Spokesperson for Ministry of Foreign Affairs of DPRK Slams U.S. National Security Adviser

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK), gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on May 27 as regards the fact that U.S. National Security Adviser has taken the issue over our regular military drill:

Bolton, U.S. National Security Adviser has taken the issue over the regular military drill of our army, claiming that it is a violation of the “resolutions” of the United Nations Security Council. His claim is indeed much more than ignorant.

As for the UNSC “resolutions” which Bolton recklessly referred to, we have neither recognized nor bound by them, because those “resolutions” are illegal and outrageous ones that completely deny the rights to existence and development of a sovereign state, as we have already stated several times.

U.S. Is Responsible for Rupture of Hanoi Summit Talks: DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesperson

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK) gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on May 24, as regards the attempt revealing within the United States to impute to the DPRK the cause for the rupture of the Hanoi DPRK-U.S. summit talks:

As we have stated before, the underlying cause of setback of the DPRK-U.S. summit talks in Hanoi is the arbitrary and dishonest position taken by the United States, insisting on a method which is totally impossible to get through.

For the sake of building confidence, a main key to an alleviation of the DPRK-U.S. hostile relations, we took crucial and meaningful measures of a strategically decisive nature including the discontinuation of nuclear test and test-fire of intercontinental ballistic missile, and we also took a broadminded step towards the realization of the repatriation of the American POW/MIA remains.

Striving for Realization of Genuine International Justice Holds Principal Position in Foreign Policy of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK)

Justice is a common ideal of humankind, and it is a shared aspiration and desire of all countries and nations across the world to achieve prosperity for all in a free and peaceful world where genuine international justice is in place.

In the international arena at present, however, the globally recognized fundamental principles governing the international relations are being blatantly violated, the imperialists’ moves for aggression and war are being justified and legitimized, and the imperialists’ attempts at violating the sovereignty of other countries at the former’s own free will are growing more pronounced than ever before.

The reality urgently demands that the world progressive peoples undertake active struggle for the realization of international justice, irrespective of their differences in political and religious beliefs and level of economic and cultural development.

DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hits out at Outrageous Act of U.S.

A spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea made the following statement on Tuesday:

The United States committed an unlawful and outrageous act of dispossessing our cargo ship by forcibly taking it to Samoa(U.S.), linking the ship to the “sanctions resolutions” of the United Nations Security Council(UNSC) and its domestic “sanctions acts”, all being imposed against the DPRK.

The UNSC “sanctions resolutions” on the DPRK, which the U.S. has employed as one of the grounds for its dispossession of our cargo ship, have flagrantly infringed upon the sovereignty of our state, and therefore, we have categorically rejected and condemned the whole of them all along.
