The DPRK delegate clarified the principled stand of the government of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea during the discussion of the agenda item “Measures against International Terror” at the Committee 6 of the 75th UN General Assembly session on the 6th.
Noting that the primary attention must be directed to eradicating the state terror aimed at overthrowing the system of sovereign states in the international battle against terror, he said:
The state terror to change the regime of a sovereign state is the worst terror in gross violation of the UN Charter which defined the principle of respect of sovereignty and non-interference in internal affairs and the international law.
This year alone attempts to topple down the legitimate governments of sovereign states including Venezuela and Syria and blockaded economic terror were committed. Any specific country or forces must not be allowed to abuse anti-terror for attaining their political purpose.
The international convention against terror now on discussion must comprise the provisions that can question and eradicate the state terror of specific countries grossly violating the sovereignty of legitimate states with high-handedness and outrages.
Due attention must be also directed to eliminating the source of terror. Terror is rooted in domination, interference, poverty, social inequality and racial and religious discrimination.
Today’s unstable reality hit by unprecedented worldwide epidemic causes the danger liable to destructive terror and demands more efforts for eliminating the source of terror.
It is the consistent stand of the DPRK government to oppose any forms of terror and any support to terror.
The DPRK will discharge its mission and duty as ever to fundamentally eradicate all sorts of terror and defend peace and stability of the Korean peninsula and the region, he added.
