A spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea Friday issued the following statement:

On Thursday the United Nations Security Council instigated by Britain, France and Germany held a closed-door meeting at which it terms the DPRK's measures for arms modernization the "violation of resolutions".

The DPRK has never recognized UNSC's "resolutions" against the DPRK illegally fabricated by the UN according to its taste, nor will it recognize them in the future, too.

It is an insult, disregard and grave provocation against the DPRK to cook up such "resolutions" that the relevant party does not recognize and to say this or that over a matter related with the sovereignty of a sovereign state.

It is the very self-evident truth that any projectile draws a ballistic curve, not a straight line owing to earth gravity.

The UNSC takes issue with the firing based on the ballistic technology, not the range of the projectile, which means that the DPRK should give up the right to self-defence.

Furthermore, the DPRK has not concluded with any country an agreement on limitation of the range of missile and other projectiles and has not been bound to international law related with it.

The DPRK's decision to suspend nuclear test and test-fire of ICBM is goodwill and consideration for dialogue partner. It is by no means part of acts to recognize and abide by the UNSC's absurd "resolutions" against the DPRK.

Considerate of the universal expectations of the international community for peace and stability of the Korean peninsula, the DPRK has already suspended nuclear test and the test-fire of ICBM with the maximum patience for more than twenty months.

But the UNSC is getting on the nerves of the DPRK by groundlessly slandering the DPRK's measures for conventional weaponry development while turning blind eyes to the war exercises in south Korea and shipment of cutting-edge attack weapons into it.

This makes our patience with the UN disappear and turn into anger.

What's more ridiculous is that Britain, France and Germany were so impudent as to take the lead in convening a meeting against the DPRK and issuing a "joint statement".

We will never allow anyone to try to flout the sovereignty of the DPRK and its right to self-defence, but will settle accounts with them.

Those countries that took the lead in convening the UNSC closed-door meeting should properly reflect on their reckless behavior of poking their nose into other's internal affairs.

Britain, France and Germany should realize before it is too late that their recent stupid words and deeds wouldn't restrain the tension on the Korean Peninsula but serve as a catalyst for the escalation.

They should no longer hold such meeting, which makes a laughing stock.
