Idea Study Group of England(JISGE),the UK Korean Friendship
Association(UK KFA) and the UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017
Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu issued a
statement in support of the statement of director of the Department of Treaty and Law of the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued on the 22nd of December 2016;
Our organisations have always believed that the UNSC sanctions on People's Korea are deeply unjust and unfair and basically a declaration of war against People's Korea. UNSC resolution 2321 along with previous UNSC resolutions on sanctions against the DPRK is basically illegal. The DPRK nuclear and missile tests are purely self-defensive . The DPRK fully acted within its own rights and international law. Article 61 of the UN Charter on the right of self-defense and the article 12 of
the Declaration on the right and responsibilities of the state said that every
state has the right of individual or collective self-defense,There was no legitmate reason to bring the case of the
DPRK's nuclear and missile tests to the UNSC and it should never have been discussed by the UNSC. This shows that the UNSC acted as a puppet of US imperialism and some big powers.
The sanctions are also deeply hypocritical as the US and other permanent members of the UNSC have carried out missile tests and nuclear tests but no one has imposed sanctions on them nor have these tests been discussed at the UN Security Council.
Moreover the UNSC resolution even talks about a physical blockade of the DPRK, which is not only against international law but is against paragraph 15 of article 2 of the Korean Armistice Agreement .
Thus UNSC resolution 2321 has no legal basis whatsoever and is a criminal act aimed at strangling the independence of the DPRK and bringing down its socialist system.
As director of the Department of Treaty and Law of the DPRK Foreign Ministry points out "
The latest UNSC "resolution on sanctions" has created the danger of
imminent war on the Korean peninsula as there are no judicial and
institutional mechanisms to avert a war and armed conflicts and the
"resolution" is as good as a declaration of war"
We strongly support the statement of director of the Department of Treaty and Law of the DPRK Foreign Ministry and call for the UNSC to see sense . The UNSC must revoke the sanctions.
Furthermore the US imperialists and their marionettes in the UNSC are naive to think that they can bring the DPRK down by means of sanctions . Guided by Juche and applying self-reliance and self-development the Korean people will totally crush the sanctions and blockades of the imperialists and build a prosperous country.
