As the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier is expected to arrive in waters near the Korean Peninsula next week, North Korea has issued a fresh threat.

The North's propaganda outlet Uriminzokkiri TV posted a three-and-a-half minute-long video on Thursday titled "Effects of sanctions on North Korea."

The video claims that as the U.S. supercarrier approaches, the North's annihilating strikes will grow that much more powerful.

It also said Pyongyang will not be startled by a mere U.S. nuclear-powered strike group and threatened to "inflict destructive punishment with no chance of survival on those who touch North Korea."
