PYONGYANG, July 10 (Xinhua) -- The Foreign Ministry responded to a presidential statement of the UN Security Council over the sinking of the the South Korean corvette Cheonan, describing it as a miscalculation by U.S. and Seoul in framing Pyongyang.

"This clearly proves what a foolish calculation the U.S. and South Korea made when they were recklessly behaving in so great haste to do harm to the DPRK for no reason," a Foreign Ministry spokesman said, quoted by the KCNA.

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has rejected the results issued by multinational investigators over the Cheonan sinking. The investigation claimed the "Cheonan" was sunken by a torpedo of the DPRK.

"It can be predicted" that because the truth of the incident had not been find out, the DPRK spokesman said, adding that the presidential statement had neither clear judgement nor conclusion on the case.

The presidential statement, which was adopted by consensus at the UN Security Council on Friday, mentioned the findings of the investigation and took note of the response from the DPRK, which has stated that it had nothing to do with the incident.

The spokesman said the "Cheonan" case originally should be resolved between the DPRK and South Korea.

The DPRK would constantly make its effort to reach peace agreement and denuclearization on the peninsula through the six-party talks based on equal footing, he said.
