Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

North Korea on Tuesday officially expressed its support for Russia’s illegal annexation of parts of Ukraine and criticized the United States for using the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to maintain a U.S.-led unipolar world. In a statement, Jo Chol Su, director-general of International Organizations at North Korea’s Foreign Ministry, claimed that the referenda held last week revealed the “will” of the Ukrainians and was “in keeping with the UN Charter.” He added, “The days are going never to return when the U.S. can use the UNSC as its shield and means of aggression for maintaining its supremacy.”
