North Korea: New UN sanctions an act of war

North Korea has described the latest UN sanctions imposed on the country as an "act of war".
A foreign ministry statement said the measures were tantamount to a total economic blockade, the official KCNA news agency reported.
It added that strengthening North Korea's deterrence was the only way to frustrate the US.
The UN Security Council imposed the new sanctions in response to Pyongyang's ballistic missile tests.
The US-drafted resolution includes measures to slash North Korea's petrol imports by up to 90%.
North Korea is already subject to a raft of sanctions from the US, the UN and the EU.
