A "presidential statement" hurting the sacred dignity of the DPRK was adopted at the 13th ASEM foreign ministers' meeting held in Myanmar on Nov. 20-21.
It is just a blatant challenge to the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK that a "presidential statement", peppered with the contents produced from serious ignorance about and biased viewpoint on the social system of the DPRK and the situation on the Korean peninsula, was adopted at the ASEM foreign ministers' meeting, a gathering of diplomatic bosses of Asia and Europe.
Not content with terming the legitimate and entirely just steps taken by the DPRK to preserve its sovereignty and rights to existence and development "threats" to the international community, the "statement" took issue with it over its non-existent "human rights abuses."
The DPRK cannot but refute the relevant contents of the "statement" clause by clause.
The U.S. brought its three nuclear aircraft carriers to the vicinity of the Korean peninsula, the world's worst hot spot, and let two B-1Bs fly above it. It is about to make another serious military provocation targeting the DPRK from Dec. 4 by bringing 12 000 troops of its naval and air forces and six F-22 stealth fighter jets to south Korea.
Peace has never settled on the peninsula due to such war drumbeats.
These facts clearly prove that the nuclear war "threat" is coming from Trump, the worst-ever gangster politician and boss of the hooligans, and his servants, who are getting desperate to "demonize" the state and people of the DPRK, crying out for "totally destroying" it in the sacred UN arena.
However, the "statement" termed the steps taken by the DPRK for self-defense "grave threats" while keeping mum about the Trump administration keen on staging mad-cap war drills near the Korean peninsula with huge nuclear strategic assets involved.
This proves that the countries which participated in the meeting deliberately defied and distorted the reality although they clearly know who is chiefly to blame for spawning the nuclear issue on the peninsula and escalating tensions there.
Those countries claimed that the meeting "reaffirmed the will to achieve durable peace and denuclearization on the Korean peninsula by peaceful diplomatic and political methods."
However, it is the situation on the peninsula that a nuclear war may break out any moment due to the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK and threat to use force against it. It is clear to even a mere child that dialogue is impossible under such situation.
The countries talked about effective and comprehensive implementation of the outrageous "sanctions resolutions" against the DPRK at the meeting although the "resolutions" are seriously problematic both in law and morality. They will never be able to escape their legal responsibility for joining the U.S. in its inhuman and outrageous sanctions racket to stifle the DPRK.
They should not say this or that about the DPRK centered on the popular masses but take issue with the U.S., the kingpin of hideous state-sponsored terrorism and human rights tundra, which strikes sovereign countries with fighter jets and tanks in broad daylight and regards the lives of the colored races as something not better than the ones of flies, talking about "supremacy of whites."
Whether others recognize it or not, the DPRK, as an actual world-class nuclear weapons state, will more dynamically advance along the road chosen by it, holding fast to its nuclear deterrent of justice, in order to put a definite end to the nuclear threats from the U.S. and to preserve peace and security of the Korean peninsula and the world.
