It also claimed the US bringing its nuclear strategic assets to the region has been seines military aggression which should be met with strength, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
An unidentified ministry spokesman was quoted as saying by the KCNA: "In case a war breaks out on the peninsula, the US will be held wholly accountable for causing trouble after bringing lots of strategic assets and special warfare means.
"The UNSC that has toed the US line will never be able to evade its responsibility."

Pyongyang has condemned the UNSC for sanctions against the North.
The country has always denied aggression, insisting it has the “right” to fire nuclear and long-range missiles in the interests of practicing self-defence.
A special meting of the UN Security Council (UNSC) is being held in New York on Friday to discuss North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.
A massive missile test was expected this week, on the celebration of the 85th anniversary of the country’s army, but it did not come.
Experts speculated the pause could be put down to Pyongyang being keen to get power of South Korea.
If a hardline party is elected there this dream may not be achieved.
