David Miliband Condemns North Korea With Song

by | 6th, April 2009

STATEMENT FROM THE FOREIGN SECRETARY

I strongly condemn North Korea’s action in conducting a satellite launch earlier today. This action contributes directly to their ballistic missile programme, and therefore puts North Korea in breach of UNSCR 1718. While Pyongyang continues to pursue a hostile policy towards the rest of the world, it cannot hope to take its rightful place within the international community. I strongly urge North Korea to cease immediately all further missile-related activity and commit to engaging constructively with international partners, in particular through the Six Party Talks process.

Or what? And what’s the satelite doing?

China Daily explains:

“It is sending to the earth the melodies of the immortal revolutionary paeans ‘Song of General Kim Il-sung‘ and ‘Song of General Kim Jong-il’ and measured information at 470 MHz. By the use of the satellite the relay communications is now underway by UHF frequency band”.
