    Using computer-generated graphics, video clip titled “Last chance” features North Korea launching a nuclear attack on the capital of the US. Captions say that if Washington attempts another provocative act, Pyongyang will use nuclear weapons without hesitation.

    The video posted on a YouTube channel of North Korean media DPRK Today demonstrates the country's military capabilities and narrates a story of its relations with the US. At the end of the video, North Korea launches a ballistic missile which hits Washington, and the American flag is shown in flames.

    If there are any further provocations from the US, "we will launch a preventive nuclear attack without thinking twice," the subtitles read.

    In January North Korea successfully carried out a hydrogen bomb test, and one month later put a satellite into orbit, violating UN Security Council resolutions and escalating tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

    On March 2, the UN Security Council adopted the toughest sanctions imposed against North Korea in the past decade. The latest restrictions make all cargo going to and from the country subject to inspections and limit or prohibit the nation's export of coal, iron, gold, titanium and rare natural minerals.

    Troops from the United States, South Korea, Australia, Denmark, France and the United Kingdom in March carried out joint large-scale exercises intended to maintain Seoul's military preparedness.
