geneva - North Korea accused the United States of firing on the Korean Peninsula on Tuesday at an 'extremely explosive level.' The country declared it entitled to react with 'severe countermeasures.'
Han Tae Song, the North Korean ambassador to the United Nations (UN) in Geneva, did not explicitly state the last test of a ballistic rocket of his country earlier in the day, flying over Japan and entering the Pacific.
'With the United States openly declaring their hostile intentions against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea by holding aggressive joint military exercises despite repeated warnings, my country has every reason to react with heavy countermeasures as an exercise of the right to self-defense,' Han said UN conference on disarmament.
Han: 'And the United States should be fully responsible for the catastrophic consequences that it entails. '
