N. Korea Warns Seoul Against Sanctions

Posted: Jan 25, 2013


North Korea threatened Seoul with “physical countermeasures” if it takes direct part in new sanctions levied on the communist regime by the UN Security Council this week.

And it reiterated that it is calling off any talks to wind down its nuclear weapons program.

“From now on, there will no longer be denuclearization talks between North and South Korea,” said the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland, a propaganda mouthpiece, in a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency yesterday.

“We proclaim a complete calling off of the Joint Declaration on Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula adopted [by the two Koreas] in 1992. [We] proclaim [the joint declaration] completely invalid.”

The regime also warned Seoul it will take “strong physical counter-measures” if South Korea takes part in the sanctions. It said that imposing sanctions is like “declaring war.”

On Tuesday, the 15-member UN Security Council, the top body of the international organization, adopted a 20-point resolution responding to Pyongyang’s test of a long-range missile on Dec. 12. Previous Security Council resolutions prohibited North Korea from testing its ballistic missile capabilities.
