A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Friday issued a statement accusing the U.S of supporting South Korea over the sinking of the naval ship "Cheonan" and continuing its hostile policy against the DPRK.

According to the official news agency KCNA, the spokesman said the result of the investigation over the sinking of the "Cheonan" was a farce directed by South Korea under the authorization and incitement of the U.S. The DPRK had nothing to do with the sinking of the sinking of "Cheonan."

The spokesman said the U.S. mistakenly thinks that the DPRK would yield to the sanctions. The Obama government tried to internationalize the sanctions and asphyxiate the DPRK on politics and economy. However, the lies of the U.S can't deceive the world, he said.

Although denuclearization and stability on the Korean Peninsula is the invariable stand of the DPRK, it would never abide any infringement of its sovereignty, the spokesman said.

The 1,200-ton "Cheonan" with 104 crew members onboard sank on March 26 near the maritime border with the DPRK after an unexplained explosion. Only 58 sailors were rescued alive shortly after the sinking. South Korean investigators issued the results of an investigation on May 20 that said the "Cheonan" was sunk by a torpedo of the DPRK.

A spokesman for the DPRK National Defense Commission issued a statement on May 20 to reject the claim of the south and intended to send an inspection group to the south to verify material evidence. The U.S. accused the DPRK of attacking the warship on Friday.
