According to Pyongyang, the veto shows that Washington is applying double standards.

"The U.S. abuse of veto power to protect an ally is not only a demonstration of illegal and meaningless double standards, but it is also the height of inhuman evil," said North Korea's Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Sung-gyong in charge of international organizations. His statement was circulated by the North Korean news agency KCNA.

According to Kim, the United States contradicts itself by tolerating the conflict in Gaza while condemning North Korea's recent launch of a reconnaissance satellite, which has done no harm to anyone.

National security advisers from the United States, South Korea and Japan met on Tuesday to discuss again coordinating the three countries' response to threats coming from North Korea, which warned it could launch more reconnaissance satellites.
