‘REVENGE WILL BE THOUSAND FOLD’ North Korea vows to attack America as Kim Jong-un demands ‘justice’ for Donald Trump trying to ‘isolate and stifle’ his country

New sanctions ban Kim Jong-Un’s country exporting coal, iron, lead and seafood in joint US and South Korea ‘crack down’

NORTH Korea has threatened “thousands-fold” revenge against the United States for banning exports worth $1billion following its intercontinental ballistic launches.

Crackpot leader Kim Jong-un is demanding “justice” over Donald Trump’s attempts to “isolate and stifle” his country with ban on exporting coal, iron, lead and seafood.

The tough new U.N. sanctions could slash North Korea’s $3 billion annual export revenue by a third.

State-controlled media carried a statement from the North that promised the move would never force the country to negotiate over its nuclear program – or to give up its nuclear drive.

It says it will take “action of justice” but didn’t elaborate.

It’s after US President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed to apply maximum pressure and sanctions on North Korea in a telephone call on Monday.

The U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea on Saturday aimed at pressuring Pyongyang to end its nuclear programme.

The U.S.-drafted resolution bans North Korean exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood following Pyongyang’s two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July.

It also prohibits countries from increasing the current numbers of North Korean labourers working abroad, bans new joint ventures with North Korea and any new investment in current joint ventures.

North Korea denounced the sanctions, saying they infringed on its sovereignty and vowed to take “righteous action”, according to the North’s official news agency.

Pyongyang would never place its nuclear programme on the negotiating table as long as the United States maintained a hostile policy against the North, the government statement reported by KCNA said.
