UK KFA condemns Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Hwasong 14
UK KOREAN FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION
7th of July 2017
The UK Korean Friendship Association issued a statement today rejecting and condemning Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson's statement on the Hwasong-14 ICBM test fire by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea :
We totally reject and condemn the statement issued by the British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on the Hwasong -14 ICBM test by People's Korea because it is a flagrant and unwarranted violation of the DPRK's rights to independent self-defence and constitutes inteferference in the internal affairs of the DPRK.
The ICBM test by People's Korea is a purely self-defensive measure , it is aimed at detering aggression and as such is not a threat to other countries. Leave the DPRK alone and they will leave you alone . The DPRK has long been exposed to the nuclear threat of the US and the US is conducting nuclear war exercises all the time on the Korean peninsula threatening the not only the security of the DPRK but the whole Asia-Pacific region !
If Mr Johnson is so worried about nukes and ICBMs why isn't he condeming the US which has the largest number of nuclear weapons in the world and has many ICBMs and also carries out tests of missiles all the time . Britain itself has nuclear weapons and is going to renew Trident .
The DPRK does not need permission from anyone whether it is Britain or the US or Japan or the UN to carry out missile tests . The DPRK has made it clear that it rejects the UN Security Council resolutions against . The UNSC resolutions against the DPRK are illegal under international law so there is no need for the DPRK to be bound by them.
As to Mr Johnson's allegations about 'starvation' in People's Korea. This is a complete falsehood. Delegations from UK KFA have visited the DPRK several times in the past few years and not seen one person starving or begging. Mr Johnson needs to be reminded that is it the UK that has Foodbanks not the DPRK.
We again applaud the successful test-fire of the Hwasong-14 ICBM by the DPRK
The UK must follow a totally independent policy on Korea and not serve the interests of the United States . The UK should not be a party to US warmongering in Korea .
HANDS OFF PEOPLE'S KOREA !
NO TO SANCTIONS !
NO TO WAR !
