North Korea Threatens U.S. over Sanctions

Aug 8, 2017

North Korea has responded as expected to the United Nations Security Council imposing tough new sanctions on the rogue state. Kim Jong Un and his government are blaming the United States for the sanctions and promising “thousand fold revenge.” The regime is known for making outlandish threats against the U.S. and its allies, but threats are still taken seriously because the country does possess nuclear weapons.

In the meantime, China has issued its strongest warning ever to Kim, telling him to comply with the sanctions that ban certain exports, and to stop testing missiles and nuclear weapons.
