North Korea Warns US Over Sanctions Push Ahead of UN Vote

North Korea Warns US Over Sanctions Push Ahead of UN Vote

Russian Federation and China, which is North Korea's biggest trade partner, favor a political solution and have said that additional sanctions would have a limited impact.

"The threat provoked the president", one source familiar with the decision told Newsmax.

Juche is North Korea's homegrown ideology of self-reliance that is a mix of Marxism and extreme nationalism preached by state founder Kim Il Sung, the current leader's grandfather.

North Korea on Sunday announced it had conducted a "successful" hydrogen bomb test, hours after two tremors were detected in the country.

"This is a clear exercise of self-defense, and there's no question we should do it", former USA ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told Newsmax.

"The world will witness how the DPRK tames the U.S. gangsters by taking a series of actions tougher than they have ever envisaged", the unnamed spokesman said.

The presidential order came after a flurry of recent provocations from Pyongyang. Last year, North Korea conducted its fifth nuclear test on the September 9 anniversary.

The president quickly responded, saying any attack against the US would be met with a fierce response. The North flight-tested its developmental Hwasong-14 ICBMs twice in July and analysis of flight data suggested that the missiles could reach deep into the USA mainland when perfected.

China has pressured South Korean businesses via boycotts and bans since Seoul decided a year ago to deploy a US-made missile defense system as a deterrent to North Korea.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, meanwhile, assured Japanese Minister of Defense Itsunori Onodera of the longstanding USA commitment to defend Japan and stated the United States will "work with Japan to enhance its ballistic missile defense capabilities".

"There is general consensus in the White House and the Pentagon that North Korea is quite close to the "red zone" and that the US must act soon or lose the upper hand", one official told Newsmax.

"Sanctions against North Korea are likely to fuel their cybercrime activity", said Bryce Boland, Singapore-based chief technology officer with FireEye.

"We are close to the finish line", Bolton said, referring to Pyongyang's recent missile and nuclear developments.

North Korea warned early Monday that the United States would feel the "greatest pain" if it pushed ahead with a new round of sanctions.

Japan already spends billions of dollars on US -made missile-warning radars, ballistic missile defense warships and Patriot batteries.

Japan also is considering acquiring the THAAD (terminal high-altitude area defense) missile system, as well as advanced tactical fighters and helicopters.

Leader Kim Jong-un called the country's latest weapon test "a great victory" during a banquet held in Pyongyang on September 9 which coincided with the 69th anniversary of the founding of the country.

Neither the White House nor the Pentagon would provide details, leaving experts to speculate on what specific new hardware the United States would provide to its allies to help counter or deter Pyongyang.

"The DPRK (the Democratic People's Republic of Korea) is ready and willing to use any form of ultimate means" and the USA would pay a heavy price if new sanctions proposed by Washington are adopted, North Korea's foreign ministry said, using the country's official name.
