North Korea Promises ‘Righteous Action’ Over New Sanctions


North Korea has responded to tough new United Nations Security Council sanctions with typical defiance, calling the measures a “violent violation” of its sovereignty and promising “righteous action” in return. In statements carried by the official Korea Central News Agency on Sunday, Pyongyang rejected calls for it to return to the negotiating table over its nuclear weapons program, vowing that its nuclear deterrent would not be affected by threats from Washington, Al Jazeera reports. We “will never take a single step back from strengthening our nuclear might,” Pyongyang’s statement said. The sanctions are expected to slash North Korea’s annual $3 billion export revenue by a third.
