Pyongyang, May 3 (KCNA) -- The Permanent Mission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the United Nations issued a press statement on Wednesday with regard to the indecent statement the United States made relating the recent incident of hacking the database of Security Council 1718 Sanctions Committee of the United Nations to the DPRK as follows:
The US again took issue with the DPRK during discussion on the recent incident of hacking database of 1718 Sanctions Committee at the Committee's closed meeting on 30 April, 2018.
Saying "it is north Korea that has the biggest concern in the work of 1718 Sanctions Committee and owns the hacking capacity", the US and hostile forces forcibly related the DPRK to the incident, while urging upon the Committee to thoroughly probe the true state and take steps.
It is the stereotyped trick to keep up the atmosphere of sanctions and pressure against the DPRK at all costs by instigating the Security Council 1718 Sanctions Committee and it is not worthy for consideration.
The DPRK has never recognized the illegal and unlawful Security Council's "sanctions resolutions" and 1718 Sanctions Committee and is not interested in what the Sanctions Committee does.
The US and hostile forces should squarely recognize the trend of the times and make efforts to do the work helpful to detente and peace process on the Korean peninsula rather than manipulating plots with that hacking incident. -0-
