Activity at North Korea's Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site

The Korea Asia-Pacific peace committee, which oversees North Korea's relations with the outside world, described the UN Security Council, which passed a new round of sanctions earlier this week, as a "tool of evil" in the pay of Washington, and called for it to be broken up, the Guardian newspaper reported on Thursday.

"The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche", it said, a reference to the regime's ideology of self-reliance.

Reacting to the vote on Thursday, North Korea said the USA ought to "be beaten to death" for spearheading the penalties.

Nuclear-armed North Korea fired a ballistic missile over Japan on August 29 in a major escalation of tensions by Pyongyang.

"These disturbances are more numerous and widespread than seen after any of the North's previous five tests, and include additional slippage in pre-existing landslide scars and a possible subsidence crater", the report says.

In a statement, North Korea responded by calling the actions "state terrorism" and that the "chief culprit" involved in "cooking up the "sanctions resolution", be beaten to death with a stick fit for a rabid dog". "If we respond to the situation with an attitude that we will counter a nuclear-armed North with a nuclear-armed South, peace can not be maintained between the two Koreas", Moon said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un provides guidance with Ri Hong Sop (3rd L) and Hong Sung Mu (L) on a nuclear weapons program in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang September 3, 2017.

The new United Nations sanctions ban North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates and cap imports of crude oil at the level of the last 12 months.

On the same day, South Korea announced it had conducted its first live-fire drill for an advanced air-launched cruise missile that would strengthen its pre-emptive strike capability against North Korea in the event of crisis. Or this from North Korea leader Kim Jong Un just one month later: Pyongyang "can tip new-type intercontinental ballistic rockets with more powerful nuclear warheads and keep any cesspool of evils in the earth, including the United States mainland, within our striking range".

India and Japan today condemned North Korea's nuclear programme as a grave threat to global peace and stressed on holding accountable all parties supporting the reclusive nation's nuclear ambitions, in a veiled reference to Pakistan.

As North Korea holds more frequent and more powerful tests, the South in particular has ramped up its deterrence efforts.
