Sanctions will draw strong physical response, DPRK says

The Democratic People of Republic Korea on Saturday said it would give a strong physical response to US sanctions, Pyongyang's state media reported.

A foreign ministry spokesman attacked the United States for planning to hold joint naval drills with the Republic of Korea Sunday and for announcing new sanctions against the North over the sinking of a South Korean warship in March.

"As the US has opted for military provocations and sanctions against us... we will strengthen our nuclear deterrence every possible way and take a strong physical response," the Korean Central News Agency quoted the spokesman as saying.

The spokesman, however, did not elaborate on what the physical response would be.
