran? How about selling it to terror groups?
This situation is rapidly coming to an end and the end is going to be a major war; war the likes of which no one in the US has ever seen. We WILL be attacked here in the continental U.S. Americans and our cities WILL be blown up.
All of this WILL begin before March 20, 2018.
For months, I have been screaming from the rooftops trying to get my fellow Americans to prepare. Few, if any, took any action. Many of them will die for their choice to do nothing.
It is obvious that many Americans are in denial about this.
Just look at some of the comments under various news stories on various sites, or talk to your friends about it.
Watch their eyes, and how fast they want to change the subject.
When an American city is nuked, perhaps they will wake up.
