N. Korean Foreign Ministry Defends Missile Tests, Condemns “War-Fanatic” Bolton
A North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) spokesperson on Monday condemned U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton for recent remarks on the country’s recent missile tests, in comments carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the Nknews reported.
Reported in the KCNA article as a response to a reporter’s question, the MFA spokesperson defended the missile tests as part of “normal military exercises,” and described Bolton a “war-fanatic” threatening peace on the peninsula.
“Bolton deserves to be called a National Security Destruction Advisor who destroys peace and security, rather than a National Security Advisor working to guarantee security,” the spokesperson was quoted as having said.
The official also defended recent missile launches, stressing “it is only natural that something fired off will draw a certain trajectory, but it is like asking us to give up on our right to self-defense in not considering launch distance and rather demanding a prohibition on ballistic technology itself.”
“Our military exercises are not aimed at anyone, nor are they dangerous to neighboring countries, but [the U.S.] is impudently involving themselves in other countries’ affairs,” they added.
