North Korea slams UN sanctions, says will take ‘righteous action’: agency

North Korea denounced Monday the United Nations’ latest sanctions imposed on the isolated state, saying they infringe on its sovereignty and vowed to take “righteous action”, the North’s official news agency reported.

The government statement reiterated Pyongyang’s previous stance that it will never place its nuclear programme on the negotiating table as long as the United States maintains a hostile policy against the North. It did not detail what action it would take.

“There is no bigger mistake than the United States believing that its land is safe across the ocean,” KCNA said.
