Theresa May could use Cyber Warfare to retaliate North Korea missile attacks on Japan

Former UK Prime Minister Theresa May has issued a stern warning to North Korea in retaliation for latter’s missile attacks on Japan. The ex-minister who is now touring Japan issued a media briefing a few hours ago in which she reacted sharply to the escalating crisis of Pyongyang’s latest missile launch.

While leaving the conference with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Mrs. May said that the actions of North Korea are illegal, provocative and outrageous. At this point of time, the former UK Prime Minister refused to rule out cyber warfare or military action against North Korea in retaliation to its missile launch in Japan.

Mrs. May is currently discussing the issue with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on what can be done. And has declared full support to Japan from her nation if the crisis deteriorates.

Mrs. May told the press that she has sent a message to China’s President Xi Jinping that he will be responsible for the cynic actions taken up by North Korea’s ruler Kim Jong Un in coming weeks.

To those who haven’t caught the latest headlines, Pyongyang fired a missile on Tuesday that flew over Japan before landing in the Pacific, triggering a national alert in the electronics heaven.

Kim Jong Un, the ruler of North Korea has specified in one of his interviews that he will carry on missile tests even if other nations start to retaliate.

Meanwhile, United States 45th President Donald Trump has already made it clear that he has all the options on the table for dealing with North Korea. He said that White House is not going tolerate military and cyber attacks propelled by North Korea anymore.

Note- Theresa May is in Japan on a 3-day visit to create business and trade opportunities between the said two nations. Trade experts say that May is preparing the ground to convince Japan that UK and Tokyo will be perfect partners in trade after Brexit.
