北朝鮮の核開発は米国の敵対政策を抑止することが狙い 北朝鮮のロシア大使

Pyongyang’s nuclear program aims to ‘deter hostile US policy’ – N. Korea ambassador to Russia
No sanctions will make North Korea change its policies, says the country’s ambassador to Moscow. The diplomat added that North Korea’s nuclear program will help his country better deter the “hostile policy of the US”.

“We have lived under US sanctions for decades. Under the harshest of sanctions. But we have acquired everything we wanted to. If the US hopes that our position would be shaken and changed, that is an illusion,” Kim Yong-jae told the Russian media.

The diplomat added that North Korea’s nuclear and rocket programs will help his country better deter the “hostile policy of the US” and protect the Korean Peninsula from a nuclear war.

“The sanctions resolution of the UN Security Council has been forced by the US, which uses the council as a tool, and is illegal. We fully reject and strongly condemn this resolution,” Ambassador Kim said.

“Instead of acknowledging the reality and making the right choice, the US is using our most justified measures of self-defense to try and strangle our country,” he said.

Earlier, the UN Security Council imposed the harshest-ever economic sanctions against North Korea, putting a cap on the amount of fuel it can buy and further restricting import of crude oil.

It also banned textile trade with the country, targeting one of its major export articles.

The measures were taken in response to Pyongyang’s latest nuclear test. North Korea detonated a device, which it said was a thermonuclear bomb small enough to fit on a long-range ballistic missile.

国連安保理事会 ロヒンギャ問題で緊急会合を予定

UN Security Council Set to Hold Emergency Meeting on Rohingya Crisis
TEHRAN (FNA)- The UN Security Council is set to hold a meeting to discuss the deteriorating situation of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, a day after the world body’s rights chief voiced the alarm about the ongoing crimes against the minority group which he described as an example of “ethnic cleansing.”

The 15-nation member announced it would hold an emergency meeting at the request of Sweden and Britain on Wednesday, amid an international outcry against the Myanmar government’s bloody crackdown on the minority Muslim community, World News reported.

“It’s a sign of the significant worry that Security Council members have about the situation that is continuing to deteriorate for the many Rohingyas who are seeking to flee Rakhine State,” British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft told reporters.

The announcement came hours after UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid bin Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein denounced Myanmar’s brutal operation in Rakhine, warning it amounted to “ethnic cleansing.”

The country’s disgraced leader Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, has defended the military’s operation as part of the “legitimate duty to restore stability” in the western state after a number of armed attacks on police and army posts there on August 25.

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims, who are denied citizenship by the state and have suffered years of persecution in Buddhist-majority Myanmar, have been forced to flee the country in the past fortnight following a brutal crackdown the government describes as a “cleansing operation."

A petition has already collected hundreds of thousands of signatures calling for Suu Kyi's Nobel title to be revoked. Fellow Nobel laureates have also criticized the Myanmarese leader's stance on the ongoing violence, urging her to take action to defend the Rohingya's rights.

Critics have blamed her for complicity in the atrocities against the Rohingya, who are looked down on by the majority Buddhists in the country as illegal migrants from Bangladesh.

The Council met behind closed doors in late August to discuss the violence, but there was no formal statement.

The UN special rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar has said the latest wave of violence may have left more than 1,000 dead, most of them Rohingya Muslims.

According to the latest UN figures, over 370,000 Rohingya Muslims have already fled Myanmar. This has sparked a humanitarian crisis in neighboring Bangladesh, where refugee camps are already overcrowded and food and other aid are in short supply.

Most refugees have walked for days in harrowing journeys across rivers and through jungle, arriving sick, exhausted and in desperate need of shelter, food and water.

Dhaka, which initially tried to block the Rohingya from entering, said Monday that it would start registering all new arrivals and place them in a new refugee camp until their status is determined.

Amnesty International and Bangladeshi officials say the Myanmar military has planted landmines to harm the fleeing Rohingya refugees, many of whom arrive in Bangladesh with serious injuries.

a country fighting “invasion by the most powerful country in the world

theduran.com 2016/9/3

MUST SEE VIDEO: US Peace Council returns from Syria, a country fighting “invasion by the most powerful country in the world”

The truth about Syria and what is happening in Syria is all here, in the video below, outlined and documented during this press briefing by the US Peace Council (USPC).

We cannot be sure how long this video will be allowed to stay on Youtube, but we urge everyone to take 45:00 minutes of your time to see this video, share this video, and finally spread the word about the “vicious” war being waged on Syria.

Please share this post, and share this video, and share these excerpts, which may provide some life saving truth to an unjust, criminal war…and a western media narrative that continues to push lies and confusion to what is a clear and blatant international crime.

The Duran reported earlier today, as one of the few media organizations to expose this story…

A delegation from the US Peace Council (USPC) has recently returned to the US from a fact finding mission to Syria.

The members spent 6 days meeting with Syrian Government Officials including, President Assad, Union Leaders, Government Opposition Members as well as Civil & Business Leaders, NGO’s, Charities and Universities.

The delegation stated that each member paid their own way and that the Syrian Government allowed them to meet whomever they wanted.

They issued their report and held a press conference Press conference at the UN on 9th August 2016.

Madelyn Hoffman, Executive Director of New Jersey Peace Action, Member of the Syria Delegation at the 17:15:

“This is not a civil war in Syria. That’s probably the first thing we heard, and we heard it over and over again.

It is not President Assad against his own people. It is President Assad and the Syrian people, all together, in unity, against outside forces, outside mercenary forces, terror organisations, the names change everyday or every other day, to try to protect their identity, and maybe keep the connection between the country that funded it and that group, kind of a little bit more nebulous, but there are groups, mercenary forces, supported by Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, United States, and underneath it, Israel, the state of Israel.

And these outside mercenary forces are the ones that are terrorising the Syrian people, and are attempting to divide the Syrian people.”

TEHRAN (FNA)- The US-led coalition fighter jets attacked Raqqa and an ISIL prison in Deir Ezzur, killing tens of civilians and wounding several others.

The US warplanes targeted several regions in Raqqa city in the past 24 hours, killing at least 11 civilians and wounding a number of others.

Meantime, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the US fighter jets have pounded one of the ISIL-controlled prisons in the town of Albukamal near the former political security building of Deir Ezzur city on Saturday afternoon, killing at least 23 people, including 18 civilians who had been under arrest in the jail, and wounding several others.

It added that at least 10 inmates jailed in the prison were Iraqi nationals.

Who Is ‘Begging for War’?
TEHRAN (FNA)- US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley claims North Korea’s tests of increasingly sophisticated nuclear weapons and missiles amounts to “begging for war.”

In response, North Korea has said if nuclear weapons are a threat to humanity then how come the United States and other nuclear weapons states have built so many, brandishing weapon after weapon after weapon for the past 70 years?

Indeed, it doesn’t take a strategic mind to realise who is begging for war and who is insisting on peace. The War Party in Washington has been showing it over and over again in places like Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan. It is beyond pitiful, but that is what the Trump White House is. They will not change, even when it comes to committing themselves to international peace talks, much less international deals. You wouldn’t be hard pressed to think of one:

1- Recent US behaviour in the Middle East tends to reinforce questions over whether the United States is really a factor for stability. One recent example: the Trump administration has announced a ‘surge’ of troops in Afghanistan and Syria, only simultaneously to announce its intention to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

2- The Trump administration has announced the United States’ return to Asia, and some old allies in the region welcomed renewed attention from Washington. But many nations suspect the United States’ return really means engaging in a form of containment of China. Some even say that since the Taiwan Strait has become calmer, the US is turning to the South China Sea as a new pressure point to keep China in check.

3- The same is true about the Korean Peninsula. Here the nuclear detonations map must now be extended to include the H-Bomb detonation in the DPRK. It is hard to believe the Trump administration could not clearly see that the mock invasions of the DPRK called Team Spirit didn’t single-handedly agitate the tensions on the Korean Peninsula, until you consider that the Military Junta in Washington DC is also going to sell billions of dollars more to South Korea in weapons now that things are getting hot.

4- The Trump administration has just blamed Pakistan for its failure in the longest war on Afghanistan. Expect President Trump soon to be waging a new wave of disturbing assassination campaign in Pakistan that eclipses all that came before it in scale and brutality.

5- The Trump administration has overseen a projected fivefold increase in drone strikes in Yemen while also expanding ground operations to support the Saudi-led war against the poorest country in the Arab world. British bases help US drones find their targets, while British intelligence officers draw up kill lists of targets for drones to strike. Thousands of civilians have been killed this year and many more innocent people stand to lose their lives if this criminal campaign continues unchecked by the United Nations.

6- The US is hardly alone in waging its vicious and unaccountable war on Syria. Saudi Arabia and several other Persian Gulf Arab states are a compliant co-pilot in the regime-change program. The program is being undertaken with the full cooperation of ISIL and Al-Qaeda terror proxy forces.

7- Ambassador Haley claims Iran has violated the spirit of the 2015 nuclear accord and that President Trump is likely not to certify Iran’s compliance with it next time. There is no legitimate reason for such a step, but if Trump – who must certify compliance every three months – takes it, he would almost certainly set in motion another nuclear crisis side by side with the one with North Korea. Two basic facts are before us: first, that the nuclear accord is very much in the interest of all parties, the US in particular; and second, that the IAEA confirms Iran is not in violation of the agreement. In fact, it is the US which has on several occasions violated the deal by imposing new sanctions on Iran.

All this and more should have made it clear by now who is begging for war and who is insisting on peace: The Trump administration is simply looking for a pretext to launch a new war somewhere and scrap the Iran nuclear accord come what may. And there may well be enough votes in the Senate to bring those about if Trump chooses to make a clean break.

In the prevailing circumstances, it’s a waste of time to argue that rather than keep begging for an imminent war with a sovereign nation – a path already shown to be totally unproductive with North Korea – the US ought to be thinking about how to improve relations with the international civil society.
