May 29, 2009 11:40

North Korea said on Friday that it would take further "self-defense" measures if provoked by the UN Security Council, which is discussing how to punish the regime for its nuclear test. Pyongyang's Foreign Ministry also said in a statement that the country would not recognize any Security Council resolutions unless the council first apologizes for criticizing Pyongyang's April 5 rocket launch. "It will be inevitable for us to take further self-defense measures" if the council provokes the North, the statement said. Tensions have been running high after the North conducted its second nuclear test and missile launches this week.
