North Korea Denounces Pelosi’s Visit to Taiwan
North Korea’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson denounced the visit of Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, to Taiwan on Wednesday.
“The current situation clearly shows that the impudent interference of the U.S. in internal affairs of other countries and its intentional political and military provocations are, indeed, the root cause of harassed peace and security in the region,” the North’s state-controlled media KCNA quoted the spokesperson as saying.
While emphasizing Taiwan as “an inseparable part of China,” the spokesperson also backed up Beijing’s recent saber-rattling warnings to the U.S. over Pelosi’s visit by saying that “it is the due right of a sovereign state to take counter measures against the moves of the outside forces openly interfering in its internal affairs.”
“We vehemently denounce any external force’s interference in the issue of Taiwan, and fully support the Chinese government’s just stand to resolutely defend the sovereignty of the country and territorial integrity,” the spokesperson said.
