IMO Reduced into Tool for White House

Pyongyang, June 4 (KCNA) -- Kim Myong Chol, an international affairs analyst of the DPRK, issued the following article "The International Maritime Organization reduced into a tool moving under the control of the White House" on June 4:

The 107th meeting of the Maritime Security Committee of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) on May 31 forcibly adopted a "resolution" branding the DPRK's measures for bolstering up its self-defence capabilities as "violation of UNSC resolution" and "threat to international maritime security", pursuant to the U.S. and its vassal forces' hostile policy toward the DPRK.

It was the first time in the history of IMO to cook up such resolution criticizing the missile launch of an individual country. This goes to prove that IMO has been completely politicized, abandoning its original mission of promoting international cooperation in the field of maritime security.

At the IMO meeting on the day when the DPRK launched a military reconnaissance satellite, the U.S. and its followers postponed all the discussions and forcibly adopted an anti-DPRK "resolution", thus openly revealing their sinister intention to incite international criticism over the DPRK's satellite launch.

The DPRK's measures for bolstering up its military capabilities are an exercise of its sovereign rights for self-defence to protect the security of the country and the people from the ever-more reckless military hostile acts of the U.S. and its vassal forces and to defend the regional peace and stability.

This is a legitimate right of a sovereign state clearly stipulated in the UN Charter and relevant international laws, and an international organization has neither authority nor qualification to say this or that about it.

As for our missile launching activities, our army has conducted the missile test-firing drills in the safest way in thorough consideration of the security of regional countries and in fact, there has been no harm to any country so far.

On the contrary, the world witnessed not a few accidents due to the fall of rockets or missiles launched by Western and other countries.

Moreover, for its recent military reconnaissance satellite launch, the DPRK issued a maritime warning to the Maritime Security Agency of Japan, a regional troubleshooting body, as specified by IMO and also briefed the organization in advance on the period of launch and the impact point of the carrier rocket remains, though it was not obligatory.

What was surprising is that IMO, when receiving our previous notice, said it was not obligatory and then later impudently talked about "violation of the regulations".

I would like to ask the organization that if the remains of satellite carrier rocket launched by the DPRK pose a threat to the maritime security, the debris of rockets launched by the U.S. or south Korea are floating still in the sky like cilia, not dropping into the sea.

Disregarding such simple and clear scientific principle, IMO seeks to violate even the exercise of legitimate rights to self-defence by a sovereign state. This excess of authority makes one regard the organization as an office of the White House rather than an expert body of the UN.

If IMO continues to take an unfair and prejudiced double-dealing attitude in its activities as now, being reduced into a plaything of the U.S., it will surely lose the confidence of the international community and forfeit its existence as an organization whose mission is to guarantee the international maritime security.

It would be good for IMO, which is degrading its international reputation as a prestigious UN expert body under the pressure of the U.S. high-handed and arbitrary practices, not to talk about the DPRK's sovereignty right again for preserving its honor.

As IMO responded to the DPRK's advance notice on its satellite launch with the adoption of an anti-DPRK "resolution", we will regard this as its official manifestation of stand that the DPRK's advance notice is no longer necessary.

In the future, IMO should know and take measures by itself over the period of the DPRK's satellite launch and the impact point of its carrier and be prepared for taking full responsibility for all the consequences to be entailed from it. -0-

Press Statement of Kim Yo Jong, Vice Department Director of C.C., WPK

Pyongyang, June 4 (KCNA) -- Kim Yo Jong, vice department director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), issued the following press statement on Saturday:

The UNSC held a meeting to take up the DPRK's right to satellite launching as a single agenda item at the U.S. gangster-like request. As a result, it produced another shameful record of working as a political appendage of an individual country.

The UNSC have held more than 9 000 official meetings since its establishment, but this time it called a meeting to take issue with a sovereign state's right to space development quite different from aggression and war, major threats to the international peace and security. This should be regarded as an insult to and serious distortion of the spirit of the UN Charter and as a deliberate delinquency in the genuine mission of the organization.

It is today's universal reality that over 5 000 satellites with various aims and missions are now in their orbits around the Earth and even private companies are taking an active part in the space development.

This being a hard reality, the UNSC is continuously taking discriminative and rude action to take issue with only the launch of a satellite by the DPRK, a full-fledged member of the UN.

I am very unpleased that the UNSC so often calls to account the DPRK's exercise of its rights as a sovereign state at the request of the U.S., and bitterly condemn and reject it as the most unfair and biased act of interfering in its internal affairs and violating its sovereignty.

To make the UNSC take up the DPRK's exercise of its legal rights as a sovereign state precisely means the undisguised disregard for and violation of the DPRK's sovereignty.

Without considering the changed security situation of the Korean Peninsula, the UNSC is trying to unilaterally deprive the DPRK of its sovereignty and rights to existence and development, blindly following the articles of the illegal and unfair anti-DPRK "sanctions resolutions" cooked up 10-odd years ago. This is a very dangerous act as it can cause serious imbalance of power in the region and the structural damage of the peace and stability.

If the UNSC thinks the unbalanced situation, in which one side suffers only and the other side bullies it collectively, will continue prevailing, the UNSC is just mistaken.

If the UNSC persists in its unfair and prejudiced anti-DPRK action, it should give a responsible answer to whether it is capable of defusing the ensuing serious instability of the situation and guaranteeing the security of the regional countries.

Some countries joining the U.S. racket of denouncing the DPRK are unconditionally dancing to the tune of the U.S. without any ground. Their acts are a sight to see

As for those countries, they have neither reason nor ground to stand up against the DPRK in the light of their security interests and there is no need for them to be concerned about the military reconnaissance satellite of the DPRK.

If those countries think that it is beneficial to them to be at the U.S. beck and call, I'd like to remind them that there is a way of exalting their national prestige and guaranteeing their security without standing on the U.S. side and there exist not a few independent countries applying the way.

I'd like to make it clear once again that the launch of a military reconnaissance satellite by the DPRK is a legal countermeasure to cope with the U.S. and its vassal forces' military threats that have already crossed the red line, and an exercise of the right to self defense aimed at safeguarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity.

More than 6 100 days have passed since the first anti-DPRK "sanctions resolution", a product of the hostile policy of the U.S. and its vassal forces towards the DPRK, was fabricated 17 years ago. During this period the DPRK has never recognized the illegal "sanctions resolutions" against it and it will remain unchanged in such stand - no matter that such "sanctions resolutions" continue to be cooked up.

Regardless of the instinctive reflex action of the UNSC against the DPRK's exercise of its sovereign right, the DPRK will continue to take proactive measures to exercise all the lawful rights of a sovereign state, including the one to military reconnaissance satellite launch.

Peace and security in the Korean Peninsula is guaranteed by the powerful self-defence capability of the DPRK, not by the resolution invented by the "political tool" of the U.S.

The DPRK will consistently make strong responses and do what it should do nonstop until the U.S. and its vassal forces feel bored and admit that they made a wrong choice. -0- (Juche112.6.4.)

From Voice of Korea Cradle

  Tradition says that the greatest of sorrows is that of a homeless person from olden times. Home is indispensable for a man.

  In the Democratic People's Republic of Korea the state provides all people with dwelling houses free of charge.

Many dwelling houses have been built across the country in recent few years, making a contribution to the improvement of the people's living.

  It is the ordinary working people that have settled in the new houses, monumental creations intensively showing the people-first idea of the Workers' Party of Korea.

The Eighth Congress of the WPK held in January Juche 110(2021) decided to build 50,000 flats in the capital city alone and to this end, to build 10,000 flats every year while pushing ahead with the housing construction on a nationwide scale during the 2021-2025 five-year plan.

  At the Second Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Party Central Committee held in February Juche 110(2021) the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the WPK, stressed that the housing construction is an important work to provide the people with a stable and civilized life and a political issue to defend the authority of the Party Congress.

  As he was so concerned about the issue of building the houses for the people, he took part in the inaugural ceremony of the first-stage project to build 10,000 flats in the Hwasong area in April to cut the tape of inauguration and wish the working people to lead a happy, harmonious and worthwhile life in the new houses generation after generation.

 That is why all the Korean people say the socialist motherland led by the peerlessly great man Kim Jong Un is the cradle of their life, a genuine people's country, where their interests and conveniences are prioritized and absolutized, and that their life is infinitely proud and worthwhile.

ASSPUK, BGSJI , KFA UK and BSCPRKP slam UN Secretary for interfering in the DPRK 's sovereign right to launch satellites


                                       London 2nd of June  Juche 112(2023)

The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK),, the British Group for the Study of the  Juche Idea(BGSJ)) , the Korean Friendship Association of the UK ( KFA UK) and the   British Solidarity Committee for the Peace and Reunification in the Korean Peninsula(BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement in support of the press statement of comrade Jo Chol Su, director general of the Department of International Organizations of the Foreign Ministry of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK);

Recently , the UN Secretary General Gueterres made a statement denouncing the launch of a military reconaissance satellite by the DPRK . Comrade Jo Chol Su , director general of the department of international organisations of the DPRK FM issued a press statement strongly protesting against the ill -concieved and biased remarks of the UN Secretary General.

The UN Secretary General is showing considerable bias , unfairness and a complete lack of impatriality .  As UN Secretary General he is duly obliged to treat all UN member states fairly and equally . Many UN member states. At least 11 UN member states have launched satellites but Gueterres only takes issue with the DPRK for doing so . This shows exreme bias and goes against both the letter and the spirit of UN rules.

The UN Secretary General claims that the DPRK is banned from launching satellites under UN resolutions but this is a nonsense argument . Firstly , because the UN resolutions refer to nuclear weapons and ICBMs not satellites which are a different matter . Secondly , the UN resolutions are illegal and have been rejected by the DPRK.

The DPRKs satellite launch is its independent right . Moreover the launch of a military reconaissance satellite is absolutely essential for the DPRK to monitor the unceasing and continous US imperialist military moves against it . As comrade Jo Chol Su says 'Nobody is entitled to take issue with this, even though he is the UN secretary-general."

We support the press statement ofComrade Jo Chol Su , director general of the department of international organisations of the DPRK FM and reaffirm our support for the independent right of the DPRK to launch satellites .
