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.
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”.
