The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), Juche Idea Study Group of England (JISGE) , UK Korean Friendship Association (UK KFA ) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula(BSCPRKP) issued the following joint statement supporting the DPRK Foreign Ministry statement on the illegal seizure of a DPRK cargo ship;
A spokesperson for the DPRK Foreign Ministry made a statement in relation to the illegal and piratical seizure of a civilian DPRK trading ship on the high seas and taking the ship to a US colony on Samoa of the Pacific . The US arrogantly declared that the DPRK has been dispossessed of the ship and the US owns it .
This is not only an illegal act of piracy on the high seas but a brazen act of robbery by the US and contrary to international law. The so-called UNSC sanctions resolutions against the DPRK are all illegal , have no validity in international law and have been consistently rejected by the DPRK .
The spokesperson for the DPRK Foreign Ministry rightfully stated that "Moreover, the United States' impudent act of forcing other countries into observance of its domestic law is indeed a wanton violation of the universally accepted international laws which make clear that in no case can a sovereign state be an object of jurisdiction of other countries". Thus the US is violating the sovereignty of other countries and acting as a high handed imperialist power.
The actions of the US in seizing the ship are complete negation of the letter and spirit of the 2018 June 12th DPRK-US joint statement .Our organisations do wonder what will become of the agreement between the DPRK and US and what the future will hold for DPRK-US relations if the US continues in this fashion .
We support the just and legitimate demand of the DPRK for the immediate return of the ship !
HANDS OFF PEOPLE'S KOREA !
DOWN WITH YANKEE PIRACY !
NO TO SANCTIONS !
