North Korea is considering "restarting all temporarily-suspended activities," which could include nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests, state-run Korean Central News Agency reported Thursday.

In a meeting on Wednesday, the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea – the party’s highest decision making body – "reassigned the policy tasks for the national defense of immediately bolstering more powerful physical means which can efficiently control the hostile moves of the US against the DPRK" (North Korea’s official name).

It also urged to "reconsider in an overall scale the trust-building measures that we took on our own initiative" during talks with South Korea and the United States aimed at easing tensions in the Korean Peninsula and "to promptly examine the issue of restarting all temporarily-suspended activities."
