North Korea blasted the U.N. Security Council, which includes its allies China and Russia, on Friday for criticizing its nuclear test and warned the country will respond to any new sanctions with further “self-defense measures.”

The warning, issued by the North’s Foreign Ministry, came as the five members of the Security Council, South Korea and Japan were discussing ways to punish the North’s second underground nuclear test Monday.

“Should the U.N. Security Council attempt further provocations, our further self-defense measures will be inevitable in response,” the North said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.

The North called the permanent members of the Security Council — the United States, China, Russia, Britain and France — “hypocrites” for criticizing its rocket launch and nuclear test. The North’s atomic explosion was the 2,054th in the world, with “99.99 percent” of such tests conducted by those five countries, it said.
