A senior North Korean military official said that recent tests of defense technology are aimed at subduing nuclear threats from the United States on Saturday, APA reports citing Reuters. 

Chief of the General Staff Pak Jong Chon warned that “hostile forces”, including the United States, should refrain from provoking North Korea if they wanted to see a peaceful New Year, state news agency KCNA said.

The statement came hours after North Korea said it had conducted a second test at a satellite and rocket engine facility.
