North Korea Warns of ‘Pain,’ ‘Suffering’ Over U.N. Sanctions Vote

North Korea threatened “pain and suffering” ahead of a U.N. sanctions vote Monday in New York, according to a statement made by the Hermit Kingdom’s foreign ministry in state media. The Security Council is set to decide about new restrictions for Pyongyang, including an oil embargo. If the U.S. “does rig up the illegal and unlawful ‘resolution,’” the rogue nation will respond in kind and is “willing to use any form of ultimate means.” The statement continued, “The forthcoming measures to be taken by the DPRK will cause the U.S. the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history.”
