Pyongyang defies the United States

· A new nuclear test announced ·

North Korea plans to carry out a high level nuclear test that would demonstrate the ability to strike the United States.  The communist regime of Pyongyang thus did not wait to respond to the tightening of sanctions, which was unanimously decided on Tuesday by the United Nations Security Council in connection with the missile launch in December.  After the first  reaction which aired the idea of a new atomic test, in addition to those of 2006 and of 2009, the regime took aim at “the sworn enemy”.  United States territory would well be the aim of long-range ballistic rockets, according to the declaration of the National Defense Commission, the top governing body of the communist country, published by the official Korean Central News Agency.
