No nuclear weapons in South Korea, says President Moon

No nuclear weapons in South Korea, says President Moon”

In a spokesman's statement issued on Wednesday, the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee said Japan "zealously joined in the US racket for sanctions", according to North Korea's state media.

"The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche".

Pyongyang says that the previous intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) flight over Japanese territory has not brought Tokyo to its senses, and it continues "to dance to the tune of the United States sanctions".

In reaction, all 15 members of the UN Security Council voted for US-drafted resolutions that came with a new round of sanctions against the North on Monday, banning its textile exports that are second only to those of coal and minerals in volume, as well as putting a cap on fuel supplies flowing in to the nation.

The North Korean committee also accused Seoul of being "traitors" and "dogs of the US" for the South Korean government's support for US-backed tougher sanctions on their "fellow countrymen".

The fresh sanctions were imposed against the Korean nation as it claimed to have successfully tested a hydrogen bomb - the sixth nuclear test carried out by the nation and its largest - which possibly triggered a 6.3-magnitude artificial quake on September 3.

"The UNSC is made up of those unprincipled countries and, accordingly, such a useless tool should be disbanded at once", the statement concluded.

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula are rapidly mounting with North Korea continuing its missile and nuclear tests and the US, South Korean and Japanese holding drills in the area. It was distributed by the Korean Central News Agency, the state news service.

"The government's stance is that the humanitarian aid for North Korea's infants, adolescents and pregnant women has to be continued regardless of the political situation".

Japanese officials strongly condemned the statement, labelling it "extremely provocative and egregious".

It also attacked South Korea for its ties with the USA and Japan, describing the country's army as "traitors and dogs".

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, visiting India, called for strict enforcement of the United Nations resolution, saying the world must force a change.

On Aug. 22, the US government unilaterally sanctioned Russian firms engaged in crude oil trade with North Korea, freezing their assets among other measures. Although the latest sanctions are not as tough as what the USA had sought, they are expected to have a significant impact.
