G7's Hostile Remarks Censured by Department Director General of DPRK Foreign Ministry
G7's Hostile Remarks Censured by Department Director
General of DPRK Foreign Ministry
Pyongyang, November 14 (KCNA) -- Jo Chol Su, director general of the Department of
International Organizations of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, answered the question put by KCNA on
Monday as regards the fact that G7 foreign ministers pulled up the DPRK in their recent "joint
Reporter: The G7 foreign ministers reportedly slandered the DPRK's exercise of self-defensive
and legitimate sovereignty again in a "joint statement" released after their talks recently held in
Tokyo, Japan. Would you please comment on this?
Director general: I resolutely reject and most strongly condemn the "joint statement" of the G7
foreign ministers' meeting, which is peppered with groundless and unreasonable accusations
seriously encroaching upon the dignity and sovereignty of the DPRK.
G7, which is no more than a group for only a few countries' interests, can not represent the
G7, which has caused and fomented the recent international crisis, says this or that to find fault
with independent sovereign states. This is just a mockery of and insult to the international
community aspiring after fairness and equity.
I think G7 had better look at its image reflected in the eyes of the international community first
before accusing others.
Even at this moment the U.S. is shipping cluster bombs and depleted uranium bombs, the usage
of which are completely banned by international law, and other deadly weapons and huge lethal
war hardware to Ukrainian battlefields to deliberately destroy peace and stability in the European
In the Middle East, it is conniving at and fomenting indiscriminate military strikes at Gaza Strip
while zealously shielding Israel's hideous massacre of civilians as the "right to defence".
Meanwhile, it is keen on muscle-flexing in the Taiwan Strait and other parts of the South China
Sea, talking about "freedom of navigation", "international order based on rules" and "opposition to
power-based change of status quo". It has staged a series of bilateral and multi-party joint naval
military exercises with their allies to escalate the regional military tensions to the maximum.
In the Korean peninsula, it is pushing the situation to the brink of a nuclear war by establishing
different nuclear confrontation policies, including the "Washington Declaration," and accelerating
the efforts for routine deployment of its strategic nuclear submarines, strategic bombers and other
nuclear strategic assets called "three nuclear axes."
Furthermore, Japan which holds the G7 chairmanship this year has no qualification to talk about
Japan, at the instigation of the U.S., is desperately pursuing its wild ambition for turning itself into
a military giant, setting it as its state policy to realize militarization. It is just a trouble-maker which
has caused international uproar by discharging nuclear-polluted water containing a lot of
poisonous substances into the Pacific, a sea common to mankind, recently in defiance of the
repeated protests of the regional community.
Reporter: What about other G7 member states?
Director general: Britain, France, Germany and Canada, too, have disgraceful records by doing
considerable harm to international peace and security.
Like the U.S., Britain is pursuing the protraction of the Ukrainian crisis, offering depleted uranium
bombs to the Kiev authorities and providing it with Storm Shadow and other cruise missiles with a
range of more than 250 km and a huge amount of latest anti-tank weapons.
It also dispatched an aircraft carrier and other forces to the Asia-Pacific region and unhesitatingly
transferred the nuclear submarine technology to its ally as a member of the confrontational
security alliance AUKUS to seriously disturb regional and global peace and stability.
Other countries are also actively joining the U.S. in its moves to build the "Asian-version NATO"
by dispatching various warships, including frigates, and patrol planes and fighters squadrons to
regularly stage joint drills with Japan and the south Korean puppet forces in the Korean
peninsula, its vicinity and other parts of the Asia-Pacific region.
All facts go to clearly prove that G7 is a confrontational group of destroyers and violators of peace
and stability who stir up and aggravate distrust, conflict, confrontation and armed clash across the
Reporter: I think such G7 has neither qualification nor justification to fault others. Then, can you
tell me the reason why G7 persistently pulls up the DPRK and other independent sovereign
states over their exercise of the legitimate right to self-defence?
Director general: It is crystal-clear. It is the sinister intention of G7 to divert international criticism
away from itself by employing such a trite method as hyping up the "threat" from independent
Now the international community is strongly reacting to the irresponsible and exclusive peace-
breaking moves of G7 in different parts of the world.
It is well illustrated by the fact that even European countries are increasingly vocal opposing the
military support for Ukraine.
The G7 member states have faced worst-ever internal and external crisis for having pursued
reactionary domestic and foreign policies.
The more recklessly G7 pulls up independent sovereign states over their exercise of the right to
self-defence, the more clearly it will betray its criminal entity as a peace strangler, confrontation
maniac and nuclear war merchant.
G7 is just the main dangerous source of destroying global peace and security and the main
stumbling block to the establishment of a just international order.
It has lost the justification for its existence.
G7, the remnant of the Cold War, should be dismantled immediately, and this will be the first step
toward defusing the present international crisis and restoring global peace. -0-
