FM Spokesman Hits Behavior of U.S. and Its Vassal Forces

The U.S. is trying hard to create international atmosphere for sanctions against the DPRK over the test-fire of its ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12.

What is ridiculous is that the U.S. and its vassal forces advertise that more than 20 countries and international bodies denounced the launch of rocket Hwasong-12, claiming that their anti-DPRK moves were enjoying international support.

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement on Friday branded such behavior as a cynical ploy of making profound confusing of right and wrong.

DPRK Permanent Mission to UN Issues Press Statement

The Permanent mission of the DPRK to the United Nations on Thursday issued a press statement to clarify the stand of the DPRK government over the fact that the anti-DPRK moves of the U.S. and the abuse of power by the UNSC Committee, established pursuant to resolution 1718(2006) on the DPRK, have gone to the extremes.

Nowadays the U.S. resorts to the foolish scheme to encourage the increased environment for implementation of the “sanction resolutions” against the DPRK, staging such closed briefings by the Committee for each regional group countries at the UN Headquarters one after another, which are unprecedented ever in the UN history, the press statement pointed out, saying: The U.S. raises its voice before the member states, claiming that many countries are not fully engaged in implementation of the “sanction resolutions” against the DPRK and even intimidating others into the implementation, openly threatening that member nations would be faced with “strong measures of sanction” if they do not implement or show less interest in fulfilling their obligation to implement the “sanction resolutions”.

This only shows illegality and injustice of the “sanction resolutions” cooked up and imposed by the U.S. against the DPRK.
