(FOX NEWS) SEOUL, South Korea –  North Korea warned Thursday it plans to conduct more long-range rocket launches and carry out a “high-level” nuclear test targeted at the United States in response to a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning its December rocket launch and expanding sanctions.

The National Defense Commission, North Korea’s top military body, denounced Tuesday’s U.N.  resolution to censure and sanction the regime for conducting missile activity that violates U.N. rules, according to a Reuters report.

The commission reaffirmed in its declaration that December’s rocket launch was a peaceful bid to send a satellite into space, but also said the country’s rocket launches have a military purpose: to strike and attack the United States.
