Seoul: North Korea accused U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Sunday of lacking impartiality as head of the global agency, taking issue with his denuclearisation-related remarks during a visit to Seoul last week.

In a press statement, Kim Son-gyong, North Korea vice foreign minister for international organisations, denounced the U.N. chief for his reported expression of “full support for the complete, verifiable and irretrievable denuclearisation (CVID)” of North Korea.

Guterres met with South Korea President Yoon Suk-yeol on Friday, Yonhap news agency reported.

According to an English-language report of the Korean Central News Agency, Kim said, “I cannot but express deep regret over the said remarks of the UN secretary-general that grossly lack impartiality and fairness and go against the obligations of his duty, specified in the UN Charter, as regards the issue of the Korean peninsula.”

“The so-called CVID, touted by the U.S. and its vassal forces, is just an infringement upon the sovereignty of the DPRK as it demands the unilateral disarmament, and Secretary-General Guterres perhaps knows well that the DPRK has totally rejected it without any toleration,” the vice foreign minister added. The DPRK is the acronym for the North’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

Kim said the North’s nuclear program is its “inevitable choice” to defend its own security and called on Guterres to “be careful in making such dangerous words and deeds as “pouring gasoline on flames” at a time of the “extremely acute situation” on the Korean Peninsula.
