The DPRK Foreign Ministry warned the West against increasing its military presence in the Asia-Pacific region.

The DPRK will be forced to reconsider its approaches and take the necessary measures against a number of Western countries if they continue to increase their military presence in the Asia-Pacific region under the pretext of Pyongyang’s violation of UN Security Council sanctions, according to a statement by the head of the foreign policy department of the DPRK Foreign Ministry.

“The DPRK, based on in-depth analysis of the negative impact from the alarming behavior of some countries, including Canada, Australia, the UK, Germany and France, which join the so-called “monitoring the violation of sanctions against Korea,” will take the necessary measures to consistently protect the sovereignty and security of the state “, the text of the statement said.

The statement notes that exercises between the naval forces of Great Britain and South Korea recently took place near the Korean Peninsula; Germany, France and New Zealand are moving their warships and aircraft to the Korean Peninsula one after another, and Canada plans to station a patrol officer at a Japanese military base. observation plane.

The DPRK Foreign Ministry also particularly noted the role of Australia, whose ship “invaded the waters around the Korean Peninsula, lifted a military helicopter into the air and threatened the maritime and air security of the surrounding countries, thereby creating the possibility of a very dangerous armed conflict.”


The statement states that the military presence of the above countries, carried out under the pretext of implementing Security Council resolutions of the world organization and compliance with international law, contradicts the purpose and principles of the UN Charter, “the basis of which is equality of sovereignty and non-interference in internal affairs.”

According to the head of the foreign policy department of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, the actions of US allies are further aggravating the unstable situation in the region and creating a significant danger to ensuring peace and security not only on the Korean Peninsula, but also in the Asia-Pacific region as a whole. In this regard, the North Korean diplomatic department expressed “serious concern about the irresponsible behavior of some countries joining the hostile policies and hegemonic strategy of the United States” and demanded an immediate end to the provocations.

“The reality in which some Western countries are using military force around our country, which is located far from them geopolitically, tells us a lot. If forceful involvement is their policy towards Korea, then we will have to reconsider the political approach towards them in our interests “, stated the DPRK Foreign Ministry.


They emphasized that Western countries should think deeply about the fact that their policy of unreasonable and blind submission to the United States will lead to “harm to their interests with their own hands.”
