Ban Ki Moon shall “pay a dear price” says spokesperson
A spokesperson for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said last Saturday on 24th of September that UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon shall “pay a dear price” for his remarks condemning North Korea’s 5th nuclear test.
The spokesperson said to a journalist of KCNA, North Korea’s official news agency, that “[Ban] is a confrontation maniac as he has abused the UN as a sinister political platform for slandering the DPRK, a full-fledged member of the UN, zealously pursuant to the hostile policy of the U.S. and its vassal forces”. In addition, South Korea’s JoongAng Ilbo reported that the spokesperson said, “Ban Ki Moon shows that he is a meddling puppet of the atrocious and anti-DPRK sanctions promoted by vassal forces of the US-Park Geun-hye faction through blasting our independent right to test nuclear weapons.”
The KCNA report also stated that “Ban whose tenure of office is expected to expire by the end of this year was reported to have expressed his intention to run for “presidential election” due in South Korea next year, revealing his political ambition”, that “We do not care whether he tries to seek the presidency of south Korea in quest of power after being dethroned as UN secretary general”, but that they will “keep tabs on all the high treasons he has committed… to tighten international sanctions and pressure to stifle the DPRK”.
The spokesperson threatened, “Ban should bear in mind if he acts in concert with the Park Geun Hye group and goes mischievous while getting involved in the sanctions against the DPRK, out of his despicable partisan calculation, he will be made to pay a very high price.”
Ban stated at a press conference on the 9th of September at the UN Headquarters that the Security Council must “take appropriate action” to respond to North Korea’s 5th nuclear test.
