TEHRAN, Mar. 20 (Press Shia) – The North Korean Lawyers Committee in its white paper on Thursday called for convening the Forum of International Legal Experts to Clarify Legal Ground of the UN ‘Sanctions Resolutions’ against the DPRK.
The committee in its white paper stressed that the history of sanctions of the UN is a history of crimes tainted with high-handedness and arbitrariness and the ‘sanctions resolutions’ of the United Nations against the DPRK are criminal documents devoid of legality, morality and impartiality.
It recalled that on March 13, 2017, the permanent mission of the DPRK to UN proposed to the UN Secretariat that governmental and non-governmental experts from all states and international legal organizations attend the forum as they wish and the agenda of the forum be agreed upon reasonably in full reflection of the wishes and opinions of the attendants.
It said the forum of international legal experts is the place where the legality of ‘sanctions resolutions’ can be clarified fairly from the international law perspective.
The UN Secretariat must, in accordance with its main mission of maintaining international peace and security, fulfill its responsibility by positively responding to the proposal on organizing the forum of international legal experts to clarify the legal ground of the ‘sanctions resolutions’ against the DPRK, it concluded.
