DPRK SPA Foreign Affairs Committee's Letter of Protest to U.S. House of Representatives

Pyongyang, May 12 (KCNA) -- The Foreign Affairs Committee of the Supreme People's Assembly of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Friday sent the following letter of protest to the U.S. House of Representatives:
The SPA Foreign Affairs Committee of the DPRK avails itself of this opportunity to strongly condemn and resolutely reject the "North Korea Interdiction & Modernization of Sanctions Act" (H.R. 1644) that the U.S. House of Representatives passed on May 4, 2017, and extends this letter of protest.

The passage of the above legislation amounts to the most heinous act against humanity that not only infringes upon the sacred sovereignty of the DPRK as well as its people's rights to existence but also arbitrarily violates universal principles of sovereign equality and non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries which run through the United Nations Charter and international laws.

That the U.S. House of Representatives passed the above legislation speaks volumes about the ignorance of U.S. politicians who know nothing about the root cause of the long-standing hostile relations between the DPRK and the U.S. and the essence of the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula; it is yet another product of hostile policy towards the DPRK.

The hostile policy and acts of the United States of America targeting the DPRK - including but not limited to the abovementioned legislation - run counter to the efforts aimed at ensuring peace and security on the Korean peninsula; it will only further handicap the USA in its attempt to resolve the nuclear issue.

If what the U.S. House of Representatives really wants is peace and security on the Korean peninsula and resolution of the nuclear issue, it would do well to delve into more relevant issues such as the establishment of lasting peace regime on the Korean peninsula, enactment of laws aimed at putting an end to the hostile relations between the DPRK and the USA, etc.

There's no denying that the DPRK is fully capable of safeguarding its sovereignty along with its rights to existence and development.

The consequences will be dire if the U.S. House of Representatives, obsessed with inherent sense of disapproval towards the DPRK, misjudges the DPRK's determination and capabilities and continues to meddle in other's internal affairs and bring pressure to bear on another country by invoking its domestic laws. The U.S. House of Representatives should think twice.

As the U.S. House of Representatives enacts more and more of these reckless hostile laws, the DPRK's efforts to strengthen nuclear deterrents will gather greater pace, beyond anyone's imagination.

The DPRK will keep a watchful eye on the next moves of the USA and continue to take legitimate actions for self-defense to counter the hostile policy of the USA towards the DPRK.

The SPA Foreign Affairs Committee of the DPRK takes this opportunity to reiterate its position that the U.S. House of Representatives must have correct understanding of the essence of the current situation and make rational moves as regards the issue of the Korean peninsula.
