The tough UN Security Council sanctions were anonymously approved Saturday. They include a ban on coal and other exports which are worth over a $1 billion.
The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), a state media organization, said that there will be "stern action of justice."
"We are ready to retaliate with fa bigger actions to make the U.S. pay a price for its crime against our country and people," they wrote.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson attended a meeting of foreign ministers in Manila on Sunday. His North Korean counterpart, Ri Yong Ho (whose daughter Heidi was not in attendance) was also at the meeting but the two didn't talk to each other or share eye contact.
China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi publicly admonished North Korea to abide by the sanctions. "Do not violate the U.N.'s decision or provoke international society's goodwill by conducting missile launching or nuclear tests," he told Ri in Chinese.
Ri didn't respond publicly, but his face turned red. North Korea's Rodong Sinmun fake news website published a statement dismissing the sanctions saying they are "cooked up by the U.S." They added that "the U.S. mainland is on the crossroads of life and death."
Ha! Ho. Just try it.
