N. Korea threatens 'physical' actions over new U.N. sanctions

SEOUL, Aug. 8 (Yonhap) -- North Korea threatened Tuesday to take "physical" actions in response to the United Nations Security Council's adoption of a new sanctions resolution, calling it a U.S.-led terrorist act against Pyongyang.

The warning by the North's Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee came one day after North Korea's government rejected the U.N. sanctions over its long-range missile tests and vowed retaliation against Washington "thousands of times."

   "(Enemies) should not forget that we are ready to ruthlessly take strategic measures involving physical actions by fully mobilizing our national power," a spokesman at the committee was quoted as saying by the North's official Korean Central News Agency.

The Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee is an agency affiliated with the Workers' Party of Korea.

North Korea on Monday warned of a stern action of justice against the U.S., accusing Washington of committing heinous crimes against the North and its people.

The UNSC on Saturday adopted fresh sanctions on North Korea following its two tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) in July.

The measures, including a ban on all exports of coal, are aimed at slashing the North's annual export revenue of US$3 billion by a third. The sanctions resolution marked the eighth of its kind since 2006, when the North conducted its first nuclear test.

North Korea reiterated that it will not put its nuclear weapons on the negotiation table, pledging to stick to its signature policy of seeking nuclear armament and economic development, commonly known as the "byongjin" policy.

Tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula are running high as North Korea has kept staging its provocative acts despite Seoul and Washington's warning of tough sanctions and pressure.

In a separate statement, the repressive regime condemned South Korean marines' latest live-fire drills near the tense western sea border with North Korea.

"(South Korea) should not run amok, bearing in mind that we can turn western front-line islands and even Seoul into a sea of flame," the Korean Central News Agency said.

South Korean marines fired a Spike surface-to-surface missile and more than 200 artillery rounds from K9 self-propelled howitzers Monday as part of its routine exercise.

An official at Seoul's unification ministry urged North Korea to choose the path toward denuclearization.

"If North Korea does not cease its provocations, it will face tougher sanctions," the official said. "The government plans to make efforts to resolve North Korea's nuclear issue peacefully and diplomatically."

Russia downplays North Korea's saber-rattling, tells US to be 'prudent'

Russia's top diplomat downplayed North Korea's nuclear saber-rattling following a diplomatic summit Tuesday, and said the United States has to take "prudent" steps to deescalate the crisis.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov emphasized that North Korea always complains about sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council. The regime threateneda "physical" response to the new sanctions and warned South Korea it has the ability turn "Seoul into a sea of flame," but Lavrov betrayed little alarm.

"Strictly speaking, this is how representatives of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea have reacted to all previous U.N. Security Council resolutions," he told reporters Tuesday following an east Asia diplomatic summit in the Philippines. "We will judge by their actions."

Lavrov's response was consistent with the ambivalent rhetoric from Russian and Chinese representatives at the U.N. Security Council after both countries supported a U.S.-drafted resolution imposing new sanctions on North Korea. Despite that apparent agreement, they faulted the United States for conducting military exercises with South Korea and deploying a new missile defense system to the region.

"All must understand that progress towards denuclearization of the Korean peninsula will be difficult so long as [the North Korean regime] perceives a direct threat to its own security," Vasily Nebenzia, Russian ambassador to the U.N., told the council Saturday. "For that is how the North Koreans view the military build up in the region, which takes on the forms of frequent, wide-ranging exercises and maneuvers of the U.S. and allies as they deploy strategic bombers, naval forces, and aircraft carriers."

North Korea's top diplomat used those talking points in response to the new sanctions, and said that "possession of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles is a legitimate option for self-defense in the face of a clear and real nuclear threat posed by the US," per CNN.

Lavrov reiterated Russia's desire for the United States to start direct talks with the North Koreans and other countries in the region.

"We are confident that there is no alternative to the resumption of the political process, in particular the six-party talks," he said Tuesday. "We will certainly continue our dialogue with our North Korean neighbors. We expect that with the prudent approach of all players, naturally including the United States, the Republic of Korea and Japan, we will be able to find a solution that suits all parties."

President Trump's team wants to use sanctions to force North Korea to negotiate an elimination of their nuclear program.

"We don't think having a dialogue where the North Koreans come to the table assuming they're going to maintain their nuclear weapons is productive," Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters last week. "We would like to sit and have a dialogue with them about the future that will give them the security they seek and the future economic prosperity for North Korea, but that will then promote economic prosperity throughout Northeast Asia."
