North Korea’s Chief of the General Staff Pak Jong Chon called the United States among “hostile forces,” urging these forces to stop provoking Pyongyang, state’s KCNA reported.
Chon on Saturday December 14th claimed that the latest tests of defence technology sought to face nuclear threats from the US. He said that having a peaceful New Year requires stopping provoking North Korea.
North Korea state media said earlier on Saturday that another "crucial test" had been conducted at its Sohae satellite launch site. The test came as nuclear negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington remain stalled with a deadline approaching.
