N. Korea: "We will sink Japan, reduce the US mainland to ashes"

After the UN Security Council voted to impose further sanctions on North Korea, Pyongyang responded with a new series of threats: “Japan is no longer needed to exist near us,” and the United States should be “beaten to death like a rabid dog.”

North Korea issued a new set of threats in response to the UN Security Council's approval of sanctions against the isolated country. The Korea Asia-Pacific peace committee, in charge of the country's foreign relations, called for the dismantling of the UN Security Council, calling it a 'tool of evil' in Washington, D.C.'s pocket.

“The four islands of the (Japanese) archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche,” the committee said in a statement. “Japan is no longer needed to exist near us,” they added.

To the United States, the country that initiated and promoted the intensification of the sanctions on North Korea in the Security Council, Pyongyang issued an explicit threat: “Let’s reduce the US mainland into ashes and darkness. Let’s vent our spite with mobilisation of all retaliation means which have been prepared till now."

Immediately after the sanctions were approved by the UN Security Council, the North Korean representative at the organization's headquarters in Geneva said that the "illegal and unlawful" sanctions were "a grave challenge to international peace and justice" and warned that the consequences would "make the US suffer the greatest pain it's ever experienced in its history."

As reported earlier by JOL, the UN Security Council approved the sanctions against North Korea on Monday in light of the pariah state’s sixth and most dangerous nuclear test. The sanctions include a ban on Pyongyang’s textile export and restrictions on its oil import.
