North Korea Refuses To Negotiate, Threatens US With “Severe Nuclear Lesson”

For all the hope that this weekend's UN breakthrough, in which the Security Council voted unanimously 15-0 to impose $1 billion in sanctions on North Korea exports, that saw both China and Russia side with the US, it appears that North Korea refuses to even contemplate a negotiation or a cooling of tensions. As the following headlines suggest, a retaliation remains a real possibility.

  • NORTH KOREAN FOREIGN MINISTER: PYONGYANG WILL 'UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES' NEGOTIATE ON ITS NUCLEAR WEAPONS
  • NORTH KOREA SAYS IT'S READY TO TEACH U.S. 'SEVERE LESSON' WITH NUCLEAR STRATEGIC FORCE IF IT TAKES MILITARY ACTION
  • NORTH KOREA TOP DIPLOMAT SAYS NO NEGOTIATIONS ON ITS NUCLEAR & MISSILE PROGRAM UNLESS U.S. GIVES UP HOSTILE POLICY TOWARD PYONGYANG:

This was North Korea's first official response to the fresh sanctions voted through by the UN security council.

As Reuters elaborates, North Korea is ready to give the United States a "severe lesson" with its strategic nuclear force if it takes military action against it, and will not put its nuclear program or its missiles on the negotiating table, it said in a statement to a regional meeting on Monday.

In a transcript of a statement by Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho, which was distributed to media in Manila, Pyongyang called new U.N. sanctions "fabricated" and warned there would be "strong follow-up measures" and acts of justice. It said the resolution showed the United Nations had abused its authority.

As quoted by Bloomberg, North Korea asked Asean and participants in regional forum in Manila to “take impartial and practical stand and attitude” on its nuclear weapons, which it says it has no intention of using against any other country except U.S. and those that will join America.

“We take great pride and self-conceit in the fact that we can contribute to decisively reducing the danger of war on the Korean Peninsula, Northeast Asia and in the Asia Pacific by possessing a strong nuclear deterrence,” North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho says in statement at Asean Regional Forum, a copy of which was distributed to reporters in Manila

North Korea expects forum and Asean “will distinguish the essence of the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula and the danger of the ‘America First’ policy” as foreign ministers showing great deal of interest in situation in Korean peninsula. The foreign minister also accused Japan, South Korean authorities of “kowtowing blindly to U.S.”

He said that North Korea seeks to convince UN to withdraw sanctions and to persuade U.S. to drop its hostile policy:

“Had it not been the hostile policy enforced by the U.S. for more than 70 years against North Korea since the first day if its founding and had the policy not been intensified with an undisguised nuclear blackmail and threat, the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula would not have come into being from the beginning.

North Korea also said its intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July proved that the entire United States was in its firing range, and those missiles were a legitimate means of self-defense.

On Sunday night Donald Trump tweeted that he had "Just completed call with President Moon of South Korea. Very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote on North Korea sanctions."

While Trump, who is on "working vacation" for the next two weeks, is up early, tweeting up another firestorm this morning, he has yet to respond to the latest rebuttal from North Korea.
