Pyongyang, May 20 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is trying hard to create international atmosphere for sanctions against the DPRK over the test-fire of its ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12.
What is ridiculous is that the U.S. and its vassal forces advertise that more than 20 countries and international bodies denounced the launch of rocket Hwasong-12, claiming that their anti-DPRK moves were enjoying international support.
A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement on Friday branded such behavior as a cynical ploy of making profound confusing of right and wrong.
The statement said:
Now several times more countries than stated by the hostile forces oppose the U.S. hostile policy and its frantic joint military drills, nuclear threats and military adventurous moves which have aggravated the situation in the Korean peninsula and the region and compelled the DPRK to bolster up its nuclear force.
At a recent UN Security Council emergency meeting, the U.S. representative complained that some countries mislead the public opinion, contending that the U.S. threatens north Korea. This shows the position of the U.S. floundering in a dilemma.
No matter how hard the U.S. may try, it can never cover up its criminal nature as aggressor and provocateur disturbing peace and security in the region and the rest of the world.
When lies and fabrications did not work on the international community desirous of independence and justice, some maniacs of the Trump administration forced other countries to make decision for supporting north Korea or the U.S. They have behaved rudely, reigning over the UN, threatening that the U.S. would impose strict sanctions upon any country, organization or individual and take issue with any international body, when they support north Korea.
If such high-handed and arbitrary practices are allowed in the international arena, neither independent development of sovereign countries nor genuine international justice can be ensured and the world would become a barren land where the robber-like U.S. rules the supreme.
The tightened pressure upon the DPRK by the U.S. misleading the world public would only compel the DPRK to bolster up its nuclear deterrent for justice. -0-
