North Korean ambassador to the UN Sin Son Ho has firmly rejected charges that his country was responsible for the sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan, in a press conference in New York on Tuesday (Wednesday, June 16 in Asia).
Ambassador Sin warned that Pyongyang would respond militarily to any Security Council condemnation over the sinking of the South Korea vessel, which Seoul blamed on North Korea.
Sin cast doubts on the credibility of international Joint Investigation Group, by South Korea branding its findings “a complete fabrication from A to Z”.
He declared that he wished to “further clarify” his country’s position on the sinking of the Cheonan.
He stressed that group’s findings were neither scientific nor objective, as claimed by both the South Korea and the United States.
