Recently, North Korea said that the delegates it had sent to a UN’s conference in New York were “literally mugged” by the US authorities as the delegates tried to leave John F. Kennedy International Airport on Friday. In this session, we will learn about the incident that happened.
“This mugging act of the US serves as a graphic account telling the world how reckless and despicable the US hostile policy towards (North Korea) has become,”
“The US should reflect on its reckless act and be fully aware of the grave consequences to follow.”
Response From the US Department of Homeland Security
“According to the US State Department, the North Korean citizens were not accredited members of North Korea’s Mission to the UN and had no entitlement to diplomatic immunity. The package in question had no diplomatic protection from inspection,”
“DHS seized multiple media items and packages from the individuals, at which time the North Koreans attempted to physically retrieve the items but were prevented from doing so by DHS officers. The reported aggression was initiated by the North Koreans.”
