North Korea’s UN envoy vowed Tuesday to ship “more gift packages” to the United States which has led worldwide condemnation of what Pyongyang known as a profitable hydrogen bomb take a look at.
The pledge from North Korea’s envoy to the United Nations in Geneva, Han Tae Song, was delivered at the Conference on Disarmament as world powers weighed choices to mood North Korea’s nuclear menace.
“The recent self-defence measures by my country DPRK (Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea) are a gift package addressed to none other than the US,” Han instructed the UN physique.
“The US will receive more gift packages from my country as long as it relies on reckless provocations and futile attempts to put pressure on the DPRK.”
Washington has known as for the “strongest possible measures” towards North Korea for detonating what Pyongyang stated was a hydrogen bomb that might be mounted on a missile.
The announcement dramatically upped the stakes in North Korea’s standoff with the worldwide group over its banned weapons programmes, which have seen it subjected to seven units of UN Security Council sanctions up to now.
Han instructed the UN convention that he was “proud” to substantiate that his nation had “successfully carried out the hydrogen bomb test.”
“Pressure or sanctions will never work on my country,” he added.
“DPRK will never under any circumstance put its nuclear deterrence on the negotiating table, nor will we step back even an inch from the road of pursuing its nuclear force, unless the hostile policy and the nuclear threat of the US against my country are completely eradicated.”(AFP)
