G-8 `evil` for criticism over ship sinking: N Korea

North Korea rejected Group of Eight criticism over its alleged deadly sinking of a South Korean warship.

Seoul: North Korea on Tuesday rejected Group
of Eight criticism over its alleged deadly sinking of a South
Korean warship, a day after the isolated communist nation
threatened to bolster its nuclear capability.

The North`s Foreign Ministry accused the G-8 leaders of a
"sinister political purpose", saying in a report carried by
the country`s official Korean Central News Agency that the G-8
has been reduced to an "evil group".

An international investigation led by South Korea
concluded in May that North Korea torpedoed the 1,200-ton
Cheonan near the two Koreas` disputed western sea border in
March. Forty-six South Korean sailors died.

Top world leaders at a G-8 meeting near Toronto over the
weekend condemned the ship`s sinking, citing the probe that
found North Korea responsible. The leaders also criticised the
North`s nuclear program.

The G-8 consists of Britain, Canada, France, Germany,
Italy, Japan, Russia and the United States.

Seoul has asked the UN Security Council to punish
Pyongyang over the sinking. Today, South Korea`s legislature
passed a resolution condemning North Korea over the sinking.

The National Assembly also demanded that the North
apologise and punish those who responsible.
