“I often say that I consider the Secretary General of the United Nations to be a person from the White House or the US State Department,” said Cho Son Hui, quoted by MTI, referring to the North Korean state news agency.

I deeply regret the attitude of the UN Secretary General. He makes strongly condemnable statements. It flies in the face of the principles and goals of the UN Charter, according to which it should maintain impartiality, objectivity and fairness in all matters

added the head of the ministry.

Xu Sunhui accused António Guterres of turning a blind eye to the United States and its allies taking the issue of the missile test to the UN Security Council (UNSC). As he said, “this clearly proves that he is a puppet of the United States.”

In addition, the minister defended his country’s missile tests, saying that they are a legitimate exercise of the right to self-defense in the face of “provocative nuclear war exercises” by the United States and its allies.

He added that for him, “the most shocking and reprehensible thing” is that Guterres blames North Korea for the flare-up of tensions on the Korean Peninsula, and not the United States.

Earlier in a statement, the UN Secretary General strongly condemned North Korea’s missile launch last Friday and called on the Pyongyang leadership to immediately stop further provocative actions. At Japan’s request, the UN Security Council will hold an extraordinary meeting on Monday.

On Friday, North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that, according to reports by the Japanese Coast Guard and National Defense Minister Yasukazu Hamada, traveled hundreds of kilometers before crashing into the sea about 210 kilometers from the island of Hokkaido.

An army of supersonic American bombers and fighter jets set off for North Korea

The United States has deployed supersonic bombers and fighter jets in response to North Korea’s recent missile tests. AB-1B bombers conducted a joint air exercise with other South Korean and American warplanes last weekend, the South Korean Chief of Staff said.

The exercises were intended to prove the United States’ commitment to South Korea, while the allies demonstrated their common defense posture against North Korea.
