Press Statement by Jo Chol Su, Director-General of International Organizations of the DPRK Foreign Ministry

The UN Security Council, at the instigation of the United States, convened a closed meeting on October 1, where it faulted the self-defensive activities of the DPRK.

At the meeting, the U.S. and its followers like Britain and France painted the test-launch of a hypersonic missile Hwasong-8 conducted by the DPRK as a violation of the UN “resolution”, insisting that it becomes “threats” to the international peace and the security of neighboring countries.

We have never acknowledged the partial and illegal UN “resolution” that seriously encroaches upon the right to existence and development of sovereign states.

President Moon Jae In again proposed the issue of the declaration of the termination of the war on the Korean peninsula at the 76th UN General Assembly.

Answer of Chief of Foreign News Section of Department of Press and Information of DPRK Foreign Ministry

The chief of the Foreign News Section of the Department of Press and Information of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on September 20 as regards the fact that the U.S. decided to transfer the technology of building a nuclear-powered submarine to Australia:

The U.S. has recently established the trilateral security partnership with Britain and Australia, and decided to transfer the technology of building a nuclear-powered submarine to Australia. These are extremely undesirable and dangerous acts which will upset the strategic balance in the Asia-Pacific region and trigger off a chain of nuclear arms race.

It is quite natural that our neighboring countries including China condemned these actions as irresponsible ones of destroying the peace and stability of the region and the international nuclear non-proliferation system and of catalyzing the arms race.

Press Statement by Jo Chol Su, Director-General of International Organizations Department of Foreign Affairs of DPRK

The United States intelligence agency has recently delivered what is called a report on the investigation into the origins of the novel coronavirus.

The report has not definitively concluded whether the virus was leaked from a laboratory or it jumped to humans via animals.
