The National Defence Commission (NDC) of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Friday called on the United Nations Security Council to carefully handle the investigation results of the Cheonan case referred to it by South Korea, the official KCNA news agency said.

The DPRK would closely watch once again how the U.N. Security Council reacted to the "conspiratorial farce" and "charade" of South Korea, who on June 4 referred its dispute with the DPRK to the Security Council, a commission spokesperson was quoted as saying by the KCNA.

The DPRK would take merciless counter-actions to protect its dignity and security and supreme interests, and the U.N. should ensure justice in handling the case, said the spokesperson who asked the U.N. not to tolerate an unjust anti-DPRK campaign.

He said there was no reason for Seoul to refuse an NDC inspection team "if the results of the investigation into the case are objective and scientific enough to be referred to the U.N. forum".
