Pyongyang, March 7 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea made public the following statement on Saturday:

At the end of the UN Security Council emergency meeting held on last March 5, the UK, France, Germany, Belgium and Estonia announced a so-called "joint statement" denouncing the drill of our army.

As widely known to the world, the UK, France and Germany have followed in the footsteps of the U.S. to take the lead in denouncing us since May 2019, while repeating an absurd argument of "condemnation" and "violation of resolutions" of the UN whenever we conducted military drills.

The routine drills of our army are just the same as those conducted by any country of the world. However, only our military drills are becoming the subject of weird countries to be denounced every time. In the end, it is nothing more than a logic that we should give up our right to self-defence.

The UK, France and Germany are taking issue with our military acts in each and every case, only because they cannot speak it out.

If even a routine drill of multiple launch rocket system artillerymen should be a target of condemnation and alleged "violation of resolutions", then with what do we hold in check the military forces of the U.S. and south Korea in front of us and how do we defend our state.

They should put forth an argument to be understood by everyone and convinced especially by us to demand observance. If they blindly call our self-defence acts into question as now, it is, in the long run, tantamount to asking us to abandon the defence of our own state.

The illogical thinking and sophism of these countries are just gradually bearing a close resemblance to the U.S. which is hostile to us.

The reckless behavior of these countries instigated by the U.S. will become a fuse that will trigger our yet another momentous reaction. -0-
