North Korean group demands U.S. be turned to 'ashes and darkness'

Kim Jong-un

"The UNSC is made up of those unprincipled countries and, accordingly, such a useless tool should be disbanded at once", the statement concluded. This came following the issuing of fresh United Nations security council sanctions, in response to Pyongyang's recent nuclear test.

The statement added that the four islands of the archipelago should be sunk into the sea.

The Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, a North Korean group that manages the nation's global relations and propaganda, called for disbandment of the UN Security Council, calling it "a tool of evil" consisting of "money-bribed" countries operating on the wishes of the United States.

The UN resolution also barred countries from issuing new authorisations to North Korean workers sent overseas.

The statement from the North Korean state-controlled news agency also had a disturbing message for Japan. "It does sound like USA patience is running out", Ruggiero said.

While the latest sanctions are not as tough as what the United States had sought, they are expected to have a significant impact.

A U.S. official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said intelligence agencies had observed North Korea moving the launcher within the past 48 hours, potentially indicating another looming test. Let's reduce the US mainland into ashes and darkness, ' a statement released by news agency KCNA said. "Let's vent our spite with mobilisation of all retaliation means which have been prepared till now", KCNA cited the committee as saying.

North Korea has threatened to sink Japan and said that the USA should be "beaten to death like a rabid dog".

It said Tokyo should never be forgiven for not offering a honest apology for its "never-to-be-condoned crimes against our people" in an apparent reference to Japan's wartime aggression.

"If North Korea stays the course that it is on, it will increasingly become isolated from the world", Suga said on Thursday.

Tokyo blasted the North Korean statement as "extremely provocative and egregious".

The UN Security Council unanimously imposed an eighth set of sanctions on the North on Monday, banning it from trading in textiles and restricting its oil imports, a week after Pyongyang tested what it said was a hydrogen bomb small enough to fit onto a missile, raising tensions on the peninsula and globally. The US-drafted resolution also called for a cap on the number of North Korean workers allowed overseas as they earn wages which contribute to the reclusive regime.
