No one wants war on the Korean Peninsula –Lavrov
China calls for constructive efforts to ease Korean tensions
KCNA: "Whether it took the DPRK as a weak nation or a subject country which moves at the beck and call of a big power or as a government which would collapse out of its own accord, it is all prompted by the U.S. ignorance of the DPRK…and arrogance looking down on others."
KCNA: "The U.S. has so far drunken bitter cups in decades of stand-off with the DPRK because it took the DPRK wrong."
KCNA: "We love peace, but do not allow the provocateurs to come out in confrontation and war. The DPRK's warning is not hot air. Whoever dares provoke the DPRK even a bit will not be able to escape the merciless retaliatory strike."
North Korea named the new sanctions voted by the UN Security Council as "an act of war"
DPRK foreign ministry declares America has made a "fatal blunder" by miscalculating that sanctions can check North Korea's nuclear force and its rocket power "capable of coping with any nuclear war against the US."
KCNA: "If the U.S. wishes to live safely, it must abandon its hostile policy towards the DPRK and learn to co-exist with the country that has nuclear weapons and should wake up from its pipe dream of our country giving up nuclear weapons."
KCNA: "Those countries that raised their hands in favor of this 'sanctions resolution' shall be held completely responsible for all the consequences to be caused by the 'resolution' and we will make sure for ever and ever that they pay heavy price for what they have done."
KCNA: "The United States, completely terrified at our accomplishment of the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force, is getting more and more frenzied in the moves to impose the harshest-ever sanctions and pressure on our country."
