U.S. Plans Strategy as N. Korea Vows Sanctions Revenge

Updated on

North Korea condemned the latest round of United Nations sanctions and reiterated that it wouldn’t negotiate over its nuclear program until the U.S. ceases “hostile” policies.

Kim Jong Un’s regime said it will “make the U.S. pay dearly for all the heinous crime it commits against the state and people of this country,” the Korean Central News Agency reported on Monday. In a separate statement to reporters in Manila, North Korea called President Donald Trump’s “America First” policy dangerous and said its nuclear program was necessary to avoid a U.S. invasion similar to those in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.
