North Korea vows to end ceasefire in response to UN sanctions

North Korea announced that the 1953 Korean War ceasefire may come to an end because of the sanctions and ongoing pressure from the UN on their nuclear program.

North Korea’s Korean People’s Army Supreme Command made the statement Tuesday amid reports that Washington and North Korean ally Beijing have approved a draft of punishing resolutions that is expected to be circulated among UN Security Council members this week.

The February 12 nuclear test was the third and the US (and other countries) worry that North Korea is pushing closer toward its goal of having nuclear-armed missiles that can reach America.

North Korea says its nuclear program is a response to U.S. hostility.

The 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty, leaving the Korean Peninsula still technically in a state of war.
