WASHINGTON - A North Korean Parliamentary Commission has sent a threatening letter to the US House of Representatives. The North Koreans warn their American colleagues that imposing new sanctions will only lead to further acceleration of the development of nuclear weapons.
An overwhelming majority of US delegates voted earlier this month for stricter sanctions against North Korea, which works against nuclear weapons and missiles against Washington. That shot Pyongyang in the wrong throat: North Koreans accused the House of being 'obsessed' in their letter.
The new sanctions, which must still be approved by the Senate, should finance Kim Jong-un's regime. This should make it more difficult to fund a nuclear weapon program.
'As the House of Representatives makes more of this kind of reckless and hostile laws, the efforts of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to acquire nuclear deterrence will only increase in speed', the commission is threatening in the letter, published by State Press Office KCNA.
