PYONGYANG, April 23 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said on Sunday that the United States is sending nuclear carrier taskforces to waters off the Korean Peninsula around April 25, the 85th anniversary of the founding of the DPRK army.
The official Minju Joson Sunday, published by the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK, quoted unspecified military sources as saying that the U.S. plans to "hurl several nuclear carrier taskforces, including Carl Vinson and Nimitz, into the operational theater of the Korean Peninsula around April 25."
The DPRK army will hit back "whether they are on the peninsula, at military aggression bases in the Pacific or in the U.S. mainland across the ocean" if provoked, the newspaper said.
"If our Juche weapons with potentials unimaginable by the U.S. open fire, they will destroy the U.S. forces and their stooges to the last man so that there would not be left even a single man who will sign the surrender document," it added.
Juche means the "self-reliance thoughts" created by the DPRK founder Kim Il Sung, which serves as the basis for all domestic, military and foreign policies of the country.
U.S. President Donald Trump said recently Washington was sending an "armada" to the Korean Peninsula to check attempts by the DPRK to conduct more nuclear and missile tests.
Speculations are high on whether Pyongyang could conduct another nuclear or missile test around April 25.
