North Korea, condemning recent UNSC meeting, warns of looming “countermeasure”
Foreign ministry spokesperson reiterates Pyongyang now has "nothing to lose"

North Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) on Thursday condemned a recent United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting regarding its recent spate of missile testing, in a statement warning that the country was preparing to take countermeasures in response to the U.S.'s "bandit-like" behavior.

In a statement carried by the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), a spokesperson for the North's foreign ministry cited yesterday's meeting of the UNSC as proof that, despite its calls for Pyongyang to return to dialogue, Washington seeks to "disarm us completely."
