North Korea on Friday rapped Ukraine for severing diplomatic ties with Pyongyang over its determination to acknowledge Russia-backed separatist areas within the war-torn nation’s east, in accordance with state-run media.
A North Korean Overseas Ministry spokesman stated Ukraine “dedicated acts fairly opposite to impartiality and justice within the state-to-state relations” and “has no proper and qualification to take challenge” with Pyongyang over its “authentic train of sovereignty.”
North Korea is the third nation to acknowledge the self-proclaimed independence of the Donetsk and Luhansk areas in Ukraine, following Russia and Syria, which has shut relations with Moscow.
The spokesman stated Kyiv aligned itself with the USA’ “unreasonable and unlawful hostile coverage” towards North Korea, in accordance with the Korean Central Information Company.
Ukraine, which was invaded by Moscow in February, has been extremely important of Pyongyang’s determination to acknowledge the contested areas.
North Korea, which was based in 1948 with the backing of the Soviet Union, has been attempting to deepen ties with Russia and China, because the nation’s negotiations with the USA over denuclearization and sanctions aid have been in a stalemate for greater than two years.
