North Korea: Terror relisting 'disgraceful behavior' by Trump

A spokesperson for North Korea's foreign ministry, said, USA government's decision shows, how it is "just a tool for American style authoritarianism that can be attached or removed at any time in accordance with its interests", Sky News reported. During a public meeting at the Treasury Department, President Trump said, "Today the United States is designating the North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism" and added that it "s$3 hould have happened a long time ago".

The report chillingly warns: "North Korea lacks a clear distinction between the use of nuclear weapons against military targets and their use against civilian targets".

"This designation will impose further sanctions and penalties on North Korea and related persons and supports our maximum pressure campaign to isolate the murderous regime".

China, the North's sole ally, rejected the new sanctions as "wrong" on Wednesday.

The order from the U.S. Treasury Department sanctioning a 13 Chinese and North Korean companies and agencies and 20 vessels owned by North Korea added substance to the words of Trump as he denounced North Korea for spreading terror at home and overseas.

The sanctions are on trade and labor contractors, including a North Korean company that has operated in China, Cambodia, Poland, and Russian Federation.

Trump in restoring North Korea to the terror list criticized his predecessor, Barack Obama, for not having taken such a bold move during his eight years on office.

Some North Korea analysts argue the state sponsor of terrorism designation and new sanctions could encourage a return to testing and belligerence from Pyongyang and discourage it from entering talks.

In the country's first public response to its return to the American blacklist, the official Korean Central News Agency said North Korea has no connection to terrorism and does not care "whether the USA puts a cap of "terrorism" on us or not".

USA diplomats responsible for negotiating with the North Koreans in previous years were by and large supportive of strong sanctions - and also of calling North Korea a "terror state".

Trump on Tuesday said North Korea was not only threatening the world with "nuclear devastation" but it also was responsible for repeatedly supporting "acts of worldwide terrorism, including assassinations on foreign soil".
