N. Korea rejects U.N.'s limited sanctions

SEOUL (AP) ? North Korea on Sunday rejected a U.N. Security Council resolution sanctioning the communist nation for recent missile tests and warned the measure was a prelude to a renewed Korean War.
The North also said it would "bolster its war deterrent for self-defense," a typical phrase often used to refer to the country's nuclear weapons program.

After 10 days of debate, the U.N. Security Council unanimously passed a resolution Saturday condemning North Korea's multiple missile launches on July 5. The council demanded that North Korea "suspend all activities related to its ballistic missile program" and re-establish a moratorium on missile launches. It strongly urged North Korea to return to six-party talks on its nuclear program, which have been stalled since last year.

The resolution bans all U.N. member states from selling material or technology for missiles or weapons of mass destruction to North Korea, and from receiving missiles, banned weapons or technology from Pyongyang.

"Our republic vehemently denounces and roundly refutes the 'resolution,' a product of the U.S. hostile policy towards the DPRK, and will not be bound to it in the least," the North's Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency. North Korea is known officially as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or DPRK.
