Spokesperson for DPRK Foreign Ministry Denounces U.S. Moves against DPRK

Pyongyang, October 10 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) released the following statement on Thursday:

Despite our warning, six EU countries including Britain, France, Germany at the instigation of the U.S. Tuesday held a closed-door meeting of the UNSC to release a statement "critical" of our self-defensive measure.

The UNSC which champions fairness and equity picks fault with the just measure belonging to our right to self-defense, while keeping mum about the test-fire of Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missile recently conducted by the U.S. This is a serious provocation against the DPRK.

Worse still, the U.S. begged for the DPRK-U.S. working-level negotiations, broke off the negotiations with empty hand and claimed that the result of negotiations was positive. And it encouraged its satellites to release a statement critical of the DPRK. We take into full account its attempt.

As recognized by the international community, the United States conducted the recent intercontinental ballistic missile test-fire in a bid to pressure the DPRK. The DPRK can give tit for tat, but exercises restraint under the judgment that it does not need to take a counteraction and it is premature.

But there is a limit to the patience of the DPRK and there is no guarantee that all our patience would continue indefinitely.

Despite the strong warning of the DPRK, the UNSC is so unreasonable to put on the table an issue belonging to the DPRK's right to self-defence for someone's interests without a correct yardstick. The reality urges the DPRK to reconsider crucial preemptive measures taken by it for the building confidence in the U.S. -0-
