The diplomat stressed that Washington would not accept any accusations against its defensive actions in response to North Korean threats.

She finished off that the United States is open to dialogue with the North Korean authorities, despite the lack of contacts.

“Nevertheless, the United States will not remain indifferent while the DPRK directly threatens the United States, our allies and the whole world,” Thomas-Greenfield quotes RIA Novosti as saying.

Yesterday it became known that North Korea launched a ballistic missile.

In response, South Korea and the United States tested four ground-to-ground missiles.
