NORTH Korea has condemned US plans for a naval blockade and warned Washington it would be tantamount to “war acts”.

After a flurry of North Korean missile tests this year, a growing number of sanctions have been imposed on the secretive state in a bid to quell the growing tensions on the Korean peninsula.

However, the missile test on November 29 suggested Pyongyang has no plans to give up its nuclear and missile programmes and fresh efforts are being made to find a way to bring the situation under control.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently mentioned the “right to interdict maritime traffic transporting goods” to and from the North, which would cut off the country’s supply routes without resorting to military action.

This move has also been discussed in South Korea, with officials desperate to avoid conflict because of the unimaginable loss of life on both sides of the Korean peninsula.

North Korea’s state-run news agency KCNA has hit out at the plans and said any naval blockade would be considered an act of war.

It reported: “The US moves for sea blockade can never be tolerated as they constitute a wanton violation of the sovereignty and dignity of an independent state.

“The US is trying to openly take the measure of sea blockade against the DPRK and strangle its economy in peace time.

“This is part of its scheme to escalate political and economic blockade against the DPRK which has lasted for decades.”
