North Korea at UN warns of consequences over ship seizure
North Korea on Tuesday said it was watching “every move” by the US government since the latter seized a North Korean ship two weeks ago. North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations warned that “the United States should deliberate and think over the consequences its outrageous acts might have on the future development.”
The seizure marked the first time the US took control of a North Korean ship because it violated international sanctions on the country. US-North Korea relations have significantly deteriorated since the collapse of a February nuclear summit attended by US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jung-un.
