Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- Jo Chol Su, director general of the Department of International Organizations of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, made public the following press statement on Oct. 4:
On Sept. 30, the UNSC took a vote on the anti-Russia resolution submitted by the U.S. and it was rejected by Russia's righteous exercise of its veto right.
There were referendums in the People's Republic of Donetsk, the People's Republic of Lugansk and Regions of Kherson and Zaporozhye from Sept. 23 to 27. They were held in keeping with the UN Charter specifying the principles of the equality of peoples and their right to self-determination and according to legitimate methods and procedures so that the will of the residents of the two republics and the two regions could be fully reflected. An overwhelming majority of the voters supported the integration into Russia.
We respect the will of the residents who aspired toward the integration into Russia and support the Russian government's stand of making the above-said regions components of Russia.
To maintain the unchallenged "unipolar world", the U.S. interferes in the internal affairs of independent countries and infringes upon their legal rights by abusing the UNSC. This is the same old trick of the U.S., and the world has witnessed lots of similar illegal acts of the U.S. in not only the 20th century, but also the 21st century.
The U.S. unleashed wars of aggression against sovereign states including former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq, but it has not been called into question by the UNSC.
The days are going never to return when the U.S. can use the UNSC as its shield and means of aggression for maintaining its supremacy.
Highhanded and arbitrary practices and partial and double-standard acts can never be pardoned in any case.
If the UNSC is going to violate the independent rights and fundamental interests of a sovereign state with the illogical and gangster-like double standards running counter to the aim and principle of the UN Charter, it will be held totally responsible for the consequences to be entailed by it. -0-www.kcna.kp (Juche111.10.4.)
