One of the important issues which has been in the SC agenda for 22 years, is the Democratic People's Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) nuclear program. The Security Council has issued 12 resolutions toward DPRK till now. In this article, I examined the issue regarding the “connection between language use and the practice of power” as an assumption, I analyzed the discourse of UN Security Council resolutions toward DPRK. Findings revealed UNSC used vocabularies and grammar as means of posing distance from the audience. Posing distance addresses the power position of text producer, which is UNSC, in the maintenance of international peace and security. In another words, these resolutions can be considered as the basis for exercising the authority of that institution and also unequal power relations between UN Security Council and international society. In the article firstly I introduced the method of critical discourse analysis in the framework of Norman Fairclough’s approach and then UN Security Council Resolutions toward DPRK are examined based on three stages, description, interpretation and explanation.
