As global pressure ratchets up against North Korea with a new package of sanctions, the rogue nation is blaming the United States and threatening “ultimate measures” in response. The U.N. Security Council unanimously approved the new sanctions over the weekend, which are aimed at cutting roughly a third of North Korea’s annual export revenue. Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., called the package the most stringent in a generation. … North Korea has responded to the sanctions with characteristically strong rhetoric. “We will balance the U.S.’s felonious crime against our country and our people with something thousands of times worse, and if the U.S. does not retract its attempts to crush us to death and behave prudently, we will be ready and not hesitate to take ultimate measures,” the government said in a statement published by the state-run KCNA news agency.
