UK KOREAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION
19th of September 2016
The UK Korean Friendship Association issued the following statement concerning the negative stance of the British government on the recent successful test of a nuclear warhead by the
Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson stated on the 9th of September that "The United Kingdom strongly condemns North Korea for conducting a
further nuclear test, which is a flagrant violation of UN Security
Council Resolutions and a threat to regional peace and stability." Johnson further mouthed about a "robust response " which means more sanctions and pressure .
We say that first of all , it is no business of the UK or Boris Johnson whether the DPRK conducts nuclear tests or not , it is the independent and sovereign of People's Korea to take measures to defend itself including the bolstering of the nuclear deterrent .
Secondly, it is the US nuclear threat to the DPRK that has compelled it to develop its nuclear deterrent. It is really outrageous for Boris Johnson to criticise the DPRK for merely defending itself
against the massive US nuclear threat to it . Johnson also ignores the fact that it is the US that has the largest number of nuclear weapons in the world and has used nuclear weapons twice against a
non-nuclear state .
It is also very hypocritical for the UK government to condemn the DPRK for carrying out its
5th nuclear test as the UK has carried out 45 nuclear tests , 9 times the amount of nuclear tests carried
out by the DPRK ! The UK also possses a nuclear stockpile and it in the process of renewing the
Trident submarine. People who live in glasshouses should not throw stones. !
Britain should stop trying to interfere in the internal affairs of the DPRK and should stop siding with the US imperialists and south Korean puppets against People's Korea !
