The country's official newspaper, Rodong Simmun, reported that the huge intake of new military members came after the Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) issued a statement regarding the new United Nations sanctions that were brought in on Monday (7 August).

North Korea has a population of 25 million, with an Army of between 700,000 and 1.3 million members. "If the US and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so".

The measure is part of the new round of sanctions adopted on August 5 by the United Nations Security Council in response to North Korea's nuclear and missile activities in clear violation of previous U.N. Security Council resolutions.

"All the people are rising up across the country to retaliate against the U.S. thousands of times".

I keep saying that. "And I think we're going to reach that level as a football team in the next couple of years". Yet United's starting XI cost €417 million (S$667 million), compared to Real's €273 million.


Mogherini's decision came one day after the Council of the European Union broadened a sanction list targeting the DPRK in response to the northeast Asian country's recent test-launch of ballistic missiles.

"The Chinese border towns offer the closest view you can get of North Korea if you can't get into the country itself", Wen says.

On Aug. 5, the UNSC voted unanimously for fresh sanctions on North Korea following two tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles in July, prompting Pyongyang to warn of a "stern action of justice" against the United States and a missile strike around the U.S. territory of Guam.

State news agency KCNA has reported such mobilisations all over the country on Thursday and Friday.
