THE North Korea defended its missile tests, citing its right to legal defense and United States of America that they are deliberately escalating by imposing new sanctions, the official news agency of the country, the KCNA, citing Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The recent development of a “new type of weapon” is part of its effort North Korea to modernize its national defense, while it does not target a specific country, nor does it harm the security of its neighbors, said a representative of the North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, according to the statement transmitted by KCNA, in accordance with ΑΠΕ ΜΠΕ.
The US government imposed the first sanctions against it on Wednesday (12/1) North Korea because of its armament program Pyongyang, following a series of North Korean rocket launches, including two last week.
THE North Korea claimed that these were “supersonic missiles” that would strengthen its armed forces. In fact, one of them was attended by Kim Jong Un. The leader of the country has given the order to accelerate their strengthening Armed forces of the country with advanced technology weapons systems, causing concern in South Korea, but mainly in Japan which in turn is developing new weapons to prevent a possible attack by supersonic missiles.
US sanctions show that although the Washington speaks of diplomacy and dialogue, “pursues policy aimed at isolation and strangulation” of North Korea, stressed her Foreign Ministry.
The American accusations against her Pyongyang for exercising its right to legal defense, it is underlined, “they are an obvious challenge and a gangster logic”.
A spokesman for the North Korean Foreign Ministry warned – without elaborating – that there would be a “strong reaction” if the USA adopt a confrontational stance.
