State Department: Conducting another nuclear test in the DPRK will lead to increased sanctions


Such measures could be, for example, “the overlapping of foreign exchange earnings into the country from North Koreans working abroad,” said Russell.

“It's like treating a disease. If the effect is insufficient, the dose increases, ”he said.

According to him, “new sanctions by the UN Security Council, separately by the United States or a group of states from the countries of the European Union and Southeast Asia together with the United States” are also possible.

In addition, "if Pyongyang decides on another nuclear test, the United States, South Korea and Japan will take additional measures of a defensive nature."

Recall, 2 a day ago, the South Korean government reported, citing intelligence, about preparations being made in a neighboring country for another nuclear test.

    For the lovely Korean, the State Department’s statement on tougher sanctions is like a dead poultice ...

    But where else can these sanctions be strengthened? It remains only to shoot all the North Korean diplomats who were not on the territory of the DPRK.

    The USA, like the cannibal-Ellochka, has a very limited vocabulary. Do they know anything else besides the word "sanctions"?

    Pendosia and the DPRK have a small similarity of actions: only some conduct their experiments on their territory, while others conduct their experiments on foreign territories of countries that want to live by their own principles and way of life. It is enviable for them to see that the DPRK does not peel other countries like it makes a penstand.

    tougher measures will be taken against him

    Application of sanctions, tougher sanctions, sanctions at all, etc. - the national chip of the United States. I live as I like, and I force others to live according to the rules established by me. For the DPRK, "tougher measures" are not a threat, but a state of life. They have been under these sanctions ever since they piled on the Americans and the puppet regime.

    Yes, the DPRK has a hell of a lot of problems "they don't need much help," but I don't know how to do it. Their helmsman is already very "funny" 'and are they behaving strangely with China?

    Comrade Eun - a big request to you! Please conduct another test of North Korean nuclear weapons in the Federal District of Columbia and on the banks of the Thames! We beg you!

    I wonder how many tests there will be so many "enhancements" will happen? then I'm afraid to upset the State Department, because there can be many tests, and the sanctions are not unlimited
