Recommended Posts

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- A North Korean spokesman for Foreign Minister Ri Su Yong warned of a "Second Korean War" and blasted "U.S. hegemony" in the Asia-Pacific region while defending Pyongyang's right to satellite launches.

Former North Korean Deputy Ambassador to the U.N. Ri Dong Il made his remarks in Kuala Lumpur after a ministerial meeting was held at the ASEAN Regional Forum on Thursday, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported.

"In order to protect North Korean sovereignty and its people from a nuclear disaster, we have no choice but to resort to measures of self-defense," Ri said, according to South Korean newspaper Hankyoreh.

When asked about the possibility of a fourth nuclear test, Ri said that decision "depends on U.S. attitudes."
