The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK, the Juche Idea Study Group of England ,the UK Korean Friendship Association and UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu today issued a joint statement denouncing the latest round of
US imperialist sanctions against the DPRK:
As clarified by the answer of the Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on Wednesday 29th of March the US imperialists have come forward yet more 'additional', even though the DPRK is already the most heavily sanctioned country on the face of the earth . The US imperialists pressurised SWIFT to ban transactions with DPRK banks and the International Financial Supervisory Body was told to re-list the DPRK as a target of 'counter-measures'.Moreover the US imperialists brought forward anti-DPRK legalisation to the US Congress and Senate which included blacklisting banks of third countries dealing with the DPRK.
In actuality the DPRK has not used the SWIFT system for a long time and the DPRK's dealings with banks of other countries is fairly minimal or limited.
It is also a diabolically unfair measure as the DPRK has taken strict measures against money laundering and indeed as a socialist country there can be no such thing as money laundering .
These sanctions by the US and others are a mean attempt to try and halt the rapid development of the DPRK which they are jealous of and also to bring down the socialist system. However such measures will not work because the DPRK will uphold self-development and self-reliance and smash the sanctions. Indeed de-linking the DPRK from the imperialist financial system will prove healthy and beneficial in the long term and actually strengthen the socialist system of the DPRK.
We strongly denounce the latest sanctions as they transgress on the DPRK's sovereignty but believe that equipped with the idea of self-reliance , the Juche idea , the DPRK will win through.
