Kerry warns 'provocative' N. Korea of fresh sanctions

South Korean President Park Geun-hye and US Secretary of State John Kerry speak prior to a meeting at the Blue House in Seoul, on May 18, 2015US Secretary of State John Kerry warned North Korea Monday of possible fresh sanctions as he slammed Kim Jong-Un’s “egregious” leadership with its reliance on reckless provocation and “grotesque” executions. Speaking in the South Korean capital Seoul, Kerry said the recent test of a new submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) showed that North Korea had no genuine interest in engaging with the international community. “That is why it is important for us to ramp up international pressure for North Korea to change its behaviour,” he added, adding that the US and China were discussing methods for “boosting sanctions and other things”. Just over a week ago the North said it had successfully test-fired an SLBM, defying a UN ban on its use or testing of ballistic missile technology.
