NKorea ’Ready & Willing’ To Respond To ’US Gangster’-led Sanctions Vote
Local Editor

North Korea promised to 'tame US gangsters' after US calls for tougher UN measures against it.

Meanwhile, UN Security Council voted on new sanctions Monday; original draft resolution that included ban on oil and gas exports to country, in addition to personal sanctions against North Korean Leader Kim, was mitigated due to pressure from Pyongyang's allies China, Russia.

"The world will witness how the DPRK tames the US gangsters by taking a series of actions tougher than they have ever envisaged," North Korea's Foreign Ministry's spokesperson stated on Monday, following the US's call push for the United Nations Security Council to vote for new sanctions against North Korea.

The proposed resolution, though less severe than the US originally aimed to secure, is to be voted on by the council on Monday.

Following news of the vote, North Korea's Foreign Ministry issued a statement, saying it was watching the United States' moves closely and warned that it was "ready and willing" to respond with measures of its own. It also warned the United States it would pay a "due price" for spearheading the sanction efforts.

"The US is trying to use the DPRK's legitimate self-defensive measures as an excuse to strangle and completely suffocate it," the statement said, using the acronym for North Korea's formal name. "Since the US is revealing its nature as a blood-thirsty beast obsessed with the wild dream of reversing the DPRK's development of the state nuclear force which has already reached the completion phase, there is no way that the DPRK is going to wait and let the US feast on it."

North Korea's Foreign Ministry spokesman added that the United States was "going frantic" to manipulate the Security Council over Pyongyang's nuclear test, which it said was part of "legitimate self-defensive measures."
