Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism

Date: 15/06/2020 | Source: Ministry of Foreign Affairs (EN) | Read original version at source

On June 1, the Coordinating Bureau of the Non-Aligned Movement issued a communique condemning the terrorist attack against the Embassy of Cuba in the United States.

The communique condemned the terrorist attack perpetrated against the Embassy of Cuba in the United States on April 30 and expressed the concern that the government of the United States had failed to pronounce itself with a public statement in condemnation of the terrorist attack.

The communique also stated its stand with respect to the fact that the U.S. had included Cuba in the lists of countries that do not cooperate in the efforts for counter-terrorism that it rejects the unilateral preparation of lists, which is detrimental to individual countries, politicizing the fight against terrorism.

It continued to state that any form of act of attack is unjustifiable and strongly urged the United States to protect the members of the Cuban Embassy and the Cuban Permanent Mission to the United Nations, as provided for in the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations which defines that States assume a special obligation to protect the diplomatic missions accredited to their territory.

It is the consistent stand of the government of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to oppose terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and any support to it.

The very nature of an American standard in respect of terrorism and counter-terrorism is clearly illustrated by the paradoxical evidence that the United States, which has been keeping “an accomplice’s silence” over 40 days since the outbreak of terrorist attack on Cuban Embassy, defines the country – that has become the target of extremely dangerous terror on the American land in Washington – as a country that does not cooperate in the efforts for counter-terrorism.
