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.

Tracing the origins of the virus is the issue to be addressed jointly by the scientists across the world, not to be dealt with by intelligence agency, because this is a scientific matter after all.

Our State Takes Full Responsibility for Our People’s Life and Safety

The Report of the United Nations Secretary-General on the situation of human rights in our country, which had been submitted to the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly, was made public on August 20.

This report, distributed annually by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, is a plot document full of sheer falsity and fabrications. And obviously, it has all along been categorically negated and rejected by our country.

The point in question is that such conspiracies and slanders have now crossed the line into openly condemning as “human rights abuses” the anti-epidemic emergency measures taken by our state to protect the life and safety of its people from the global pandemic.

46 Years Under Banner of Anti-Imperialism, Independence, Friendship and Solidarity

Through the unremitting struggle against all forms of subordination, inequality, interference and aggression, Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) has now developed into a powerful force aspiring after genuine international justice, thus rising to global prominence and demonstrating its power.

Over 46 years since its admission into NAM at the NAM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting held on August 25, 1975 in Lima, Peru, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has traversed the road of glorious struggle, overcoming all sorts of trials of history under the uplifted banner of anti-imperialism and independence.

Our country has now developed into a powerful fortress for the common front of anti-imperialism, and NAM has consistently advanced along the road of independence and prosperity. These are entirely the brilliant fruition of immortal leadership of the external revolutionary activities undertaken by President Kim Il Sung, outstanding thinker and theoretician and great sage of the independent era.

Press Statement by Ri Son Gwon, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

Today is a meaningful day that marks the 95th birth anniversary of Comrade Fidel Castro Ruz.

On this occasion, we express our high respect to Comrade Fidel Castro Ruz, a friend dear to the Korean people, and we also extend our comradely and militant greetings to the fraternal Cuban people who are making vigorous efforts for socialist construction.

Comrade Fidel Castro Ruz established the first-ever socialist country in the Western hemisphere on this planet by organizing and carrying out an armed struggle in his early years against the dictatorial regime of Batista, the U.S. stooge, and advanced the Cuban revolution to victory by countering decades of continued challenges and obstructions by the hostile forces.

Press Statement by Kim Yo Jong, Vice Department Director of WPK Central Committee

Despite the unanimous denunciation and rejection at home and abroad, the U.S. and the south Korean army defiantly launched joint military exercises further accelerating the unstable situation.

The joint military exercises are divided into an “exercise of the staff for crisis control” from August 10 to 13 and a “combined command exercise” from August 16 to 26. They are the most vivid expression of the U.S. hostile policy towards the DPRK, designed to stifle our state by force, and an unwelcome act of self-destruction for which a dear price should be paid as they threaten the safety of our people and further imperil the situation on the Korean peninsula.

The dangerous war exercises pushed ahead by the U.S. and the south Korean side in disregard of our repeated warnings will surely make them face more serious security threat.
