Pyongyang, November 24 (QNA) – Pyongyang has vowed a stern response to the United Nations’ passage of a resolution on the human rights conditions in the North, calling it a declaration of war.
North Korea’s powerful National Defense Commission said in a statement that the North’s “army and people categorically deny and reject the resolution on human rights fabricated by the US and its allies by abusing the UN.”
The commission also warned of the possibility of conducting a fourth nuclear test noting it had withdrawn from the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty in 1993, according to Korea’s (KBS WORLD) website.
The commission also called on the Obama administration to officially apologize for the passage of the resolution. It warned that “the U.S. and its followers will be wholly accountable for the unimaginable and catastrophic consequences to be entailed by the frantic human right racket.”
The commission also issued threats against South Korea, asking if President Park Geun-hye thinks the presidential office “will be safe if guns roar for aggression and a nuclear war breaks out on the Korean Peninsula.” (QNA)
