Corbyn: UK should stay out of any military action against North Korea

Recent missile tests have put worldwide attention on North Korea, a country vying to be the world’s next nuclear power.

National security adviser H.R. McMaster said Sunday he doesn’t think the U.S.is closer to war now with North Korea than it was a week ago.

“Well over a hundred thousand people died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki from what were small atomic bombs”, Mr Corbyn said.

“We can not play fast and loose with nuclear weapons and nuclear threats. Our government must press for measured responses to bring the temperature down”.

Washington and Pyongyang have been engaged in an escalating war of words since Wednesday when Trump warned of “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if the North continues escalating its nuclear threat.

Trump also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it added.

“Our government must not drag our country into any military action over the Korea crisis, including joint exercises”.

Although Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty states that an attack on one NATO member is an act of aggression against the entire military alliance, the application of this provision is limited only to attacks on member states’ territories in North America, Europe and the Atlantic.

Mr Trump has threatened to rain “fire and fury” on the reclusive state after Pyongyang said it was “carefully examining” a plan to strike Guam with missiles.

North Korean workers have held rallies in support of Kim Jong-un’s regime as they country continued to rail against fresh United Nations sanctions that cut off $1billion in global trade.

On Thursday, Kim Jong-un threatened to strike waters around the USA base in Guam.
