Pyongyang, May 25 (KCNA) — The Swiss Preparatory Committee for Gathering 2017-Praise to the Great Persons of Mt Paektu, the Switzerland-Korea Committee and the Swiss Group for the Study of the Juche Idea on May 16 issued a joint statement in support of the DPRK’s test-fire of ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12.
Noting that the DPRK categorically rejected the press statement of the UNSC, which criticized the DPRK’s test-fire of new ballistic rocket as “threat” while conniving at the U.S. test-launch of intercontinental ballistic missiles, the joint statement said:
The gangster logic of the UNSC, nothing but a puppet of the U.S., is that the U.S. is allowed to do whatever it desires but the DPRK is not allowed to do anything.
The test-fire of Hwasong-12, conducive to ensuring the peace and stability of the Korean peninsula, was for bolstering up the self-reliant defense force and it gave no impact on the security of neighboring countries.
Nevertheless, the UNSC in its press statement asserted that the test-fire aggravates the situation of the peninsula and the region.
This is unacceptable sophism and plot and behind it is the U.S. hatching a criminal counter-revolutionary scenario to disarm and bring down socialist Korea.
However, the DPRK will remain unfazed at any threat and blackmail and continue to bolster up its nuclear deterrent for self-defense and peace.
