Futile Act Will Incur Only Disgrace and Shame: Answer by Spokesperson for DPRK Foreign Ministry

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 March 23 with respect to the designation on March 22 by the European Union of several countries including the DPRK as targets of “human rights sanctions” under the pretext of “countering global human rights violations.”

As has been made public, EU performed a farce of announcing the targets of sanctions by pointing its finger at what it calls “human rights violations” in several countries of the world.

The DPRK strongly denounces and categorically rejects this farce of “human rights sanctions” by EU, as it constitutes a part of the stereo-typed policy hostile to the DPRK and a despicable political provocation aimed at infringing upon its sovereignty and interfering in its internal affairs.

Invincible Friendship and Unity

The establishment of diplomatic relations between the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the Republic of Cuba on August 29, 1960 was a significant occasion in encouraging the struggle of the peoples of the two countries that embarked on the accomplishment of the socialist cause and in developing and expanding their friendly and cooperative ties.

The invincible friendship and unity personally formed by the preceding leaders of the two countries serve now as a good example of the comradely relations among the peoples of the revolutionary countries.

Forty-Five Years for Global Independence

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) has been striving to maintain its noble idea of independence against imperialism and peace against war and to realize genuine international justice. Forty-five-year-long DPRK’s brilliant traces associated with NAM are also recorded in the history of NAM.

An admission of the DPRK into NAM was approved by consensus at the Conference of Foreign Ministers of the Non-Aligned Countries held on August 25, 1975 in Lima, Peru, with the participation of the delegates from 84 NAM member states and international organizations, and the representatives from more than 20 countries and organizations of national liberation movement.

Many delegates to the Conference said unanimously at that time that the admission of the DPRK to NAM could be compared to a forming of the nucleus of the Movement, and expressed their strong feeling that only the great President Kim Il Sung, who had gained the country’s independence by relying on the national strength and firmly adhered to the independent spirit even under the complex international situation, could lead this Movement in conformity with the expectation of the developing countries.
