NORTH KOREA’S claim that new UN Sanctions were an “act of war” shows “rhetoric” and “desperation”, according to international relations expert Dr Kiron Skinner.

North Korea will be unable to use “nuclear blackmail” as revenge on the UN’s latest sanctions, Dr Skinner said.

Pyongyang attempted to fight back after the United Nations Security Council imposed tough new sanctions on the hermit nation following its continued missile testing.

The resolution seeks to ban nearly 90 per cent of refined petroleum product exports to North Korea – a resolution which North Korea labelled an “act of war”.

Speaking to Fox News, Ms Skinner said: “North Korea is out of options in terms of retaliation because it attempts to play nuclear blackmail.

“The problem with using that type of lack of diplomacy, if you will, is that you have no other options below.

“So, what can it do to the world but threaten some kind of nuclear manoeuvre that would immediately hurt the Chinese, of which it is attached to territorially.

“I think it’s just really rhetoric and desperation.”

In a statement responding to the sanctions, the North Korea foreign ministry said: “We define this ‘sanctions resolution’ rigged up by the US and its followers as a grave infringement upon the sovereignty of our Republic, as an act of war violating peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region and categorically reject the ‘resolution’.
