Pyongyang, October 2 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korea-Europe Association made public the following press statement on Monday:
On September 29, at the welcoming ceremony for the NATO secretary general held in a British nuclear submarine base in Scotland, the British secretary of State for Defense uttered a reckless remark that the British government is working together with the U.S. administration to end the nuclear program of the DPRK while claiming that their nuclear deterrence protects the U.K. from north Korea and Russia.

His reckless remark is an unsound claim to find an impertinent fake excuse to justify their pursuit of nuclear weapons modernization.

Although the U.K. dispatched its soldiers to the Korean War siding with the U.S. in the last century, we have clarified on several occasions that we do not consider the U.K. as our enemy since our two countries established official state relations in the new century.

However, recently some British politicians are saying that the possibility of British involvement cannot be ruled out in case an armed conflict takes place on the Korean peninsula.

The DPRK is watching their moves carefully with due vigilance.

Moreover, the secretary of State for Defense pigheadedly branded the DPRK's nuclear deterrence as a threat to the U.K. and even dared to impugn the dignity of our supreme leadership. This is an act that can never be tolerated.

To remind them once more, the DPRK's measures to strengthen the nuclear force are, for all intents and purposes, an exercise of its right to self-defense to safeguard peace and security in the Korean peninsula and the region from the vicious anti-DPRK hostile policy and nuclear threat of the U.S. which aim at obliterating the DPRK's sovereignty and rights to existence and development and annihilating the DPRK itself.

Whoever it is, getting recklessly involved in the confrontation between the DPRK that possesses the powerful nuclear deterrence in practice and the U.S. is a foolish act tantamount to jumping into the fire with fuel.

The U.K. would better get rid of its forlorn hope of eliminating, in collaboration with the U.S., the nuclear deterrence of the DPRK that now possesses even H-bomb and ICBM and address the DPRK-related issues from a strategic perspective.

The secretary of State for Defense should contemplate his words and behavior, rather than persistently ignoring the cause of the evil and dancing to the tune of the U.S.
