October 10, 2019

North Korea has slammed a statement by European UN Security Council members urging strict enforcement of sanctions against Pyongyang for its latest missile test.

In a statement today, North Korean foreign ministry spokesperson accused the Europeans of double standards, calling the move a serious provocation.

He said the UN Security Council, which champions fairness and equity, picks fault with the just measure belonging to our right to self-defence, while keeping mum about the test-fire of Minuteman 3 inter-continental ballistic missile recently conducted by the United States.
