A North Korean official vows to continue the country's sixth nuclear test if the United Stated of America does not stop what the North Koreans consider as an 'aggressive action.'

American officials from the Trump administration have announced this year that the sanctions against North Korea have been tightened. This happened in the middle of the tensions the two countries are facing because of North Korea's nuclear threats. The US Pacific Command believed that the East Asian country's threats against the US should be taken seriously.

In an interview with CNN on Wednesday, North Korean government official Sok Chol Won, who serves as the director of the country's Institute of Human Rights, vowed that the missile and nuclear tests will continue and will not be affected by the US government's action. The North Korean official further stated that America's supposed deployment of nuclear aircraft carrier strike group through the Korean Peninsula is considered as an 'act of aggression.'

Moreover, he said that if the US continues its hostile actions towards the North Korea, there will reportedly be zero possibility that they will stop their nuclear and missile tests as it has been considered as one of their efforts to strengthen their nuclear forces. US Pacific Command leader, Admiral Harry Harris defended the deployment of the missile-defense system in South Korea.

He spoke to the US Congress, saying that North Korea can possibly attack either US, Japan or South Korea once they can. A strong sense of resolution for the increasing tension between the North Korean government is reportedly very needed, adding that the diplomatic and military resolves are necessary.

President Donald Trump of the US released a statement from the White House after conducting an unusual meeting with the Secretary of State, Pentagon chief and Director of National Intelligence. The statement included the US President's aim to increase the pressure on North Korea or the DPRK, to dismantle its nuclear weapons and missiles, and to resolve the tension through dialogue.
