North Korea has launched into a war of words against Australia over the country’s alliance with the U.S., warning the country is within striking range of a nuclear weapon.
A spokesman for the North Korean foreign ministry accused Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop of spouting “a string of rubbish against the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea)” over the country’s missile testing, adding “Australia is blindly and zealously toeing the U.S. line.”

In Japan last week, Bishop said Australia supported the “United States’ approach that all options be on the table with regard to curbing North Korea’s illegal and belligerent behavior” and mooted the idea of further sanctions.
Bishop’s comments prompted the North Korean foreign ministry to launch a direct attack, which was broadcast on the Korean Central News Agency on Friday: “What she uttered can never be pardoned as it is an act against peace that patronizes and shields the U.S. extreme hostile policy toward the DPRK.”
