According to reports of Japanese and South Korean agencies, on Saturday Ambassador Tsoi Din Su of the People's Democratic Republic of Korea stated in Beijing that North Korea threatened to resume missile tests while accusing the USA "of violations of all agreements achieved between North Korea and the USA." The diplomat reported to journalists that the present PDRK unilateral moratorium on missile tests was announced in the hope to stop the US hostile approach to North Korea and to improve relations between the two countries. Meanwhile, presently, Tsoi Din Su said, Pyongyang might "terminate the missiles' launch moratorium." The warning was made immediately after North Korea announced its withdrawal from the Treaty on the Non-proliferation of Nuclear Weapons in connection with the pressure exerted by the USA, which accused North Korea of attempts to create an atomic bomb. Pyongyang assures that it does not intend to do that, and that it resumed the nuclear program for peaceful purposes.
