Py­ongyang warns US

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

LESS than a month af­ter its first in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal bal­lis­tic mis­sile launch on July 4, North Korea has fired off an­other.

The North re­ferred to the test as a warn­ing to the “beast-like US im­pe­ri­al­ists”. State news agency, KCNA, said it sent “a grave warn­ing to the US” that it “would not go scot­free if it dares pro­voke”.

Py­ongyang de­scribed its weapons pro­grammes as a “strate­gic as­set that can­not be bartered for any­thing” which puts on dis­play the North’s “tremen­dous might”. “If the Yan­kees bran­dish the nu­clear stick on this land again... we will clearly teach them man­ners,” KCNA warned. teleSUR
