U.S. Will be Made to Pay for Its "Unilateral Sanctions" on DPRK

Pyongyang, September 29 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Sanctions Damage Investigation Committee of the DPRK issued the following press statement Friday:

Lately, Trump who met with worldwide condemnation and opposition for the reckless and insane remarks about "total destruction" of the DPRK that he gabbled on in the UN arena, is tightening the already-vicious sanctions against the DPRK.

On September 21, Trump signed the executive order of the president to impose indiscriminate sanctions on every individual and entity that engage in trade and financial transactions with the DPRK. As a follow-up, the U.S. Treasury Department added eight banks and relevant personnel of the DPRK to the sanctions list.

This is a last-ditch effort of the U.S. panic-stricken by the intense hatred and burning rage of our army and people towards the U.S. chief executive who vociferated about "totally destroying" the DPRK. The U.S. is trying to realize its unethical ambition through the despicable means of sanctions and blockade to completely severe the DPRK's external economic relations.

The U.S., not content with abusing the mandate of the UNSC to frame up illegal and unlawful "sanctions resolutions" aimed at stifling the DPRK, is even putting under sanctions other countries which have economic and trade relations with the DPRK, claiming to close the loopholes in the existing sanctions regime.

The frenzied moves of the U.S. to impose unilateral sanctions and stifle the DPRK are not only a gross violation of universal principles of international law such as sovereign equality, right to self-determination and respect for the right to development, but also a brutal criminal act that indiscriminately infringes upon the right to existence of the peaceful civilians.

Today, the U.S. is wielding the sanctions club in accordance with its federal law, abusing its privileged position in the current unfair international economic order and monetary system, and is indulging itself in outrageous arbitrary and high-handed practices to impose its heinous demands upon other countries as if they were states of the U.S.

The sanctions moves of the U.S. aimed at completely obliterating the state and people of the DPRK are heinous criminal acts unprecedented in all times and places in their viciousness and brutality. The colossal amount of damage caused by these sanctions to the development of our state and the people's livelihood is beyond anyone's calculation.

The Sanctions Damage Investigation Committee with the mission to thoroughly investigate and evaluate the material and moral damages to the DPRK caused by the U.S. and its vassal forces, strongly condemns the ever-increasing "unilateral sanctions" maneuvers of the U.S. The Committee shall certainly make the U.S. pay for damage to the last penny.

It is a foolish dream to hope that the sanctions could work on the DPRK while the sanctions have failed to stop it from becoming a full-fledged nuclear weapons state and making rapid progress in the building of an economic power for more than half a century.

The U.S. should be fully aware that the more frantic it gets in the unprecedented anti-DPRK frenzy, the earlier it will meet its own miserable extinction. -0-
