How North Korea reacted to US’ decision to attack Syria

North Korea on Sunday condemned the move of the United States of America to bomb Syria. North Korea described US’ decision as “absolutely unacceptable aggression” against a sovereign state. North Korea added this justifies Pyongyang’s further military development.

“The US missile strike against Syria is a clear and unforgivable aggression against a sovereign state and we strongly condemn it,” EFE news cited a North Korean Foreign Ministry statement as saying.

The statement further added that North Korea, which regards Syria as an ally, was not actually surprising. According to the statement, this US military attack was a warning to them and another example that they have to defend themselves against imperialist aggressions.

“The reality is that our decision to strengthen our military power to respond to attacks of force is the right choice,” the statement went on to add.

The United States had on the nightof April 6 released 59 Tomahawk missiles at the Shayrat airbase in Syria. This was in retaliation to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Bashar al-Assad regime that killed a number of civilians.

An IANS report stated that the cruise missile attack took place when Donald Trump was dining with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Florida.

A White House source told The Washington Post on Saturday that the attack was not only a warning for Syria but also for China to put pressure on North Korea to end its provocation.
