Pyongyang, April 14 (KCNA) — To dismantle the “UN Command” illegally kept in south Korea for more than half a century should be the first object of the UN reform.
The DPRK delegate said this in a speech at a meeting of the Special Committee on the UN Charter and the Enhancement of Organization Role on April 3.
The special committee should pay special attention to dissolving such an illegal organization as the “UN Command” in south Korea, he said, and went on:
The “UN Command” illegally framed up by the United States, abusing the name of the UN, is not only laying obstacles in the settlement of the Korean issue but impairing the confidence in the UN.
The 30th UN General Assembly session admitted the unnecessariness of keeping the “UN Command” in south Korea and adopted a resolution on its dismantlement.
And the UN recently made it clear that the “UN Command” in south Korea is not the UN forces but the U.S.-led army which is not under any UN command.
Nevertheless, the U.S. is insisting on the continued existence of the “UN Command” in south Korea, which is aimed to continue to abuse the name of the UN in a bid to maintain its military hegemony in the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia.
The DPRK delegation demands a clear removal of the traces that the name of the UN has been abused for an impure political and military objective in the past century through the current UN reform.
