DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hits out at UNSC "Sanctions Resolution"

 Pyongyang, December 1 (KCNA) -- The UN Security Council adopted a "sanctions resolution" faulting the nuclear warhead explosion test conducted by the DPRK in September last.
    A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement on Thursday said that the DPRK strongly censures and categorically rejects it as another excess of authority and violation of the DPRK's sovereignty by the UNSC acting under instructions of the U.S.
    The DPRK's successful test was one of practical steps taken by it to tackle the nuclear threat and sanctions by the U.S. and other hostile forces desperately taking issue with the exercise of the DPRK's right to self-defence and it is also a demonstration of the toughest stand of the service personnel and people of the DPRK that they are ready to launch a counterattack in case the enemy make a provocation, the statement said.
    Many countries including all the permanent member states of the UNSC have so far conducted thousands of nuclear tests and rocket launches but the UNSC has never prevented them from doing so, it noted, and went on:
    Obama and his lackeys are sadly mistaken if they calculate that they can force the DPRK to abandon its line of nuclear weaponization and undermine its status as a nuclear power through base sanctions to pressurize it.
    The DPRK will never deal with them but more dynamically advance along the road of justice chosen by it.
    The "sanctions resolution" that denied outright the sovereignty of the DPRK and its rights to existence and development will trigger off its tougher countermeasures for self-defence.
    Sanctions will inevitably escalate tensions and the U.S., chief culprit of the "sanctions resolution", will be held wholly accountable in case the situation on the Korean peninsula and in the region is pushed to an uncontrollable phase. -0-
