North Korea threatens US with “the greatest suffering in their history” in case of new sanctions
North Korea warned that the US will “pay” if the UN Security Council extends sanctions against Pyongyang.
North Korea warned that the US will “pay” if the UN Security Council approves the Washington-prepared resolution on expanding sanctions against Pyongyang. On this night on Monday, September 11, the state-owned North Korean agency KCNA reported referring to the statement of the country’s Foreign Ministry.
The United States expects “the greatest pain and suffering in their history” if new restrictive measures are taken, the North Korean foreign ministry said.
This statement followed on the eve of the UN Security Council meeting, which is to be held on September 11 at the initiative of the United States. Washington will vote on a draft resolution with expanded sanctions against North Korea. The new restrictive measures imply an embargo on the supply of oil to Pyongyang and the freezing of assets of the leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-un. The US also wants to stop the export of textiles from the DPRK and prohibit the employment of citizens of this country to work abroad.
On September 3, North Korea announced a successful test of a hydrogen warhead that could be used to equip intercontinental ballistic missiles.
