N Korea Slams New UN Sanctions: No Nuclear Negotiations
Local Editor

North Korea on Monday condemned the latest round of United Nations sanctions imposed against it over its weapons program, saying it would not negotiate over its nuclear arms while it was threatened by the United States.

N Korea Slams New UN Sanctions: No Nuclear Negotiations

The sanctions passed at the weekend were a "violent violation of our sovereignty",

Pyongyang said in a statement carried by its official Korea Central News Agency.
"We will not put our self-defensive nuclear deterrent on the negotiating table" while it faced threats from Washington, it said, "and will never take a single step back from strengthening our nuclear might".

The new restrictions seem tougher than ever before, as they close the loopholes of the previous resolutions and target the North's key revenue sources - the export of coal, iron, and iron ore among others. The UNSC resolution also imposes a full ban on the export of lead, lead ore, and seafood, prohibits increasing the total number of North Korean workers abroad and creating or investing in joint ventures with the North.

The UN's previous six attempts have apparently failed to properly affect Pyongyang, which claimed to test-fire two intercontinental ballistic missiles [ICBMs] in July. The UNSC responded to those tests with fresh sanctions, which were unanimously adopted by the 15-member body on Saturday.
