PYONGYANG, April 17 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Tuesday said it now wasn't obliged to a major deal with the United States and would continue to launch satellites, the official KCNA news agency said.

The DPRK also rejected a latest UN Security Council presidential statement condemning its satellite launch, the agency cited a foreign ministry official as saying.

The official said the DPRK would continue to explore space for peace purposes, and develop satellite launching skills necessary for the country's economic development.

The official stressed the DPRK would no longer be confined by the Feb. 29 U.S.-DPRK agreement, as the Unites States had completely breached it with confrontational acts.
