North Korea appears to be panicking as the international community tightens the noose with tough, crippling sanctions.
“The U.S.-led racket of brutal sanctions and pressure against the DPRK constitutes contemporary human rights violation and genocide,” the North Korean mission to the United Nations in Geneva said in a statement, accordingto Reuters.
Sanctions “threaten and impede the enjoyment by the people of the DPRK of their human rights in all sectors,” the North Korean mission argued. “All types of anti-human rights and inhumane sanctions against the DPRK should be terminated immediately and thoroughly.”
In response to North Korea’s tests of an intercontinental ballistic missile, the firing of missiles over Japan into the Pacific, and a test of a suspected staged thermonuclear device, the United Nations has imposed the toughest sanctionsever on the North, crippling both exports and imports. The U.S. has also imposed unilateral sanctions on the regime, increasing the pressure.[contentcards url=”http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/04/north-korea-pitches-a-fit-as-sanctions-start-to-take-their-toll/” target=”_blank”]
