North Korea claimed it would take “corresponding measures” against the US in response to Mr Biden’s remarks made during his first address before a joint session of Congress. During the address, Mr Biden said the US would work with its allies to address the “serious threats” from North Korea and Iran.
Kwon Jong-gun, director general of the Department of US Affairs of the Foreign Ministry, said: “It is certain that the US chief executive made a big blunder in the light of the present-day viewpoint.
“Now that what the keynote of the US new DPRK policy has become clear, we will be compelled to press for corresponding measures, and with time the US.”
Mr Kwon added that the US “will face worse and worse crisis beyond control in the near future if it is set to approach the DPRK-US ties, still holding on the outdated policy from Cold War-minded perspective and viewpoint.”
