North Korean Ruling Party Compares Possible US Maritime Blockade with Declaring War

The naval blockade was also pushed for by Washington
"The [possible] maritime blockade by the United States is an absolutely unacceptable violation of state sovereignty… We will view the maritime blockade by the United States and their allies as an act of aggression against North Korea's sovereignty and as yet another official declaration of war," the Rodong Sinmun, which is the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the North Korean Workers' Party, said Sunday.


In the wake of the latest missile launch by North Korea in late November, US State Secretary Rex Tillerson said that "the international community must take additional measures to enhance maritime security, including the right to interdict maritime traffic transporting goods to and from" North Korea, Sputnik reported.

The naval blockade was also pushed for by Washington during the discussion of sanctions against North Korea in September, but the provision was not included in the resolution since China and Russia opposed such measures.
