DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Slams Japan’s Spy Satellite Launch

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA Friday over Japan’s launch of a satellite for spying on the DPRK: On Thursday morning Japan launched a rocket carrying a satellite for spying on the DPRK at the Tanekashima Space Center in Kagoshima Prefecture under the pretext of global positioning.

Japan has already put a lot of spy satellites on space orbits since 2003 for the purpose of round-the-clock spying on the DPRK.

Not content with terming the self-defensive steps taken by the DPRK to preserve regional peace and security “threats” and “provocations”, Japan imprudently described its entirely just and legitimate satellite launches for peaceful purposes as “ballistic missile launches” while escalating sanctions and pressure on the DPRK. This is aimed to secure a justification for realizing its wild ambition for the revival of militarism.

DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Refutes G-7 Summit Joint Statement

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Tuesday over the fact that the U.S. and the hostile forces made public a joint statement faulting the DPRK at the G-7 summit: At the summit held in Sicily of Italy on May 26-27, the U.S. and its followers made public a joint statement slandering the DPRK.

It is those seven nations which carried out most of the nuclear and missile tests that have been and who render regional situation extremely tense through competitive sales of war means like attack missiles to south Korea.

Yet, they are urging the DPRK to scrap its nuclear deterrence meant for self-defence of the country.

Japanese Authorities Warned of Inciting Pressure and Sanctions on DPRK: Foreign Ministry Spokesman

A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry released the following statement on Monday: The DPRK’s measures for bolstering nuclear force are a legitimate exercise of the right to self-defence by a sovereign state to put an end to the escalating moves of the U.S. for a nuclear war and firmly guarantee peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region.

But, Japan is branding the measures for self-defence as “threat” and “provocation”.

The chief executive of Japan reeled off a litany of balderdashes about the strict implementation of “sanctions resolutions” and the necessity of adopting a new resolution during the G-7 Summit recently held in Italy, claiming that now is the time to put pressure on the DPRK, not have dialogue with it.
