Press Statement by Head of U.S. Affairs Department of DPRK Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Date: 24/06/2023 | Source: Ministry of Foreign Affairs (EN) | Read original version at source

Kwon Jong Gun, Director-General of the Department of U.S. Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), released the following press statement on June 24:

During his recent visit to China, Secretary of the U.S. Department of State Blinken let out a load of threatening remarks that the U.S., together with Japan and south Korea, would take military measures to China’s dislike if China does not take action, saying that China is in the unique position to pressurize Pyongyang.

By talking such rubbish, Blinken betrayed the fact that he, styling himself experienced and intelligent in the U.S. diplomatic camp, is no more than a low-class diplomat advocating power-based “diplomacy” who is practically incapable of discerning the nature of the relations between countries.

His words are nothing new but stereotyped ones not helpful for resolving the issue. It is a manifestation of his dangerous hegemony-oriented mental state that plunges everything into a vicious cycle again by bringing the situation back to the square one which fails to see the issue of the Korean peninsula be resolved for the past 30 years.

The root cause of the ever-escalating tension on the Korean peninsula is not to be discovered in the DPRK nor in its neighboring country but in the U.S. which has seriously infringed upon the sovereignty and security of the DPRK by persistently pursuing the most hideous hostile policy towards it.

Unless the root cause of the decades-old degeneration process that resulted in the current acute confrontation is removed from the Korean peninsula, it is utterly impossible to defuse the military tension and standoff in the region.

Blinken’s recent nonsense has served as an occasion for confirming once again that the U.S., pursuing its immutable hostility towards the DPRK, is the most hostile entity which the latter should confront with the clearest action mode until the issue comes to a settlement once and for all.

The U.S. should be aware of the fact that it is bound to face security concerns and ultimately be exposed to more substantial threats for its expanded deployment of strategic assets and more frequent military exercises of explicitly aggressive nature under the pretence of protecting its allies.

Taking this opportunity, we seriously warn that the scale and scope of the DPRK’s practical countermeasures will be extended more overwhelmingly and offensively upon noticing the escalation of the U.S. military action and provocation on the Korean peninsula and in the region.

Unless the U.S. stops its acts of threatening nature, violating our sovereignty in disregard of our rights and interests; and unless it takes a clear action measure to lift its heinous hostile policy towards the DPRK, there will be neither restraint nor adjustment in the latter’s exercise of the right to self-defence.

The U.S. had better keep this in mind.
