 The DPRK condemned the US missile test and said it would reconsider steps to build trust with the US.


Earlier, as part of efforts to maintain dialogue between North Korea and the United States, North Korea had stopped testing nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles. A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry questioned the restraint in a statement reported by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), Reuters reported Wednesday.

The spokesman said: Our patience is limited, there is no legal provision, anything we have so far restrained will continue indefinitely. He condemned the UN Security Councils unfairness in dealing with North Koreas self-defense issue. In fact... This prompts us to reconsider the key steps we have taken to build trust with the United States.

The spokesman referred to the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile launched by the U.S. Air Force this month. In his view, the U.S. nuclear test is clearly to put pressure on North Korea.

DPRK National Defense Academy successfully test-fired a new type of Polaris-3 submarine-launched ballistic missile from the waters of Yuanshan Bay on the east coast on the morning of October 2, KCNA reported Wednesday. North Korea launches ballistic missiles in violation of UN Security Council sanctions against North Korea.

On October 3, Britain, France and Germany asked the United Nations Security Council to hold a closed-door meeting to respond to North Koreas 2-day test-firing of submarine-launched missiles, urging North Korea to take concrete steps to abandon its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile program in a comprehensive, verifiable and irreversible manner. The Permanent Mission of the DPRK to the United Nations strongly protested and accused the United States of behind the scenes.

According to Yonhap News Agency on the 8th, North Korea and the United States resumed talks on denuclearization in Stockholm, Sweden, on October 5, but the talks ended in disruption.
