NORTH KOREA (CNN)—Officials say North Korea is threatening to nullify the armistice agreement that ended the Korean War in 1953.

The threats come after North Korean leaders say the U.S. led the way in an attempt to impose new sanctions over the country because of its recent nuclear test.

The U.N. Security Council is expected to meet Tuesday to consider a proposed resolution to authorize more sanctions against North Korea in response to the regime’s nuclear test last month.

Now the world is waiting to see what China, who is known supporter of the communist country, will say during the council meeting.

China has said it supports the U.N. Security Council’s condemnation of the nuclear tests but also called for a muted response to it.
