Be smart about South Korea: Join Korea Pro
The Permanent Mission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the United Nations released the following press statement on August 3 regarding the anti-DPRK confrontational clamor by the United States and some servile parties concerned with unwarranted accusations against the DPRK at the 10 th Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT):

A long time ago, the DPRK withdrew from the NPT through the legitimate procedure under the relevant article stipulated in the NPT. Accordingly, nobody has the right or justification to accuse the DPRK, a nuclear possessing state outside the NPT, of its exercise of the right to self-defense.

Today, the mastermind that undermines the foundation of the non-proliferation regime is none other than the U.S. which is hell-bent on nuclear threats and blackmail against sovereign states and even does not hesitate about nuclear proliferation with a view to realizing its strategy of hegemony in flagrant infringement upon and violation of the treaty anchored on the main pillars of nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation and peaceful use of atomic power.

The U.S. itself would not deny the fact that it has transferred the technology of a nuclear-powered submarine to Australia and connived at and patronized Israel’s possession of nuclear weapons.

It is a height of a guilty party filing the suit first that the U.S. says this and that about somebody’s “nuclear threats”, given the fact that it is the kingpin of nuclear proliferation which has historically and systematically violated its obligations under the treaty one article after another and disrupted international peace and regional security.

In order to genuinely ensure international peace and security, it is imperative to put in the dock of an international court and bring to justice the U.S. which is perpetrating high-handedness and arbitrary practice by wielding a nuclear club.

We will never tolerate any attempt by the U.S. and its servile forces to groundlessly accuse our State and encroach upon our sovereign rights and national interests.
