NK slams UN's calls for its denuclearization

Vice-minister for international organizations at North Korea's Foreign Ministry, Kim Son Gyong, criticized the repeated calls for the denuclearization of his country United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres made recently as they "grossly lack impartiality and fairness, and go against the obligations of his duty."

"It demands the unilateral disarmament, and Secretary-General Guterres perhaps knows well that the DPRK has totally rejected it without any toleration," Kim said in a statement published by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

His remarks came after Guterres's visit to South Korea earlier this week, during which he voiced his support for "the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, especially North Korea, and to say that this goal is very fundamentally important for us to achieve regional security, peace, and stability."
