North Korea threatens response if new UNSC resolution adopted

North Korea vague on potential response, but states it can "annihilate" the U.S.

North Korea threatened to take “corresponding” actions should the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) passes a further resolution in response to the DPRK’s recent Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) launch, on Friday, in a statement from its foreign ministry.

The statement, carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) quotes an unnamed spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and while no specifics on the measures are provided, the statement references ICBM and nuclear capabilities.
