Pyeongyang laughs at criticism from U.S.

Apr 05,2003
North Korea’s Central News Agency said yesterday in an editorial that the U.S. sanction against Changgwang Sinyong Corp. for a missile sale to Pakistan’s Khan Research Laboratories was “a laughable ploy.” Production, deployment and exports of missiles were the country’s “sovereign rights,” the agency said.
U.S. State Department said Tuesday that sanctions had been imposed on the two entities on March 24 for an unspecified trade. Reports last year said Pakistan was bartering nuclear technology with North Korea in return for missile technology.
Also “laughable,” North Korea’s Foreign Ministry said, was a recent U.S. report that detailed human-rights abuses. On both counts, the North mentioned the U.S. war on Iraq, which it said gave the United States no right to discuss the affairs of other nations.
