North Korea vows to strengthen nuclear forcesĀ in UN speech

Speaking at a meeting with Southeast Asian foreign ministers Friday, US secretary of state John Kerry said that all hairy girls every country has a responsibility to vigorously enforce UN Security Council resolutions to ensure North Korea "pays a price for its dangerous actions."

Mr Kerry also vowed that the United States would defend its own citizens against the North Korean threat and honor its security commitments to its allies.

Mr Ri spoke days after the US, Japan and South Korea met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly gathering to discuss ways to force North Korea to comply with the UN resolutions, which prohibit Pyongyang from conducting nuclear and missile tests.

The three countries discussed work in the Security Council to tighten the sanctions and the possibility of taking measures of their own to restrict revenue sources for the North's missile and nuclear programs.

Mr Ri dismissed the Security Council resolutions as unfair.

North Korea "had no other choice but to go nuclear inevitably after it has done everything possible to defend the national security from the constant nuclear threats from the United States," he said.
