An unnamed North Korean official has made the call that the state should be recognized as a “legitimate” nuclear weapon holding country.

“Obama is trying hard to deny the DPRK (North Korea)’s strategic position as a legitimate nuclear-weapon state, but it is as foolish an act as trying to eclipse the sun with a palm,” a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman in Pyongyang was quoted by the official KCNA news agency as saying.

He then continued by scoffing at the possibility of sanctions being imposed on the country.

“The group of Obama’s running around and talking about meaningless sanctions until today is highly laughable, when their ‘strategic patience’ policy is completely worn out and they are close to packing up to move out,” he said.

Russia’s Foreign Minister however urged for other methods in dealing with North Korea be found other than sanctions.

“The current situation shows that diplomats should be more creative than just responding by sanctions, sanctions and sanctions again on any aggravation of the situation,” said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a joint news conference with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Geneva, Switzerland, on Saturday.
