DPRK Speaking from the Moral Low Ground

In the News from the Enemy category, Xinhua reports, DPRK: Japan has no qualification for permanent member of UNSC;
PYONGYANG, March 13 (Xinhuanet) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) stressed on Sunday that Japan has no qualification to be a permanent member of the UN Security Council in all respects, describing Japan's behavior to make desperate efforts for Security Council membership as "impudent and imprudent."

"This issue can not be solved by money or backing of big countries but by the recognition of the international community," said Rodong Sinmun, the leading daily newspaper of the DPRK, in a singed article.

"It has no pluck to take action responsible for world security and international order. If Japan, a servant following the United States, becomes a permanent member of the UNSC, it will only result in adding one vote to the US in harassing world security and international order," it added.
Of course the DPRK has great respect for the UN, international law including treaties, human rights.
"As Japan is a dangerous warlike state which is seeking overseas aggression going against the trend of peace, its attainment of the UNSC permanent membership will give the Japanese militarists the wing of revanche for aggression," the article said.
They really need to get a good dictionary or thesaurus and stop projecting.
Japan, along with Germany, Brazil and India, is stepping up its bid for permanent membership of an enlarged Security Council.
I openly admit my biases. It should go to Japan.
