The US-government funded despicable imperialist pigdog news agency Voice of America today reports that North Korea has filed a formal complaint to the United Nations over "The Interview," a James Franco/Seth Rogen comedy about an attempt to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
The letter is identified as describing "Measures to eliminate international terrorism."
The North’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Ja Song Nam, sent a letter voicing Pyongyang's objections to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon late last month.
Ambassador Ja wrote the production and distribution of the movie The Interview should be regarded as “the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism, as well as an act of war.”
He also urged the United States to “take immediate appropriate actions” to ban the production and distribution of the action comedy or be fully responsible for encouraging and sponsoring terrorism.
Here's the document filed with the UN by North Korea's representative:
Annex to the letter dated 27 June 2014 from the Permanent Representative of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General
DPRK Foreign Ministry spokesman blasts U.S. moves to hurt dignity of supreme leadership of DPRK
Pyongyang, 25 June (KCNA) — The spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of DPRK released the following statement:
The enemies have gone beyond the tolerance limit in their despicable moves to dare hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of DPRK.
A preview of a film on insulting and assassinating the supreme leadership of DPRK is floating in broad daylight in the U.S., a kingpin of international terrorism and its cesspool, shocking the world community.
The U.S. has gone reckless in such provocative hysteria as to bribe a rogue film-maker into daring to hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of DPRK. This act of not fearing any punishment from Heaven is touching off the towering hatred and wrath of the service personnel and people of DPRK.
The above-said practice is, however, a revelation of its fear, as it is taken aback by the bright and rosy future of DPRK under the leadership of the peerless great man and a last-ditch effort of those who are seized by a daydream.
Absolutely intolerable is the distribution of such a film in the U.S., as it is the most undisguised terrorism and an act of war to deprive the service personnel and people of DPRK of their mental mainstay and bring down its social system.
The dignified and worthwhile life that the Korean people enjoy at present and the great changes taking place in the country, as well as everything valuable that will belong to the rosy future when the dreams and ideals of the people will come true, would be unthinkable apart from the supreme leadership of DPRK.
That is why they regard the supreme leadership as dearer than their own lives. It is their firm determination to mercilessly destroy anyone who dares hurt or attack the supreme leadership of the country even a bit.
Those who defamed our supreme leadership and committed hostile acts against DPRK can never escape the stern punishment to be meted out according to law, wherever they might be in the world.
If the U.S. administration connives at and patronizes the screening of the film, it will invite a strong and merciless countermeasure.
Below, the trailer for 'The Interview,' due in US theaters this October.
