Transcript: North Korea Threatens UN Over Possible New Sanctions

The United Nations Security Council is considering imposing more sanctions against North Korea after the country launched an  intercontinental ballistic missile  earlier this month.

And North Korea isn't happy.

The country's foreign ministry  told the Korean Central News Agency  it will take "corresponding measures" if that happens.

The North called it a "a fatal mistake" to assume it would "tolerate" more sanctions, but it didn't exactly say what it would do in response.

U.S.

Ambassador Nikki Haley has tried to  get China and Russia on board  with a new U.N. resolution that would impose tougher restrictions on North Korea.

The goal is to curb the country's nuclear and long-range missile activities.

According to Reuters , President Donald Trump is now considering putting sanctions on Chinese companies that help North Korea's economy.

But Trump  has blamed China's President Xi Jinping  for not doing enough to stop North Korea. "Probably he could do a little bit more, but we'll find out," Trump said during a press conference.
