North Korea promises “decisive act of justice” in response to new sanctions

DPRK government says U.S. has committed a "heinous crime" against the country

The North Korean government on Monday condemned Saturday's new sanctions by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and promised retaliation, in a statement carried by the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

Accusing the U.S. of violating "our sovereignty and right to survive and develop," the DPRK government promised a "decisive act of justice" against Washington and nations which supported the new measures.
