SEOUL, Aug. 7 (Yonhap) -- North Korea on Monday condemned the United Nations Security Council (UNSC)'s fresh sanctions, vowing to retaliate against the U.S. if Washington keeps its hostile policy toward it.

North Korea warned in a statement that it is ready to use any ultimate means if the U.S. does not give up its moves to stifle Pyongyang.

The UNSC on Saturday adopted fresh sanctions on North Korea following its tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles in July. The measures, including a ban on all exports of coal, are aimed at slashing the North's annual export revenue of US$3 billion by a third.
