DPRK rejects new UNSC resolution

Added On August 8, 2017

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or DPRK, on Monday rejected the new United Nations Security Council resolution on its nuclear and missile program.
In the government's statement, it called the U.N. sanctions resolution, to all intents and purposes, is an outcome of diabolical attempts of the U.S. to isolate and stifle the DPRK.
It said the successful test-launches of ICBM by Pyongyang is "a stern warning" to Washington over its "policy of extreme hostility" toward DPRK.
The foreign minister of DPRK said his country has no intention to use nuclear weapons against any other country except the United States.
However, China on Monday called on the DPRK to make a response to the guarantees of U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who made it on Aug. 1.
The guarantees included the U.S. seeks neither a regime change nor collapse of the regime in the DPRK and the U.S. seeks neither an accelerated reunification of the peninsula nor an excuse to send the U.S. military north of the 38th Parallel.
The U.N. Security Council on Sunday unanimously passed the resolution to reinforce economic sanctions against the DPRK.
It came after Pyongyang conducted two test launches of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
