The White House warned North Korea on Monday that Barack Obama will stand firm in opposing the North's nuclear progams and dismissed Pyongyang's atomic defiance as a childish tantrum.

"It's not surprising that they would bang their spoons on their high chair to try to get attention," spokeswoman Dana Perino said after the North said it may keep its nuclear arms and threatened confrontation with South Korea.
