N. Korea Slams New UN Sanctions, Warns US of ‘Greatest Pain’
Wednesday, 13 September 2017 19:50 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

North Korea strongly criticized Tuesday the U.N. Security Council's decision to impose tough new sanctions against the East Asian nation, and warned the United States would experience the "greatest pain" for playing a leading role in the effort.

"My delegation condemns in the strongest terms and categorically rejects the latest illegal and unlawful U.N. Security Council resolution," said North Korean Ambassador Han Tae Song at a U.N.-sponsored disarmament conference in Geneva.

North Korea, Han said without elaborating, is poised to "use a form of ultimate means."

North Korea had warned before the latest sanctions were imposed that the U.S. would pay "due price" if it pushed for stronger sanctions.

Aside from North Korea, reaction in Asia to the latest round of international sanctions has been positive, but many are still skeptical they will have any significant impact.

The new round of economic sanctions against North Korea were in response to its September 3 nuclear test of a possible hydrogen bomb.
