North Korea threatens U.S. with nation's 'invincible physical power'

Former US Vice President Joe Biden speaks during the First State Democratic Dinner in Dover Delaware

"What we're seeing from Pyongyang in terms of these provocations does nothing to shake the resolve of our three countries along with allies and partners around the world to approach North Korea from a position of strength in order to diminish the threat that it poses to the region and beyond", Blinken said. The tests came as a response to renewed regional military drills between the US and South Korea.

The DPRK confirmed on Friday that it had launched a "newly developed new-type tactical guided projectile" a day earlier, which was the country's first ballistic missile test reported in almost a year.

The United States, South Korea and others condemned North Korea over its firings of two ballistic missile launches into the sea, the first such weapons tests in a year.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga called the two weapons launched from North Korea's east coast ballistic missiles, which it is banned from developing under UN Security Council resolutions. The council is also expected to hold closed-door discussions on North Korea today.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, has come out against the Biden administration for continuing joint military exercises with South Korea. "If the war exercise staged by the USA right before its belligerent party across the ocean is for 'defense, ' we are supposed to have the full-fledged right to self-defense to contain the former's military threat on its mainland", Ri continued.

Pyongyang had been biding its time since the new administration took office in Washington, not even officially acknowledging its existence until last week. "If the United States continues with its thoughtless remarks without thinking of the consequences, it may be faced with something that is not good". "If the U.S. continues with its thoughtless remarks without thinking of the consequences, it may be faced with something that is not good", he added.

'We know very well what we must do, ' he said. The country had last launched a pair of short-range ballistic missiles in March 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mr Ri said Washington insisted on a "gangster-like logic" to be able to bring strategic nuclear assets to South Korea and test intercontinental ballistic missiles at its convenience but ban North Korea from testing even a tactical weapon.

During the Thursday news conference, Biden blasted the tests and promised that his administration would "respond accordingly" if Pyongyang chooses to carry out any additional tests. The State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Before entering now-stalled nuclear talks with the United States in 2018, Kim Jong Un called then President Donald Trump "the mentally deranged USA dotard" after Trump called him a "little rocket man".
