Pyongyang Condemns Tokyo, Seoul over Latest UNSC Sanctions

SEOUL – The Japanese government criticized on Thursday North Korea’s recent nuclear threat to Tokyo and Seoul after they expressed active support to the United States in imposing new sanctions.

Japan Home Ministry spokesperson Yoshihide Suga called the threats extremely provocative and outrageous and said that North Korea’s attitude raised tensions significantly and would lead to its further isolation.

The Japanese government is in favor of keeping maximum pressure on North Korea and maintaining a complete vigil helped by the US in order to protect the Japanese people, Suga said in a press conference.

On Wednesday night, the North Korean state news agency KCNA published a statement by a spokesperson for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, who said South Korea and Japan should be attacked for supporting the United Nations Security Council’s sanctions.

The UNSC imposed on Monday a new package of sanctions on North Korea aimed at further stifling its economy, after Pyongyang detonated a hydrogen bomb on Sept. 3, its sixth and most powerful weapon test to date.

“A telling blow should be dealt to them, who have not yet come to senses after the launch of our ICBM over the Japanese archipelago. The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche,” read the statement published by KCNA.

The Committee also criticized the South Korean government and accused it of being a traitor.

“The South Korean puppet forces are traitors and dogs of the US as they call for harsher ‘sanctions’ on their fellow countrymen,” the spokesperson said.

The North Korean regime accused the UN of having become a “tool of evil” serving the US and destroying peace instead of protecting it.

“The UNSC is made up of unprincipled countries and, accordingly, such a useless tool should be disbanded at once,” the Pyongyang statement said.
