Press Statement of Korea-Europe Association
Pyongyang, December 22 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson of the Korea-Europe Association on Friday issued the following statement:
It was reported that on Dec. 19, in an interview with a newspaper in Britain, the British defense secretary made reckless remarks such as "the pariah regime is on the pathway to have ballistic missiles that could strike London", "this is a real threat to the U.K." and "Britain has to step up in terms of dealing with it", referring to the self-defensive state nuclear force of our dignified Republic.
We are shocked that the current defense secretary of Britain, right after taking the office, expressed his view that our state nuclear force poses a "threat to London".
The defense secretary of a country should at least have the ability to see what constitutes a threat to the country and who is the culprit behind a threat to the world peace.
It is no coincidence that he is criticized even at home as a person without basic military knowledge.
It is a fact all people with proper sense would know that Trump is the rogue who uttered the words of totally destroying a sovereign country in the sacred UN arena and the U.S. is the rogue state that threatens to use force to anyone who is even slightly offending to it.
Our deterrence is the guarantee that defends the sovereignty of the country and nation and the rights to existence and safeguards peace in the Korean peninsula and the region against the U.S.
Our nuclear force would not pose any threat to any country and region as long as the interests of the DPRK are not infringed upon.
Nevertheless, the British defense secretary is crying out that our nuclear force is posing a threat to the U.K. This cannot be explained in any other way but as a servile act of Britain to give good impression to the U.S. who is inciting international cooperation to isolate and pressure our country by "demonizing" it.
If the U.K. continues to kowtow to the U.S. in this way, others will say that the U.K is not acting in a way that deserves the prestige as a permanent member state of the UNSC and it will only tarnish its image.
