North Korea rejects United Nations resolution saying 'US will face the greatest pain'

North Korea rejects United Nations resolution saying 'US will face the greatest pain'

South Korea's Presidential Office has clarified once again that redeployment of tactical nuclear weapons is not being considered, despite growing calls from the opposition bloc for the country to arm itself with nuclear weapons against growing North Korean threats.

North Korea foreign ministry on Wednesday said that Pyongyang will speed up its nuclear and missile development and "categorically" rejects Monday's new United Security Security Council (UNSC) resolution against the country.

Lawmakers who spoke Tuesday supported the USA pressure tactics, while voicing skepticism that North Korea could be forced into abandon nuclear weapons it regards as a guarantee of survival for the Kim dynasty.

After a number of last minute compromises, China and Russian Federation went on to support the latest round of sanctions against Pyongyang Monday. Significantly, it stopped short of imposing a full embargo on oil exports to North Korea, most of which come from China. Back in August, the United Nations banned North Korean exports of materials such as coal and ore.

"We think it's just another very small step, not a big deal".

"I don't know if it has any impact, but certainly it was nice to get a 15 to nothing vote", Trump said Tuesday during a meeting with the Malaysian prime minister.

"Those sanctions are nothing compared to what will ultimately have to happen", he said Tuesday. Trump has vowed not to allow North Korea to possess a nuclear missile capable of hitting the United States. In June, the USA designated the Bank of Dandong, a regional Chinese bank, as a "primary money laundering concern" over its alleged help to North Korea in accessing the US and global financial systems. "Another problem is that, if both North and South Korea obtain nuclear arsenals, it could cause nuclear weapons to spread in Northeast Asia", Lee said.

"The best deterrence we can have, next to having our own nukes, is to make Kim Jong Un fear for his life", said Shin Won-sik, a retired three-star general.

In order to pressure Beijing and Moscow to do more, the US has to go after more companies and individuals that are suspected of doing business with the North Korean regime, according to Ruggiero.

"If North Korea continues its risky path, we will continue with further pressure".

North Korea, which has said it needs nuclear weapons to defend itself against "hostile" U.S. policies, "categorically rejected" the United Nations action and said the USA was "fired up" for a military confrontation but would soon face the "greatest pain" it ever experienced. "This large explosive yield is also quite close to what 38 North had previously determined to be the maximum estimated containable yield for the Punggye-ri test site", said 38 North.

"The DPRK will redouble the efforts to increase its strength to safeguard the country's sovereignty and right to existence and to preserve peace and security of the region by establishing the practical equilibrium with the USA", the report, carried by the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), read.

UNSC approves tough new sanctions against North Korea
It also prohibits North Korean imports of liquefied natural gas and condensates. Still he says, it's "nice" to get a 15-0 vote.


If one looks at China's vehement protests and retaliations against the deployment of a USA missile shield system in South Korea, it is easy to guess how seriously China would take a move to bring U.S. nukes into the South.

Assistant Treasury Secretary Marshall Billingslea acknowledged at a House hearing that he had not seen sufficient evidence past sanctions were effective, but defended the administration's strategy.

The unit, officially known as the Spartan 3000, has not been assigned to literally decapitate North Korean leaders.

China's Big Four state-owned banks have stopped providing financial services to new North Korean clients, according to branch staff, amid USA concerns that Beijing has not been tough enough over Pyongyang´s repeated nuclear tests.

This latest round of sanctions is the most restrictive to date, covering some 90% of North Korea's exports.

It's already yielding some successes, she said, pointing to the Philippines announcing it will cut all trade, and other countries, including Mexico and Egypt, taking steps to scale back links to Pyongyang.

Why AIADMK general council meet has added confusion to the air
