North Korea threatens UN body after emergency meeting

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – North Korea has warned the UN Security Council not to criticize the country’s independent plan, a statement Sunday that included an unknown threat to an international conference.

During a closed-door meeting of the UN High Court on Friday, France issued a statement expressing concern over North Korea’s deportation and demanding that it fully implement the council’s decision to ban weapons.

On Sunday, Jo Chol Su, Korea’s head of North Korea’s foreign ministry, warned the UN council that it would be “better to consider what the future holds if it tries to undermine North Korea’s sovereignty.”

Jo also accused the UN body of “double-barrels” because it does not have the same arguments for similar weapons tests with the United States and its allies, according to a statement circulated by international media.

After a six-month hiatus, North Korea resumed testing missiles in September, launching newly launched weapons including nuclear weapons capable of placing South Korea and Japan, both US allies, within their precarious missiles. The country is still in talks with South Korea, in what some experts call an attempt to force Seoul to persuade Washington not to impose economic sanctions on it.

Under a resolution adopted by the UN Security Council, North Korea is banned from carrying out any nuclear missiles as the country aims to put nuclear weapons on missiles. North Korea has said its nuclear program is designed to meet the threat of US troops, though Washington has said it has no dispute with Pyongyang.

Despite its recent opening, North Korea maintains 2018 commitment to a long-term nuclear threat to the United States, a sign that it still wants to preserve live opportunities for future relations with the US.

US officials have urged North Korea to return to talks for no reason, but the North has said it will not do so unless the Americans abandon “the worst law,” in light of sanctions and military clashes between Washington and Seoul.
