UNGA: Arms Proliferation on the Korean Peninsula

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Assembly, it is with the utmost regret we find ourselves forced to turn to this distinguished body. Yet, unlike some nations apparently, we believe in the capability of this body to be a force for lasting peace in the world. Therefore we call upon the general assembly to issue a full condemnation of the People's Republic of China for their proliferation of modern arms to the so-called Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

It is absurd to the highest degree to believe that China believes in peace on the Korean peninsula, when they are so drastically affecting the balance of power on it. The DPRK is a nation that has threatened on numerous occasions to flatten our capital and slaughter every civilian with it. The DPRK has long threatened to bathe us and our allies in a sea of nuclear flame. In 1996 they said "they [South Korea] will be killed by the hundredfold and thousandfold". In 2002 they said "we will mercilessly wipe them out". Earlier this very year they promised nuclear annihilation if they were forced to disarm. This is not a stable state by any means, and to give these people with such reckless disregard for the norms of international conduct contravenes all logic.

These are not empty threats either, as of our most recent intelligence assessments, approximately 70 percent of their army is located within 90 miles of the DMZ with over eight thousand artillery pieces protected and connected by a thorough and deep network of tunnels and bunkers. Nor is our capital the only metro area threatened by a devastating barrage from the DPRK, as their tactical and short-range ballistic missiles are capable of ranging on the entirety of the peninsula, and beyond.

Not only does this armament of a wild and unstable dictator fly in the face of logic, it also flies in the face of the very embargos established by this body. The nations of this organization swore to not arm this country, and yet here we are. Therefore we also call for a UNSC resolution enacting an embargo of all small arms, missiles, rockets, dual use technologies, and war materiel on the DPRK. Otherwise we hope that the UNGA is prepared to deal with the megadeaths that will come in the first fifteen minutes of their barrage.

In closing, I do wish to note that while tensions may be ever taught between our two countries, we do not object to food and medical aid, or the transfer of agricultural technologies to the North. It is always saddening for us to watch the DPRK pour money into pointless shows of force and standing armies, when their people starve and die of basic diseases long since eradicated elsewhere. These are our cousins, our family members, separated by the curse of war and political differences. It is our hope that, hopefully someday soon, we may be able to open our borders some to free trade between us, and cooperate towards a peaceful future for all of us as Koreans.

China fully understands the fears caused by nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula as anywhere else, and accepts the need for nuclear deescalation. Our position was, is, and remains that nuclear proliferation regionally and on the peninsula is not conductive to peace or harmony in East Asia. We would be happy to cooperate on a resolution suitably stating these factors.

However, we do not accept that we have breached any arms embargo of the UNSC, and are not aware of any recent statement by Pyongyang promising nuclear annihilation - though previous statements have indeed been unnecessarily inflammatory. While we welcome Seoul bringing their fears before the UNGA, we would have welcomed private discussions over any fears of PRC-DPRK trade deals concurrently or before now, in order to clarify our position.

It is to be welcomed however that the need to encourage food and medical aid, as well as the improvement of DPRK agriculture, is now recognised across the board. We assure Seoul that China's relationship with the RoK is desired to remain as close as before, and while we understand the fears over the sale nine months ago of certain aircraft to Pyongyang, we do not accept that this has drastically affected the balance of power, as the DPRK air force remains by some way older than the more modern RoK air force, and has not resulted in any expansion of military units.

Finally, we would urge a return to the format of Six-Party Talks on the issue, and for all parties to return to the diplomatic table.

The Russian Federation actually states no weapons of any kind are to be imported or exported from the DPRK. Russia however will no longer participate in the six party talks as they are leading us no where.The DPRK however being notable for it's volatile behavior is however a destabilizing agent. Perhaps the US was fine leaving this as a problem the Russian Federation is not. If Nothing is done to solve it we will have to think on other solutions to keep peace in the region.

The United States believes that the Six Party Talks is the best step forward in hammering a plan for the deescalation of the Korean Peninsula.

Should it be the case that there are indeed moves being made to arm the DRPK, then we may have to act in kind to help shore up our friends, the Republic of Korea. Other options may be brought on the table to deal with this matter directly.

One wonder how, precisely, the German government intends to enforce a total embargo against the DPRK. Surely they cannot mean they will use force to intervene against the nations of the world? If the representative speaks solely of German shipments, we would advise them to more carefully phrase their statements.

As for Russian withdrawal of support for Six Party Talks, we must express our deep concern as such a proposal! Such a disavowal of the diplomatic process, and in particular a set of talks that had seen real progress being made towards the end of 2005, is unprecedented in modern diplomatic history - and as a long standing and close ally of the Russian people, the Indian government urges they reconsider their position on the matter. A commitment to a peaceful resolution to tensions in North Asia is vital not only to regional stability, but global stability - and the likelihood of such an outcome will be greatly weakened without the encouragement and influence of the Russian government.

The Federal Republic of Germany indeed intended to specify only German shipments towards the DPRK.

Japan shares the deep concern of the Republic of Korea over the recent arming of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea with modern weaponry by the People's Republic of China. As a measure to promote peace in Asia, it seems deeply flawed to give a hostile, aggressive rogue state which has sworn itself an enemy of most of its neighbours - and made repeated threats against them of war - increased confidence and increased capability for aggression, particularly when the PRC has, of late, been roundly criticising others for responding to this with defensive measures. As the South Koreans rightly point out, this is a nation with openly declared nuclear ambitions, which has an existing arsenal of chemical weapons of mass destruction, and threatens its neighbours with them frequently.

The new Prime Minister, however, recognises the essential role that the six-party talks have played in increasing stability in the region, and is happy to continue them, as well as, similarly, recognising that the essential humanitarian crisis precipitated by the DRPK against its own population necessitates an international humanitarian response. We must be cautious, however, as an international community, not to allow our goodwill and aid to simply permit the DRPK to abrogate its responsibilities towards its own people by continuing reckless military spending at the cost of famine and deprivation. As a consequence, any aid measures should be matched with appropriate commitments from the DRPK to disarmament and international observation.

We are, nevertheless, fully open to measures to calm tensions in the Korean peninsula, and to address the humanitarian situation in North Korea with our own aid if necessary, though in consultation with the RoK and PRC, as a local affair and to avoid outside interference in these internal matters by Japan. Japan desires nothing but peaceful and harmonious relations with the DPRK, as well as all other nations - but naturally, this can only work both ways, not unilaterally.
