- North Korea slams the U.S. for "state sponsor of terrorism" label.
- "The US will be held entirely accountable for all the consequences" for their actions.
- Trump previously accused North Korea of "acts of international terrorism, including assassinations on foreign soil".
North Korea has fired back at the United States of America after they were added to a list of "state
sponsors of terrorism" claiming that the move is a serious provocation.
The North Korean government also reaffirmed that the provocation will further strengthen their resolve to commit to their nuclear development programme.
"Our army and people are full of rage and anger towards the heinous gangsters who dared to put the name of our sacred country in this wretched list of 'terrorism'," the state-run Korean Central News Agency quoted an unidentified foreign ministry spokesman as saying.
The foreign ministry spokesman said the state sponsor of the terrorism label was "just a tool for American-style authoritarianism that can be attached or removed at any time in accordance with its interests".
"The US will be held entirely accountable for all the consequences to be entailed by its impudent provocation to the DPRK," he said, using the initials of its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said North Korea was not only threatening the world with "nuclear devastation" but it also was responsible for repeatedly supporting "acts of international terrorism, including assassinations on foreign soil".
