Defence Commission Promises New Nuke Test
North Korea’s National Defence Commission (NDC) has reacted to the latest UN Security Council sanctions against their nation with a new statement condemning the body as a “marionette of the US” and mocking the resolution.
The NDC went on to promise a new nuclear weapons test in the future, as well as more work on the advancement of long-range missiles and warheads, saying they are all aimed at “our arch-enemy the United States.”
The NDC insisted that rocket tests would continue and that North Korea intends to settle accounts with the US “with force, not with words, as it regards jungle law as the rule of its survival.”
North Korea has tested nuclear weapons twice before, in 2006 and 2009, each time after the UN imposed new sanctions on them for attempting to launch satellites into orbit. The 2006 test is widely considered a failure, though the 2009 test appears to have been more successful.
