SEOUL (Reuters – North Korea claimed Thursday that the United States overreacted to the recent test of its missiles and questioned Washington’s sincerity in offering talks.

According to the official KCNA news agency, the test of a ballistic missile launched from a submerged submarine this week was part of North Korea’s long-term and mid-term plans to bolster its self defense.

The spokesperson stated that Washington made “overly provocative” moves by calling the test an offense to U.N. Security Council resolutions, and a threat regional peace and stability.

The Security Council met Wednesday to discuss the launch. Britain and the United States requested that the Security Council meet. On Wednesday, Pyongyang was urged by the U.S. ambassador to make offers for negotiations, while reiterating Washington’s non-hostile intent towards it.

According to the spokesperson from foreign ministry, America’s double standards in missile development raise doubts about its intentions.

The spokesperson for the United States stated in a statement made by KCNA that it was a double standard to denounce us for testing and developing the same weapons systems that they already have or were developing.

According to the spokesperson, both the United States and Council could be subject to “more serious and severe consequences” for choosing wrong behavior. He warned against “fiddling and using a time bomb.”
