North Korea rejects UNSC resolution

Interpretation of right to self-defense, state responsibility shows lack of legal understanding

North Korea has rejected the UN Security Council's most recent resolution, emphasizing its right to self-defense and space development, in an article published by state media on Thursday.

The Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) published a statement under the name of a spokesperson from the Korean Jurists Committee, who made the argument by citing international laws and agreements.
