Is North Korea looking for Allies.. Down Under?by

The ongoing spat – though that may be putting too light a head on matters – between the US and North Korea – and all the other countries muddled up in between – is causing something of a political tidal wave. Not only is the world’s safety at risk, but there’s increasing tension between some of the most vocal leaders on the planet – and with US President Donald Trump reportedly prepared to go to war ▶️ against the reclusive Pyongyang should US territories come to any harm at their hands, we are living in what some may be calling the Second Cold War – though Russia’s Vladimir Putin has been keen to advise that discussion may be the only safe route ▶️ out of such tensions.

North Korea and Kim Jong Un, meanwhile, have reportedly been seeking out allies against Trump through their Foreign Affairs Committee and DPRK Supreme People’s Assembly – as it appears that letters may have arrived on embassy doorsteps the world over. One such doorstep the communication landed on – quite surprisingly – was Australia, where Foreign Minister Julie Bishop went public on the missive she received from Mr Kim’s foreign outreach.

The note is believed to be an open letter to various parliaments ▶️ decrying Trump’s beliefs that he could ‘bring the DPRK, a nuclear power, to its knees through nuclear war threat’, and that any action he takes would be an ‘expression of ignorance’. In brilliant Aussie fashion, however, the antipodean government were having none of North Korea’s spiel, with its figurehead describing the outreach as ‘basically a rant’ about Donald Trump.

The letter allegedly offers Australia ‘assurances of its highest consideration’ – something with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has outright dismissed. “The fact of the matter is that North Korea is the one that is in breach of UN Security Council resolutions,” advised Turnbull to 3AW, a Melbourne-based radio station, according to ABC. “It is North Korea that is threatening to fire nuclear missiles at Japan and South Korea and the United States.”

Australia may be fairly removed from much of the hustle and bustle of world politics on the odd occasion, but as can be seen in this circumstance, they are still regarded as a potentially valuable ally. Thankfully for the West – and a fair chunk of the East – Turnbull and his government are hardly ready to accept North Korea’s most recent rhetoric via post.
