North Korea Threatens U.S. As ‘Sworn Enemy’
3 months ago
The country makes pledge to continue more nuclear testing.
On the heels of President Barack Obama’s second term, the North Korean military is using its most aggressive and threatening rhetoric towards the United States since Kim Jong-un took power. In a statement released on Thursday by its National Defense Commission, North Korea repeatedly challenged the U.S. role in pushing nuclear sanctions.
“We do not hide that a variety of satellites and long-range rockets which will be launched by the DPRK one after another and a nuclear test of higher level which will be carried out by it in the upcoming all-out action, a new phase of the anti-U.S. struggle that has lasted century after century, will target against the U.S., the sworn enemy of the Korean people,” the statement reads.
The rebellious moves comes after the Security Council on Tuesday adopted a resolution that tightened sanctions on North Korea and condemned the Dec. 12 rocket launch. The statement said that the country plans to settle accounts with the U.S. by force rather than with words. Only “denuclearization” of the United States and the rest of the world will halt the country from pursuing nuclear weapons. (MSNBC)
