Esteemed Your Excellency,
A meeting of representatives of 14 countries comprising professors, doctors, engineers, lawyers including human right activists met in an International Seminar on September 8, 2016 organized under the auspices of IIJ1 in Pyongyang unanimously resolved to send an appeal to Your Excellency to immediately lift the economic sanctions imposed by the UN against DPRK.
HAVING witnessed die popular policies and measures of the DPRK that is committed to raise the standard of living of its people in peaceful manner on the basis of its own Juche philosophy which means that every human is a social being who is a master of its own destiny and is desirous of living in peace independently and creatively, we came to know that the anti-DPRK propaganda of the US and the government in Seoul, that the DPRK's military preparedness is aimed to destroy international peace and disarmament, is false and misleading. The fact is that the DPRK's preparedness in terms of military is to thwart any aggression and to safeguard its territorial sovereignty and integrity.
This preparedness is in self defence which is the sovereign right of a nation. DPRK is committed to work internationally for securing peace and harmony.
The seminar URGES the United Nations to take immediate steps to lift sanctions from DPRK as these sanctions have adversely affected the foodstuff for children and other essential items of use for its citizens which violates the human rights of its citizens and same amount to violation of international law.
We think the economic sanction imposed by the United Nations against the DPRK should be reviewed on humanitarian grounds to help and aid human and material damage caused by the recent gale force and flood in the northern part of DPRK.
We APPEAL through United Nations to the conscience of all people of the world not to form opinion about DPRK on the basis of false propaganda and lies spread by the US and its allies.
With warm regards.
Prof. Dr. Harish Gupta
