SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea Thursday warned that it was planning a third nuclear test with an aim to target its “sworn enemy”, the United States, with long range ballistic missiles carrying atomic warheads.
The country’s top military body, headed by the North Korean young leader, Kim Jong-un, also denounced Tuesday’s UN Security Council resolution condemning Pyongyang’s December rocket launch.
“We don’t hide the fact that the various satellites and long-range rockets which the DPRK will fire one after another and the high-level nuclear test we will carry out are targeted at the United States, the sworn enemy of the Korean people” the National Defence Commission said in a statement carried by official news agency KCNA.
North Korea’s official name is the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
“Settling accounts with the US needs to be done with force, not with words, as it regards jungle law as the rule of its survival,” the commission said.
