PYONGYANG, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Tuesday called for vigilance against the United States' appeal for reform of the United Nations (UN), depicting it as "an arrogant act of a gangster nation."
The United States has recently called for reform of the U.N., which is said to have failed to display its full potential due to bureaucracy and improper working style.
The official daily Rodong Sinmun said in a commentary that the United States, as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, is committing high-handed arbitrary practices to realize its ambition for world domination.
"In disregard of the demand and interests of the U.N. member nations, the U.S. is going to abuse the issue of the U.N. reform for establishing its domination. It is, indeed, a cancer-like entity harassing world peace and security," said the newspaper.
The daily said if the United States is allowed in its moves to reshape the U.N. in its interests, "justice and truth will be undermined in the international relations and the world will inevitably turn into one in which the jungle law prevails."
