North Korea took a fresh swipe at US President Barack Obama on Monday, saying his administration is no different from that of his predecessor, George W. Bush. The US administration "plays tricks, talking about 'change' and 'multilateral cooperation diplomacy,'" the North's Foreign Ministry said in a statement. Obama's government "is nothing different from the preceding administration which frantically worked to stifle by force other countries which incurred its displeasure," the ministry said. The statement, carried by the official Korean Central News Agency, did not mention Obama or Bush by name and was focused on criticizing the US for joining other countries on the UN Security Council in condemning Pyongyang's rocket launch last month.
