Nowadays the US. and its vassal countries are recklessly fabricating “resolutions of sanctions” against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea at the UN Security Council, “condemning” the country’s self-defence measures to strengthen its defence capacity as a “threat” to global peace and security. Historically the US has been desperate to bring the DPRK, a sovereign state, into submission in an attempt to realize its ambition to dominate the world for decades by mobilizing its vassal countries at the UNSC.

In the 1950s the UN Security Council took its first scandalous step of joining the US’s hostile moves against the DPRK by fabricating “Resolution 82,” “Resolution 83” and “Resolution 84” which legalized participation of the “UN forces” in the Korean war provoked by the US. In May 1993 the UNSC, instigated by the US, fabricated “Resolution 825” designed to defer the DPRK’s decision on its withdrawal from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and force the country to return to cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency. With this as the starting point, the UNSC’s schemes to adopt “resolutions of sanctions” against the DPRK have now reached an extreme. In 2016 the US abused the UNSC to fabricate the “resolutions of sanctions” 2270 and 2321, condemning the DPRK’s H-bomb test and explosion test of nuclear warhead to safeguard its sovereignty as “threat” to international peace and security. At the same time, the US, insisting on extreme “sanctions” against the DPRK, instigated the UN to fabricate another illegal “resolution of sanctions” against the DPRK so as to launch “blockade-type sanctions” against the DPRK. Not content with this, the US clung to the puerile way of adding sports facilities for amusement and even pocket watches and ceramic bowls to the list of goods of sanction.

A lot of countries conduct nuclear tests and launch satellites and ballistic missiles. Then why does the UNSC fabricate “resolutions of sanctions” against the DPRK, describing the country’s nuclear test and launch of satellites and ballistic missiles as a threat to international peace and security? This is because of the US’s inveterate feelings of antipathy and hostility to the DPRK.

The US is desperately clinging to sanctions because the DPRK does not give up the banner of socialism or surrender to its highhandedness and arbitrariness. What is necessary to the US buoyed up by its ambition to dominate the world is a Korea as obedient as a lamb.

The US seeks to realize its dream of dominating the world by using the Korean peninsula as a stepping-stone for maintaining a superior position in the Asia-Pacific region and putting powers in the region under its control. This necessitates Americanizing the Korean peninsula completely. The US tries its best to “Americanize” the Korean peninsula. The US has spent decades trying to force the DPRK to give in by mobilizing its vassal countries.

The US desperately attempted to make the DPRK surrender by means of nuclear threat and sanctions. But the result was just opposite.

The DPRK has emerged as a nuclear power in the East despite the US and its vassal states’ unprecedented sanctions and nuclear threat that have lasted for over half a century, and achieved amazing successes in the construction of the economy and the improvement of the people’s living standards. This year Pyongyang erected Ryomyong Street as a model and standard of modern architectural street by dint of the might of single-hearted unity and self-reliance and selfdevelopment. The street twice as large as Mirae Scientists Street in scale and amount of work was built in no more than one year along with the successful reconstruction of the flooded northern area of North Hamgyong Province. This meant sledge hammer blows at the US and its vassal states that were trying to make Korea as obedient as a lamb. As the DPRK did not yield but always fought against sanctions by the US, the successive US Administrations gave in, experiencing a hot agony of international shame.

Now Trump who succeeded Obama as US President last January is following in his predecessor’s steps. Ignoring the reality of the DPRK, Trump, together with his stooges, is conducting nuclear war exercises in and around the Korean peninsula in an attempt to stifle the DPRK driving the situation to the brink of war. Today the DPRK puts unrelenting pressure upon the US while rapidly advancing along the road of socialism, although the US and its vassal states recklessly take varieties of sanctions against it.
