Looks like Kimberly Jon-un woke up in an extra pissed off mood on Monday.
The United Nations imposed new sanctions on the communist nation after the country’s recent intercontinental ballistic missile launch. In response, North Korea vowed to hit the U.S. with a ‘thousands-fold’ revenge. As if it was our fault…
The rogue nation’s official propaganda news agency — KCNA — described the newest sanctions as “crimes” that were a “violent violation of our sovereignty” and a “heinous plot to isolate and stifle” the communist country.
The statements came after President Trump tweeted Sunday that he spoke with South Korean President Moon Jae-In. The tweet read: Just completed call with President Moon of South Korea. Very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote on North Korea sanctions.
The White House added both world leaders are “committed to fully implement all relevant resolutions and to urge the international community to do so as well.”
Nikki Haley — whom is U.S. Ambassador to the UN — called the resolution “the single largest economic sanctions package ever leveled against the North Korean regime” and “the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation.”
Haley told Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures “What we basically did was kicked them in the stomach, told them to stop and told them they are not going to put up with it anymore and the ball is now in North Korea’s court. They have a big decision to make. They can either respond by pulling back and said that they’re not going to be part of this reckless activity anymore, or they can see where it goes and we’ll continue to keep up the strength and keep up the activity to make sure that we stop them.”
The sharp new U.N. sanctions also received a welcome boost on Sunday from China, North Korea’s economic lifeline, as Beijing called on its neighbor to halt its missile and nuclear tests.
For the U.S., it was a long-awaited sign of progress for Trump’s strategy of trying to enlist Beijing’s help to squeeze North Korea diplomatically and economically. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, meeting with North Korea’s top diplomat during the gathering in Manila, urged the North to “maintain calm” despite the U.N. vote.
“Do not violate the U.N.’s decision or provoke international society’s goodwill by conducting missile launching or nuclear tests,” Wang said.
The North’s statement issued Monday on state media came two days after the U.N. Security Council unanimously approved new sanctions, saying they were caused by a “heinous U.S. plot to isolate and stifle” North Korea.
It says the U.N. sanctions will never force the country to negotiate over its nuclear program or to give up its nuclear drive and that will take “action of justice” but didn’t elaborate.
