Days after the United Nations Security Council promised to increase sanctions on North Korea for its nuclear program and missile testing, Kim Jong Un responded with a daunting threat.
The new sanctions are in response to the North’s successful ICBM test on July 4th.

“Should the UNSC adopt another ‘resolution on sanctions’, this will trigger corresponding measures by the DPRK and (the North will) respond to the ‘resolution’ with its act of justice,” a foreign ministry spokesman told North Korean Central News Agency, according to Yonhap News Agency.
The U.S. is “inviting its ultimate doom by resorting to the sanctions and pressure campaign against the DPRK,” it added.
“It will be a fatal mistake to consider any chance that the DPRK which rose to a dignified nuclear power and an ICBM state would tolerate the reckless ‘sanctions’ racket of the U.S. and other hostile forces,” the report said.
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said the United States hopes to neutralize the situation via a diplomatic approach.
“We’re going to go ahead and push for a strong resolution against North Korea,” she said, adding that the U.S. would also “push hard” against China if does not do more when it comes to handling the North.
