Pyongyang has criticized the new round of UN restrictions against it, promising to respond with “righteous action” and hinting that the US mainland cannot consider itself safe, North Korean state media reported.
Sanctions approved by all 15 members of the UN Security Council on Saturday outraged North Korea, which for years has refused to negotiate its nuclear program, instead accusing the US and its allies of aggression.
Pyongyang has promised to use “righteous action” in response, although without elaborating, North Korea’s KCNA news agency reported, as cited by Reuters.
“It's a wild idea to think the DPRK will be shaken and change its position due to this kind of new sanctions formulated by hostile forces,” AP cited the agency.
North Korea reiterated its previous claims that the US mainland is vulnerable, as it had earlier said that its missiles can hit the whole of the US.
