Fears global nuclear war with North Korea IMMINENT after shock warning



NUCLEAR war sparked by collapsing relations with North Korea could be imminent after a shock warning conflict is now 'inevitable'.

An 11-page report compiled by Global Zero's Nuclear Crisis Group warns the risk of a nuke war is now "unacceptably high".

Global Zero, which fights for a world free of nuke weapons, listed a set of recommendations to cool relations between countries with fatal nuclear potential.

In a stern warning, the group said: "The Nuclear Crisis Group assesses that the risk of nuclear weapons use, intended or otherwise, is unacceptably high and that all states must take constructive steps to reduce these risks."

The NCG is made up of individuals from 10 countries including Russia, China and the US.

It continued: "To reduce immediate nuclear risks, the United States and North Korea should resume bilateral discussions immediately without preconditions."

The group adds it wants to see the US "suspend flights of strategic bombers and visits by strategic submarines" and "refrain from provocative military actions that could escalate to nuclear conflict".

It comes after Daily Star Online reported how North Korea had issued a shock threat warning the US faces "final ruin" through nuclear warfare.

It further said Russia, the US and NATO should commit to not issuing public nuclear threats and hold stability talks to assess dangers coming from nuclear deployments, doctrines and modernisation programmes.

China was also warned it must cease militarising artificial islands while India and Pakistan were told they lack the security features in their nuclear programmes, reports Sputnik News.

Global Zero co-founder Bruce Blair said in a statement: "They lack safety features and the risk they would detonate from an accident is uncomfortably high. They have not developed safety features that the US and Russia have."

Further development of cyber security to prevent the hacking of nuclear weapons has also been suggested.

It was previously reported how North Korea released chilling footage of its troops training to behead a rival leader.
