More threats from North Korea as US and China reach deal on sanctions
The statement was made Tuesday amid reports that the U.S. and China have reached a deal on a new set of sanctions against North Korea.
The U.S.-Chinese agreement, which enforces some existing sanctions and includes new ones, will be introduced at a U.N. Security Council meeting on Tuesday.
Beijing`s decision to strike a deal with the U.S. is seen as disapproval of Pyongyang`s behavior and is welcomed in Washington.
China is known to be North Korea’s ally for years, but Pyongyang`s third nuclear weapon test is changing Beijing`s position, especially with the new leadership.
