DPRK Foreign Ministry Blasts U.S. New "Sanctions Doctrine"
Pyongyang, April 27 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Wednesday as the U.S. has come out with new "sanctions doctrine":

Officials of the U.S. administration including those of the Treasury Department have suggested so-called "sanctions doctrine" to ratchet up the sanctions and pressure on other countries.

Throughout history the U.S., regarding sanctions as a major means for pursuing its foreign policy for aggression, deliberately wielded a sanctions stick against those countries and people disobedient to it in defiance of international law, thereby inflicting untold pain and misfortune upon them.

The "sanctions doctrine" advocated by the U.S. is the evil "doctrine" that can be produced only in the U.S., the hotbed of high-handed and arbitrary practices, as it is a collection of mean methods for bringing into submission those countries and their people courting its displeasure.

The gap between the rich and the poor is widening and the social inequality and conflict are festering with each passing day and people suffer from unemployment and economic difficulty. Moreover, innocent people fall victim to shooting sprees for the mere reason that they hurt one's feelings. This is daily occurrence in the U.S.

It is ridiculous for the U.S. to invent the "sanctions doctrine" to impose pain on others, far from minding its own business.

It is foolhardy for the daily declining U.S. to resort to sanctions against other countries. What matters here is that the U.S. sanctions have become a root cause of unreasonable pressure, inequality, tensions and stand-off in the international relations.

Countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America hit by U.S. sanctions stick should destroy the cesspool of high-handed and arbitrary practices in unity in order to stop the bigger disaster that may be caused by the evil "doctrine".
