North Korea Versus US Brouhaha..

North Korea has vowed to retaliate and make "the US pay a price" for drafting fresh UN sanctions over its banned nuclear weapons programme.





The sanctions, which were unanimously passed by the UN on Saturday, were a "violent violation of our sovereignty," the official KCNA news agency said.
Separately, South Korea says the North has rejected an offer to restart talks, dismissing it as insincere.


The sanctions will aim to reduce North Korea's export revenues by a third.
The UN Security Council decision followed repeated missile tests by the North which have escalated tensions on the peninsula.


In its first major response on Monday, North Korea insisted that it would continue to develop its controversial nuclear weapons programme.
The state-run KCNA news agency said Pyongyang would "not put our self-defensive nuclear deterrent on the negotiating table" while it faces threats from the US.


It threatened to make the US "pay the price for its crime... thousands of times," referring to America's role in drafting the UN sanctions resolution.
Speaking to reporters at a regional forum in the Philippine capital, Manila, North Korean spokesman Bang Kwang Hyuk said: "The worsening situation on the Korean peninsula, as well as the nuclear issues, were caused by the United States.


"We affirm that we'll never place our nuclear and ballistic missiles programme on the negotiating table, and won't budge an inch on strengthening nuclear armament."
The remarks come after reports emerged that the North and South Korean foreign ministers had met briefly on Sunday evening on the sidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) summit in Manila.


South Korean media reported that its Foreign Minister, Kang Kyung-wha, shook hands with her North Korean counterpart, Ri Yong Ho, in a brief and unarranged meeting at an official dinner event.
A South Korean official told the BBC that Mr Ri had dismissed Ms Kang's offer of talks as "insincere".


South Korean news agency Yonhap reported Ms Kang as saying that Mr Ri's rejection of the talks proposal appeared to be connected to the new sanctions.
"I told him that [the two offers for talks] are an urgent matter that should be carried out immediately with any political agenda put aside and asked him to proactively react," she was quoted as saying.
The foreign minister of China, which is Pyongyang's closest ally, told journalists on Monday: "My feeling is that the North did not entirely reject the positive proposals raised by the South."

Wang Yi added that China also supported the South's initiatives, and was "100%" committed to enforcing the latest round of UN sanctions.
What are the new sanctions?

Importing coal, seafood, iron and iron ore, lead and lead ore from North Korea is banned
Countries cannot receive new North Korean workers
No new joint ventures with North Korean entities or individuals
No new investment in existing joint ventures
More individuals targeted with travel bans and assets freezes
Member states to report to the UN Security Council within 90 days on how they have implemented resolution

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is also at the Asean forum, where he spoke about North Korea.
Noting Russia and China's participation in the unanimous vote, he told journalists it was clear there was now "no daylight among the international community" on their desire for North Korea to stop its tests.
"The best signal that North Korea can give us [is] that they are prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches," He added.


Russia and China have previously differed with others on how to handle Pyongyang, but in recent months have joined calls for North Korea to stop its missile tests - while also urging the US and South Korea to halt military drills, and withdraw an anti-missile system from the South.


On Monday, US President Donald Trump spoke to his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in over the phone about relations on the Korean peninsula.
They agreed that North Korea "poses a grave and growing direct threat" and the two leaders were committed to fully implementing the latest round of UN sanctions, the White House said in a statement.

Hmm...
As much as I don't support Korea's nuclear weapons program et al, the US is as equally guilty.
The US is very power-hungry and people need to remove the blindfold from their eyes about the leaders of America, or the powers that control it.
Very wicked, satanic set of people who have a common agenda - a New World Order where they control everything and everyone.
These dystopian movies know what they are talking about but people have refused to see it.
Before you come and rant, it's common knowledge, or at least to some.
See books like, "Tranceformation of America." by Cathy O'Brien, and books by Kerth Berker.
People, go read a book and be informed on the happenings in the world!
Not what you see on the news. They own the media and decide what's let out or not.
The UN which is another devilish front is controlled by the US. You should read of the genius, devilish think-thanks that work there.
Are there good people there? Yes. Are they aware of the agenda? Yes, but they are so powerless to oppose and destroy the decades of systematic planning and work achieved by the powers-that-be.
After reading Cathy O'Brien's and Brice Taylor's books, I've seen things in a different light.
It's also a wonder how other countries are terrorists and the US isn't, when indeed they are the biggest of them all.

You know this.
