North Korea’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement early on Monday saying that it was “ready and willing” to respond with its own measures should a new round of sanctions be approved later in the day. Pyongyang is “ready and willing to use any form of ultimate means,” the ministry said in a statement, adding that the country could cause the US “the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history,” DW reported. The UN Security Council was due to vote on Monday afternoon on a draft proposal of sanctions against the reclusive state. Should they be approved, the measures would be the toughest sanctions ever passed against Pyongyang.
