N.Korea rejects UN sanctions resolution, warns US
Pyongyang’s ambassador Han Tae Song, addressing the UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, said: “The Washington regime fired up for political, economic, and military confrontation, (is) obsessed with the wild game of reversing the DPRK’s development of nuclear force which has already reached the completion phase”.
The Security Council unanimously stepped up sanctions against North Korea yesterday over the country’s sixth and most powerful nuclear test conducted on Sept 3, imposing a ban on its textile exports and capping imports of crude oil.
“My hope is the regime will hear the message loud and clear and it will choose a different path,” US disarmament ambassador Robert Woods told the Geneva forum today. – Reuters
