Foreign ministers from the G-8 nations on Thursday condemned North Korea’s aggressive rhetoric and the development of its nuclear missile programs, saying that Pyongyang’s recent actions threaten international security. British foreign secretary William Hague told a press conference that if North Korea conducts another missile launch or nuclear test, the G-8 ministers have “committed ourselves” to take further “significant measures” — such as asking for more sanctions at the United Nations Security Council.

His remarks came just hours after North Korea delivered a fresh burst of rhetoric with claims it had “powerful striking means” on standby amid speculation that it is preparing to test a medium-range missile during an upcoming national celebration in the country.
