PYONGYANG, December 30. /TASS/. Pyongyang finds “Crimea’s reunification with Russia fully justified,” director of the press and information department of North Korean Foreign Ministry Jeong Dong-hak said in an interview with TASS on Tuesday.
He wished Russians to protect worthily their interests over current events in Ukraine amid a tough anti-Russian campaign “launched by the United States and Western countries.”
Pyongyang is convinced that “the Russian people under the leadership of President Vladimir Putin will confront successfully foreign pressure and sanctions.” “We find Russia’s position just, as the country protects decisively its national interests,” the diplomat said.
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is interested in a strong Russia, Jong Tong-hak told TASS.
He welcomed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement to the effect the government should focus on social liabilities and on maintaining the exchange rate of the ruble, and also on measures to bolster the unity of the Russian nation.
“Russia is moving steadily along its own path of progress towards becoming a major power,” Jong said, adding that traditional relations of friendship and cooperation with Russia “remain an ever-lasting stance of the DPRK government.”
