North Korea threatens nuclear, missile tests

April 29, 2009 11:13

North Korea has threatened to conduct nuclear and missile tests in anger over UN criticism of its rocket launch earlier this month. Pyongyang's Foreign Ministry said in a statement Wednesday that the country "will be compelled to take measures for self-defense, including nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests" unless the UN Security Council apologizes immediately. The Council adopted a statement earlier this month denouncing the North's April 5 rocket launch and calling for tightening sanctions. North Korea conducted its first-ever nuclear test in 2006.
