April 5, 2013

A senior Iranian commander on Friday said that North Korea was reacting to "warmongering policies" by the United States, Fars news agency reported.

"North Korea has de facto no other option than to deal with warmongering U.S. policies in the region and American military presence in (South) Korea," the deputy commander of Iran's armed forces, Massoud Jazayeri, said.

"In case of a military conflict in the region, a huge damage would be inflicted to the U.S. and its allies," the general added.
