North Korea lifts moratorium on nuclear and missile tests

The country no longer feels bound by a corresponding agreement with the U.S., according to a statement issued late tuesday evening (local time) by the eaves ministry in pjongjang. The ministry also threatened unspecified “retaliatory measures” and criticized the security council’s condemnation of the missile launch.

The U.S. Department of defense called the north korean government’s declaration “not surprising, given its recent behavior.”. At the same time, spokesman mark toner pointed out that not only the u.S. Agreement, but also u.N. Resolutions obligated pjongjang to refrain from nuclear tests. U.S. Continued to remind north korea “very clearly” of these commitments.

The revisions by the euphoric ministry in pjongjang were the communist country’s first formal response to the UN security council’s presidential declaration on the missile launch, which all members, including china and russia, had agreed to on monday. The multistage missile that north korea launched on friday had exploded in midair shortly after liftoff. The U.S. And other countries saw it as a test of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. North korea had spoken of a satellite launch.

“We firmly and completely reject the UN security council’s unreasonable behavior of violating the legitimate right of the people’s republic (north korea) to launch a satellite,” the eaves ministry in pjongjang was quoted as saying by state media.

In response to the missile launch, the U.S. Had announced it would cancel its planned food aid to north korea. The aid had been promised by the U.S. In late february in return for north korea’s pledge to suspend, among other things, its uranium enrichment at the yongbyon nuclear center, as well as nuclear weapons testing and testing of long-range missiles. In highly enriched form, uranium can be used to build nuclear bombs.

The new commander of U.S. Forces in the pacific, samuel locklear, told reporters in seoul on tuesday that the united states and its allies want to keep “all options open” in the dispute over north korea’s nuclear and missile programs, including military action. However, it would not be appropriate to talk about future military operations in detail. The admiral had responded to a question about whether the U.S. Would also consider military strikes against missile bases and nuclear weapons test sites in north korea to prevent provocations by the country, the south korean news agency yonhap reported.
