U-N Security Council to Vote on Sanctions Against N. Korea
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The U.N. Security Council is set to vote on a fourth round of sanctions against North Korea this morning in a fresh attempt to rein in its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
That has Pyongyang angry.
North Korea Foreign Ministry is threatening “a pre-emptive nuclear attack” against what it describes as “the strongholds of the aggressors.” North Korea is also upset over U.S.-South Korean military exercises.
The North is not thought to have mastered the ability to produce a warhead small enough to put on a missile capable of reaching the U.S.
Such inflammatory rhetoric is common from North Korea. But it has been coming regularly in recent days. North Korea is angry over the possible sanctions and over upcoming U.S.-South Korean military drills.
