Following the US’ pursuit of a oil embargo on North Korea and freezing of its leader Kim Jong Un, the regime has warned that it will inflict “the greatest pain and suffering” on the US if it does not discontinue from the agenda, according to The Guardian.
The US seeking of the sanctions came after North Korea launched its by far the greatest and more advanced nuclear-tipped missiles last Sunday, which has the capacity of reaching many US territories. Washington is seeking a meeting of the UN Security Council later on Monday, and is also backing an end to textile imports and a ban on North Koreans working overseas.
However, in a statement reported by the official KCNA news agency on Monday, the Republic’s foreign ministry warned the US that if it “did rig up the illegal and unlawful ‘resolution’ on harsher sanctions, the DPRK shall make absolutely sure that the US pays a due price”.
“The forthcoming measures to be taken by the DPRK will cause the US the greatest pain and suffering it has ever gone through in its entire history. The world will witness how the DPRK tames the US gangsters by taking a series of action tougher than they have ever envisaged,” it added.
Meanwhile, the UN Security Council which though earlier agreed on tougher sanctions on Pyongyang following its test of hydrogen bombs loaded on two ICBMs, is still puzzled on how to respond to the nuclear test.
