Pyongyang, February 19 (KCNA) -- Kim Yo Jong, vice-department director of the Central
Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, issued the following press statement on Sunday:
If all the countries truly worry about the situation on the Korean peninsula and wish for peace and
stability, they should never tolerate the high-handed and arbitrary practices of the U.S. to turn the
UNSC with heavy responsibility for the international peace and security into a tool for its heinous
hostile policy toward the DPRK.
And they should not connive at the sinister attempts of the U.S. and its followers to make a
sovereign state give up its legitimate rights to self-defence, but let them know that such acts are
This time, too, the opponents to the DPRK committed an undisguised infringement upon its
sovereignty for no ground.
The U.S. and south Korea are openly showing their dangerous greed and attempt to gain the
military upper hand and predominant position in the Korean Peninsula, crying out for extended
deterrence and combined defence posture on the trite pretext for coping with any threat. This
further endangers the situation every moment, destroying the stability of the region.
The U.S. would be well-advised to stop saying that it is not hostile toward the DPRK and the door
to dialogue is open, hoodwinking the world, and to give up its foolish trick for earning the time
through dialogue. And it should stop all the actions posing threats to the security of our state and
refuse to tarnish the DPRK's dignity, always thinking twice for its own future security.
South Korea, too, had better think of the consequences to be entailed by its reckless acts.
We tell its fools that our ICBM will not be aimed at Seoul.
We still have no intention to stand face to face with them.
Upon authorization, I warn that we will watch every movement of the enemy and take
corresponding and very powerful and overwhelming counteraction against its every move hostile
to us. -0-
