North Korea says rejects new sanctions, to continue nuclear program.

The sanctions target the North Korean military and include a travel freeze for key senior officials.

The sanctions are “a crafty hostile act with the purpose of putting a curb on [North Korea’s] buildup of nuclear forces, disarming it and causing economic suffocation to it,” a regime representative said in state-run media. “Whatever sanctions and pressure may follow, we will not flinch from the road to build up nuclear forces which was chosen to defend the sovereignty of the country and the rights to national existence and will move forward towards the final victory.”
