North Korea today warned that mainland America is now within range of its missiles as it accused the U.S. of conspiring with South Korea. It comes after Seoul announced that it has reached a deal with Washington allowing it to nearly triple the range of its missiles to better cope with North Korean nuclear threats. North Korea claims the move proves that the allies are plotting to invade the country – calling the deal a ‘product of another conspiracy of the master and the stooge’ to ‘ignite a war’ against the North. In a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency, a spokesman at the powerful National Defense Commission said the North would bolster its military preparedness.
