N Korea Plans Third Nuclear Test

  • North Korea’s National Defense Commission said that in preparation for an “all-out action” against the United States, the country is likely to launch a third set of long-range rockets. The statement was made against the United States which the Commission called “the enemy of the Korean people” and against the United Nations which tightened sanctions against the Asian country in retaliation to last month’s rocket launch. The Korean Central News Agency which ran the news did not announce a time frame for the tests. The announcement has also been considered a backlash of Washington’s endorsement of the UN resolution and reaffirmation of its opposition to North Korea’s development of a nuclear arsenal.
