N. Korea warns US against military force

North Korea says it will take "prompt corresponding actions" if the United States resorts to military force, state media reports, as tensions rise ahead of Pyongyang's year-end deadline for stalled denuclearisation talks.

The statement came on Wednesday just hours after North Korea announced it would convene a rare gathering of top ruling-party officials later this month, and state media showed photos of leader Kim Jong-un taking a second symbolic horse ride on the country's sacred Mt Paektu.
