Press Statement Issued by Vice-Minister for European Affairs of DPRK Foreign Ministry

Kim Son Gyong, vice-minister for European Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea issued the following statement on Wednesday:

On June 16, the spokesperson for Foreign Affairs & Security Policy led by the High Representative of the European Union picked a quarrel with the DPRK’s measure of completely destroying the north-south joint liaison office and overrode her commission in making absurd remarks that the DPRK should avoid any action that could raise tension and that it is imperative for the DPRK to open the lines of communication to avoid misunderstanding and miscalculation. She also said that the EU encourages dialogue for denuclearization on the Korean peninsula and the restart of a sustained diplomatic process aimed at building trust and establishing lasting peace and security on the Korean peninsula, free of nuclear weapons at the earliest possible time.

We are now pretty immune to such gibberish of the EU, but I didn’t know that the EU’s power of judgment was at such low level.

It may be so that I only feel sorry, rather than angry, for its behavior of keeping silent when all sorts of incidences take place on a worldwide scale, but never miss its chance to raise its voice whenever it is provided with anything to pick on us.

It is only deplorable that the EU, being ignorant of the fundamental reasons behind the current breakdown of the inter-Korean relations, is reeling off only unreasonable and trite remarks such as “building trust” and “lasting peace” on the Korean peninsula.

How can it dare to let out such words without even knowing about the intensity of rage incurred by hurting the mental core of our people?

If the EU wants to make a word on this occasion, it would need to give a good talking to the south Korean authorities that it should severely punish the human scum who trifled with the entire people, daring hurt the dignity of Supreme Leadership, held most sacred by our people.

In the past, the EU has assumed saintly airs and feigned ignorance about the severe infringement upon the sovereignty and the rights to existence and development of our state. But it has made its business to launch a smear campaign against the DPRK while displaying a spirit of rivalry in finding faults with any of the self-defensive measures taken by the DPRK to bolster up its national defense capabilities.

I do not hide the fact we had even expected that a new EU leadership, which was formed at the end of the last year, would conform to the impartiality and objectivity, to some extent, in international affairs unlike its predecessors who had been too ready to take sides with the U.S. in its policy of putting pressure against the DPRK.

But this expectation is gradually fading away with the passage of time.

To correctly judge and deal with the issues of international relations on the basis of the universal principle of impartiality and objectivity, I think, this stands as a precondition for the EU to realize its idea to become an independent pole in the international arena.

The EU is well advised to lend an ear to the voices of European DPRK experts who demand an immediate reformulation of its policy towards the DPRK, rather than getting overheated in picking on us simply without any discretion.

To do so, I think, is just the way to save the face of the EU-the regional organization of integration which consists of 27 countries.
