A hard lesson: the DPRK has threatened the US with a nuclear strike

North Korea refused to negotiate over its nuclear program, and promised to teach Washington a hard lesson with the use of nuclear weapons in case of military provocation.

The Minister of foreign Affairs of the DPRK Lee Yun Ho has made several harsh statements on the sidelines of the meeting of the Asia-Pacific region in Manila.

In particular, the official told reporters that Pyongyang will not negotiate about its nuclear program, despite the sanctions of the UN security Council, writes RBC with reference to The Wall Street Journal.

In his opinion, a threat to the world are not North Korean missiles, and the United States. Lee Yun Ho also said that the DPRK in case of attack from the United States “will be prepared to teach Washington a hard lesson with the use of nuclear weapons.”

Saturday, August 5, the UN Security Council voted for a resolution expanding sanctions against North Korea. The document was developed by U.S. diplomats in response to the held in July, two launches of Intercontinental ballistic missiles.

According to estimates from the American side, the full implementation of restrictions will allow a one-third reduction in annual hard currency revenues for North Korea, constituting now about three billion dollars.

The resolution prohibits member countries of the UN to import from North Korea coal, iron, iron ore, lead and seafood, as well as hire new North Korean workers, and create a new joint venture with Pyongyang.
