Pyongyang, April 27 (KCNA) -- The DPRK permanent mission to the United Nations on Wednesday released a press statement.
Recalling that the UN Security Council turned away from the request of the DPRK made in March to raise an issue of U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises to be discussed immediately, the statement said this clearly shows once again that the UNSC has turned into a political tool of a certain power, throwing away all its mandate and trust of international community.
It went on to say:
By adopting illegal "sanction resolutions" so far, the UNSC has taken issue with the DPRK over its righteous self-defensive measures taken to safeguard its sovereignty, dignity and security.
It is the reality of the UNSC at present that any legitimate exercise of sovereignty by an independent state is branded as "illegal" and any of its counter measure for self-defense as "provocative", while the U.S.-south Korea joint military exercises, root cause for aggravation of the tension on the Korean peninsula, are connived openly by double standard unilaterally set by the U.S. in its interests.
The behavior based on unfairness and double standard of the UNSC which plays totally to the tune of the U.S. proves once again that the DPRK has been entirely righteous when it has been increasing in every way its military capabilities for self-defense and preemptive attack with nuclear force as its pivot.
Now the Trump administration is trying to bring the DPRK into submission by deploying nuclear aircraft carrier strike groups one after another to the waters off the Korean peninsula, but such kind of intimidation and blackmail can never frighten the DPRK.
It is the unshakable will of the DPRK to go to the end if the U.S. wants to remain unchanged in its confrontational stance.
Our toughest counteractions will include a surprise preemptive attack involving maneuvers on the ground, in seas, under waters and in the air and various other methods and the Korean-style tough counter-actions will be promptly taken to cope with the provocations of any forms and levels from the U.S.
The world will clearly witness this time the fact that the days are gone never to return when the U.S. used to impose its will upon other countries.
The DPRK, as a peace-loving socialist state, highly values peace, but it neither fears a war nor wants to avoid it.
As it has a powerful nuclear deterrent to protect itself from the U.S. nuclear threats, the DPRK will readily react to an all-out war with an all-out war, a nuclear war with nuclear strikes of its own style and surely win a victory in the death-defying struggle against the U.S. imperialists. -0-
