Korean peninsula on verge of war

Korean WarThe situation on the Korean peninsula is amazingly tense, further escalations have taken things to the verge of war.

All of the 15 UN security council members voted unanimously for tighter sanctions on North Korea (DPRK) (known as resolution 2094).

The 15 members of the UN security council consists of 5 permanent members and 10 other members who normally serve 1 year terms before being changed:

5 permanent members:
China
France
Russia
UK
US

10 current other members:
Azerbaijan
Argentina
Australia
Guatemala
Republic of Korea
Morocco
Pakistan
Luxembourg
Rwanda
Togo

In response to resolution 2094 North Korea has scrapped the ceasefire armistice agreement that was signed in 1953 by the UN, North Korea and China.

The North went on to say that it had the right to launch pre-emptive strikes following on from foreign aggression.

The scrapping of the armistice agreement leaves the Korean peninsula in a desperate situation and on the verge of war.
