Mattis: the United States will never recognize the DPRK as a nuclear power

48
America, like other countries, will never recognize North Korea as a nuclear power, TASS Statement by US Secretary of Defense James Mattis.




Journalists who accompanied the minister on a trip to Vietnam asked whether he could explain why Trump's predecessors eventually recognized, for example, Pakistan or India as nuclear powers, and the current administration "took an uncompromising position on this issue in relation to North Korea."

According to Mattis, the situation in the case of the DPRK is different in that Pyongyang "violates sanctions."

All the UN countries have taken a unified position: none of the members of the international community wants North Korea to have nuclear potential. Such is the position of the United States, the Republic of Korea, China and the Russian Federation. I can also add that on the Korean Peninsula is a unique situation. There is no peace treaty (between the DPRK and the Republic of Korea), only a temporary truce was concluded (after the Korean War 1950-1953),
he said.

This is not a place in which the international community can allow the emergence of nuclear weapons,
stressed the minister.

Recall that in December last year, the representative of the DPRK at the UN, Cha Song, told us at a meeting of the Security Council that the DPRK intends to become "the most powerful nuclear and military power in the world." At the same time, he noted that “nuclear weapons are intended only for self-defense and maintaining security in the region”.

      Just do not see the point in recognition or non-recognition ... The fact remains that the DPRK has nuclear weapons ... And delivery vehicles! So you can not recognize forever, but have to be considered!

          fart, they might tear at last, the DPRK is already a nuclear country, but the United States has tired of many in the role of world hegemon, especially since nobody appointed them to the hegemons, except for themselves, “exceptional” gopniks.

        It’s American, not to admit a fait accompli and to powder brains to the whole world with your own tales. What needs to happen for the minke whales to recognize the DPRK as a nuclear power, North Korean nuclear rain from warheads over the United States?

        Our allegedly beloved president is also not going to recognize the DPRK’s nuclear status. And now, the Far East is in radioactive dust? Sanctions will not be canceled until they are recognized. For a long time, North Koreans will have to eat an injury.

    Quote: America, like other countries, will never recognize North Korea as a nuclear power ...
    Well, you probably don’t have to go broke for other countries, well, it’s also not worth it to look like a fool in the eyes of precisely “other” countries. The presence of nuclear warheads and carriers capable of delivering them at a distance of 8-12 thousand kilometers is not a convincing justification for the fact that the DPRK has become a nuclear power.
    Probably the nickname of Mr. Mattis, Mad dog was incorrectly translated, the word "Mad" can be translated not only as "mad", but also as "fucking" (in the parliamentary translation of this term).

    Dude wants to live in a world where the US decides everything and for everyone. The DPRK eats nuclear weapons and this is a fact, and the fact is stubborn things. Trump does not recognize Raging Dog, the next administration admits, there simply will not be another way.

    Well, purely kindergarten. Close your eyes and nobody will see you.
    And it’s weak to even think about on which chassis the DPRK carries its gadgets and whether the PRC will specifically produce chassis modifications for the DPRK.

    We, or the Americans there, may not legally recognize North Korea as a nuclear power. Legally, in general, only 5 countries are generally members of the nuclear club and, accordingly, nuclear powers: Russia, the USA, France, England and China. All others are not legally recognized as nuclear. What is India, what is Pakistan, what is Israel, what is DPRK. But legal recognition is one thing, but in fact, these countries are nuclear. And by and large, legal recognition - this is so, IMHO a fiction. There Israel, almost half a century is actually a nuclear power and non-recognition of the legally unlikely to affect.

    "Do not recognize"? That is, they do not “recognize” the fact of ownership? They will say, like, “No, the DPRK does not have any nuclear weapons? So, yes? Like we-Idiot, we don’t see the obvious? What about India? Pakistan? Israel? From who -that it "does not recognize" the obvious things, the DPRK- "is not hot and not cold" -Do not want to "recognize" and want to look like fools ... -Your business.

    So that's great. And then the DPRK nuclear strike against the United States will not be considered a nuclear attack.
