North Korea accuses U.N. of double standards over missiles

North Korea is warning the UN Security Council against criticising the country’s defence capabilities

This all follows the rogue nation restarting its missile program after a six-month hiatus.

But North Korea’s Foreign Ministry believes the UN is engaging in a game of double standards, and says it would never make such comments about America’s defence capabilities

North Korea said on Sunday the United Nations Security Council applied double standards over military activities among U.N. member states, state media KCNA said, amid international criticism over its recent missile tests. Edward Baran reports.

North Korea said on Sunday (October 3) the UN Security Council applied double standards over military activities among U.N. member states, state media KCNA said.

It comes amid international criticism over its recent missile tests.

The Council met behind closed doors on Friday upon requests from the United States and other countries over the North’s missile launches.

The meeting came a day after Pyongyang fired a newly developed anti-aircraft missile, the latest in a recent series of weapons tests.

They include the launches of a previously unseen hypersonic missile, ballistic missiles and a cruise missile with potential nuclear capabilities.

The North Korean foreign ministry’s Department of International Organisations said the Security Council meeting means an encroachment on its sovereignty.

It accused the Council of double standards as it remains silent about U.S. joint military exercises and weapons tests with allies.

North Korea warned the council could face consequences if it continues to breach the North’s sovereignty quote “with the double-dealing stick”

Pyongyang said in recent weeks that its weapons tests are aimed at boosting its defense capabilities.

These drills come amid escalating tensions in the region, with Beijing asserting its sovereignty over Taiwan, denouncing the inauguration of President Lai Ching-te and labelling this one of several “separatist acts”, as reported by Reuters.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
