A North Korean official said Wednesday that the communist nation would regard sanctions against it after its claimed nuclear test as tantamount to a declaration of war, Yonhap news agency reported. "Sanctions are nonsense. If full-scale sanctions take place, we will regard it as a declaration of war," the Beijin-based official, who wasn't identified, told Yonhap. The statement is a repetition of the North's long-held stance on sanctions. Separately, a North Korean diplomat said that the country's announced nuclear test was smaller in blast force than expected, though asserted Pyongyang was able to detonate a more powerful device, a South Korean newspaper reported Wednesday.
