North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has said a nuclear launch button is “always on my table”, warning the US it will never be able to start a war.
In a televised new year speech, he said the entire US was within the range of North Korean nuclear weapons, adding: “This is the reality, not a threat.”
But he also offered a potential olive branch to South Korea, suggesting he was “open to dialogue”.
North Korea may also send a team to the Winter Olympics in Seoul, he said.
When asked by reporters to respond to Mr Kim’s threats, US President Donald Trump said, “we’ll see, we’ll see”.

He was speaking on the sidelines of New Year’s Eve celebrations at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
North Korea has come under increased criticism and sanctions over the past year because of its nuclear weapons programme and repeated testing of conventional missiles.
The politically isolated state has carried out six underground nuclear tests over the years and has demonstrated missiles of increasing power, BBC said.
In November, it tested the Hwasong-15, which achieved altitudes of around 4,475km (2,780 miles) – more than 10 times the height of the International Space Station.
The country claims to have developed a fully deployable nuclear weapon, though there is still some international scepticism about its true capacity to carry out such an attack.
In his televised speech, Mr Kim re-emphasised his focus on the weapons programme, saying his country must “mass produce nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles and speed up their deployment”.
But he also suggested that the relationship between North and South Korea – still technically at war – could be eased in the coming year.
“The year 2018 is a significant year for both the North and the South, with the North marking the 70th anniversary of its birth and the South hosting the Winter Olympics.
“We should melt the frozen North-South relations, thus adorning this meaningful year as a year to be specially recorded in the history of the nation,” he said.
This is being seen as a marked change in tone after a year of, particularly aggressive rhetoric.
Mr Kim said he would also consider sending a delegation to the Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in February – a gesture which South Korea has previously suggested would be welcome.
The South’s President Moon Jae-in last month suggested delaying an annual joint military drill with US troops until after the Games. The North usually denounces any such exercises as a rehearsal for war.
“North Korea’s participation in the Winter Games will be a good opportunity to show the unity of the people and we wish the Games will be a success,” said Mr Kim.
“Officials from the two Koreas may urgently meet to discuss the possibility.”
The only two North Korean athletes who qualified for the Games are figure skaters Ryom Tae-Ok and Kim Ju-Sik.
The North has missed the official deadline to confirm their participation but the two could still compete with an invitation by the International Olympic Committee.
