If the United States and its minions go on a naval blockade of Korea, then, as we have already warned many times, we will consider it as military action against us and take tough retaliatory measures of self-defense- noted the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK, a statement which leads RIA News.
Pyongyang also called on the international community to learn more about US maneuvers on the Korean Peninsula.
On Friday, the UN Security Council will convene at a ministerial meeting in New York to discuss tougher sanctions measures against the DPRK, including a proposal to impose a naval blockade in connection with the continuation of Pyongyang’s nuclear missile program.
In 2017, the DPRK conducted 20 ballistic missile launches. In response to the tests conducted, the UN Security Council decided to introduce a sanction regime. In addition, the United States and its allies regularly carry out large-scale naval exercises on the Korean Peninsula.
