North Korea accused the Obama administration of hostility and is vowing to bolster its nuclear arsenal. Pyongyang's Foreign Ministry said Friday that the regime will follow through on plans to "further strengthen our nuclear deterrent." The ministry cites what it calls the "hostile policy" of President Barack Obama's administration, mentioning its push to have the United Nations censure North Korea following its April 5 rocket launch.
