N.Korea accuses U.N. Security Council of double standards over missile test By Reuters



Hyonhee Shin

SEOUL (Reuters). Despite international condemnation for its missile test, North Korea claimed that the United Nations Security Council used double standards to determine military activity among member countries.

After being asked by the United States, and other countries regarding the North’s missile launches, the Council met behind closed-doors on Friday.

This meeting took place a day following Pyongyang’s launch of an anti-aircraft missile. It was the latest weapon test in recent weapons testing, which included the launch of a hypersonic missile and ballistic missiles, as well as a cruise missile that could have nuclear capability.

Jo Chol Su is the director of North Korea’s Department of International Organisations. He said that the UNSC meeting signifies an “open ignorance of” and “wanton encroachment on the country’s sovereignty as well as “serious intolerable provocations.”

Jo accused Jo of accusing the Council to have double standards, as it continues to silence about U.S. joint exercises with allies and weapons tests with them while pointing out the North’s “self defence” activities.

Jo stated that “this is a denial or impartiality objectivity equilibrium, lifelines U.N. activities and an obvious manifestation of double-dealing standards” in a statement released by the KCNA news agency.
