Pyongyang's state-controlled news agency KCNA issued a statement on Monday directly threatening Japan, stating the country's preparations for a possible war could be "destroyed to pieces".

The statement read: "Should Japan take the advantages of the US war racket, they can not but be a target of the powerful strike means of the DPRK's revolutionary armed forces.

"Japan can never be safe if a war breaks out on the Korean peninsula. Everything in Japan mobilised for the war can be destroyed to pieces, to say nothing of the US aggression bases there.

"The Japanese authorities are strongly warned that if they go reckless with the backing of the US they can bring irrevocable misfortune to the Japanese archipelago."

The warning comes after the reclusive communist country led by dictator Kim Jong-un appears to be preparing for war itself.

An article in a state-run newspaper said the country was now in "full readiness" for battle after months of verbal attacks. It said: "All our service persons and people have turned out in the retaliatory war of justice.  "The DPRK has already been in full readiness. All striking means are on the alert," it added.
