North Korea has nothing to fear from any US move to broaden sanctions aimed at cutting it off from the global financial system and will pursue “acceleration” of its nuclear and missile programmes, according to a senior diplomat.
This includes developing a “pre-emptive first strike capability” and an inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM), said Choe Myong-nam, deputy ambassador at the DPRK (North Korean) mission to the United Nations in Geneva.
The Trump administration is considering sweeping sanctions as part of a broad review of measures to counter North Korea’s nuclear and missile threat, a senior US official in Washington told Reuters on Monday.
“I think this is stemming from the visit by the secretary of state [Rex Tillerson] to Japan, South Korea and China … We of course are not afraid of any act like that,” Choe told Reuters.
