“Sanctions against the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) are aimed at preventing our foreign trade even in the fields crucial for our people’s survival,” he said. 

“These resolutions are totally illegal and run contrary to the United Nations Charter and the statutes of the Inter-Parliamentary Union. It is a manifestation of state terrorism aimed at destroying modern civilization and plunging the Korean Peninsula into medieval darkness,” he stressed.

“The US imposed a horrible and absolutely unfair economic blockade against us, as well as sanctions,” he continued. 

“At the same time, the measures that we have been taking for self-defense are branded as ‘a global threat,’ while they are only aimed at ensuring the existence and security of our country, which has been facing US threats,” Ahn Dong Chun pointed out.
