“Ambassador TAE SONG HAN of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, President of the Conference on Disarmament, said that it was an honour and privilege for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to assume the presidency of the Conference. Ambassador Han congratulated his predecessor, the Ambassador of Cuba, who had made considerable efforts to take the Conference forward during his presidency. He also expressed gratitude to the Chinese and Cuban presidencies for their valuable contributions in establishing the five subsidiary bodies. He recalled that the United Nations Charter obligated all delegates to work collectively for achieving peace and security for all nations. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea remained committed to contributing to global peace and disarmament and attached importance to the work of the Conference on Disarmament. The Conference was the single multilateral disarmament negotiating forum and had a role to play in ensuring global peace and security. Throughout the presidency, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea would be guided by the rules of procedure, in particular rule 18. It would respect every delegation’s position when organizing the business of the Conference, while promoting a positive atmosphere of building trust, cooperation and productive dialogue among members” (UN Geneva – ‘Conference on Disarmament Holds First Plenary under the Presidency of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’ 02.06.2022).
The three last Presidents of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) or North Korea has worked to produce and the ability to build nuclear weapons. The North Koreans has used all tactics, metrics and markets to get a hold on technology or ability to make nuclear weapons. This has been done by all the leaders of Pyongyang. Therefore, the acknowledgment and the recognition of DPRK in the UN body of the disarmament conference of nuclear weapons is foolishness.
This isn’t the place or the sort of forum where the North Korean state has anything to do. They are neither believable or a representative state for that matter. The DPRK would sell their peasants as slave labour to get the right scientists, uranium and possible technical facility to build a “fat man” or a “little man” in 2022.
That’s why the news of DPRK working and representing this UN body or conference is ridiculous. It is like we supposed to take a blind eye or forget about what the DPRK have been working on for all these years.
It is the sort of propaganda victory and perfect for internal spin. That the DPRK see this as a way of legitimizing itself. DPRK can really build upon this… and everyone else should speak out about it. Because, this doesn’t make sense. This is like letting the criminals run the investigation into the crimes they are committing on a regular basis.
Pyongyang will get heat for this and righteously so. Since it doesn’t make sense that the DPRK is leading this… Peace.
