PYONGYANG, July 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Pyongyang on Monday denied western media reports alleging that it is planning to supply hundreds of thousands of US dollars’ worth of missiles and communication equipment to Hamas.

The North Korean Foreign Ministry dismissed these reports as “a pure concoction”.

A ministry spokesperson told the country’s KCNA news agency that such false reports “prove the intention of the United States and its allies to artificially link Pyongyang to events in the Middle East in order to mar the DPRK’s image in the international scene and isolate” the country.

The Foreign Ministry said such reports indicate to “the US wish to justify Israel’s crimes in Gaza, which have resulted in numerous casualties”.

Washington is trying to present proof of North Korea’s ties with Palestinian organisations in order to “distract international attention (from Israel) and focus the criticism on Pyongyang”, the ministry said.

The ministry added that “it is the US that is undermining global peace and stability by acting as the main terrorist state” and by “supplying heavy weapons to South Korea and trying to draw its leadership into war with the DPRK”.
