Pyongyang condanna la risoluzione con cui il Consiglio di Sicurezza dell’Onu ha varato nuove sanzioni contro la Corea del Nord. Sanzioni che sono il "prodotto di una scellerata provocazione". Ad affermarlo è il ministero degli esteri di Pyongyang che accusa: si tratta di misure “imposte alle autorità e ai cittadini e che violano il nostro diritto di difesa”. Per la Corea del Nord si tratta di un tentativo di minare la sovranità nazionale. “Non ci fermeranno, la strada intrapresa è giusta”.

Pyongyang condemns the latest resolution of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), which toughened the sanctions against North Korea after its recent nuclear test, the country's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday in a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). On Monday, the United Nations Security Council unanimously agreed to boost sanctions against North Korea, introducing ban on the country's textile exports and a cap on crude oil imports, while also forbidding imports of all condensates and natural gas liquids. "North Korea strongly condemns and categorically renounces Resolution 2375 of the UNSC about sanctions, which is a result of a repugnant provocation, aimed at depriving North Korea of its right to self-defense and at fully strangling the state and its citizens through a full-scale economic blockade," the statement read. The country's Foreign Ministry stressed that the latest resolution showed to North Korea that "the road it had chosen was the right one."
