DPRK's Rejection of UNSC's "Joint Statement" Supported in Britain
Pyongyang, May 14 (KCNA) -- British organizations issued a joint statement on May 7 in support of an answer given by the DPRK Foreign Ministry that rejected a "joint statement" of permanent members of the UN Security Council.

They were the Association for the Study of Songun Policy, the Group for the Study of the Juche Idea and the British Branch of the Korean Friendship Association.

The statement dismissed the UNSC's interference in and demeanor over the internal affairs of the DPRK as inadmissible and unfair.

We fully support the stand of the DPRK, the statement said, and went on:

The permanent members of the UNSC went too far in their acts as they were double-faced.

The permanent members top the world list of countries that conducted nuclear tests.

Moreover, the United States is the only country that used nuclear weapons.

Nevertheless, the UNSC proposed an unacceptable demand at the instigation of the U.S.

The UNSC is increasingly losing international trust and is being reduced to a troublesome body.

It is a legitimate right of the DPRK to develop outer space and the nuclear power industry for peaceful purposes.

It is another legitimate right of the DPRK to access nuclear deterrent to counter the U.S. imperialists' nuclear threat.

The criticism of the DPRK's development of space and nuclear power industry is part of sordid and black-hearted attempt to obstruct its independent development and bring down its socialist system centered on popular masses.

The UNSC was reduced into a tool serving the U.S. imperialists and its followers in their efforts to stifle the DPRK.

The acts of the UNSC's permanent members run counter to the September 19 statement.

The UNSC's recent "joint statement" does not give any help to settling the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula but renders it more complicated, instead.

We support the DPRK's independent and legitimate right to nuclear use.
