DPRK Permanent Representative to UN Sends Letter to UN Secretary General

Pyongyang, May 18 (KCNA) -- Kim Song, permanent representative of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, sent a letter to Antonio Manuel de Oliveira Guterres, secretary general of the United Nations, on Friday.

The letter reads:

Mr. Secretary General,

I address this letter to you with regard to the incident of dispossession of the cargo ship "Wise Honest" of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Recently, the United States committed an unlawful and outrageous act of taking the DPRK's cargo ship to Samoa (U.S.), linking the ship to the violation of the American domestic law, and this act of dispossession has clearly indicated that the United States is indeed a gangster country that does not care at all about international laws.

Unilateral sanctions, such as the anti-DPRK "Sanctions Act" based on the U.S. domestic law which the U.S. has employed as a ground of dispossession of the ship, are defined as an illegal act going against the UN Charter and the international laws, in accordance with the resolution adopted at the 62nd Session of the UN General Assembly, and it is also a universally recognized principle of international law that in no case can a sovereign state be an object of jurisdiction of other countries.

Moreover, the United States committed a sovereignty-infringing act of flagrantly violating the UN Charter by dispossessing the cargo ship where the DPRK's sovereignty is fully exercised.

Since the international concern is growing more than ever over the likely impact to be brought to the situation of the Korean peninsula by the heinous act of the United States, I believe that the Secretary General of the United Nations is requested to take urgent measures as a way of contributing to the stability of the Korean peninsula and proving the impartiality of the UN.

We will follow actions to be taken by the United Nations. -0-
