Rodong Sinmun raps against Imperialist Powers sanctions
against other countries
Pyongyang, June 15 (KCNA) -- The imperialist powers are openly slapping sanctions against other countries in a bid to realize their ambition to dominate them. With no rhetoric can they justify their vicious policy of sanctions.
Rodong Sinmun Wednesday observes this in a by-lined article.
The injustice of these sanctions lies in that they are disregarding international law and the norms governing the relations among countries and diametrically run counter to the universally recognized principle of independence and equality in international relations.
International law bans any country from forming an international alliance against other countries and does not allow it to infringe upon the interests of other sovereign state for meeting its selfish purpose.
It is needless to say that the imperialists' vicious sanctions against other countries are illegal criminal acts devoid of any basis of international law.
It is also unreasonable for the imperialists to try to legalize the "PSI," "Regional Marine Security Initiative", etc.
All the countries and nations should be let take part in the settlement of international issues with equal qualifications and rights.
The principle of independence and equality requires all countries to participate in the settlement of international issues with equal qualifications and rights.
Any violation of that principle would lead to the infringement upon sovereignty of countries in international arena and the formation of relations of domination and subjugation and those of inequality among countries.
The world people are now aspiring after independence, not domination and subjugation and after friendship and cooperation, not confrontation and dispute.
Gone are the days when specified forces could be hell-bent on arbitrary actions, putting sanctions upon other countries.
Statements and resolutions exposing and denouncing the unreasonable sanctions of the imperialists are being adopted in different countries of the world and by international organizations.
The imperialists' wrong policy of sanctions is bound to fail as it is the leftover of the old era.
