Pyongyang, July 11 (KCNA) -- The DPRK government sent the U.S. government a message on July 10 through the DPRK permanent mission to the UN in connection with the fact that the U.S. recently impaired the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK by releasing what they call "report on human rights" and "list of targets of special sanctions" related to the DPRK.
The DPRK government in its message clarified its stand to take
practical actions as already declared in the statement of the Foreign
The message vehemently denounced the recent U.S. sanctions measure
which impaired the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK as the
most hideous criminal act and a declaration of war against the DPRK.
Now that the U.S. refused to comply with the DPRK's demand for the
immediate withdrawal of the sanctions measure, the DPRK government
notified the U.S. that it would take practical actions against the U.S.
stage by stage as already clarified and would totally cut off New York
DPRK-U.S. contact channel, the only official contact channel, at the
first phase, the message said.
The DPRK government informed the U.S. government of its principled
stand that from now on it would deal with all the issues arising in the
DPRK-U.S. relations under wartime law of the DPRK and the issue of
detained Americans is no exception and the U.S. is wholly to blame for
the ensuing unpleasant things happening in the bilateral ties. -0-
