North Korea casts itself as victim of US vilification over nuclear capabilities

At UN, DPRK diplomat calls it hypocritical to criticize its weapons tests but not those of US, South Korea

North Korea told a U.N. committee on Thursday that it is subject to arbitrary vilification over its nuclear and weapons programs, questioning why U.S. and South Korean missile tests don’t face the same international scrutiny.

Speaking at a meeting of the U.N.’s Sixth Committee, DPRK delegate Kim In Chol slammed the U.S. for its “double-dealing attitude” on nuclear capabilities.
