DPRK FM Spokesman Denounces U.S. Reckless Moves
Pyongyang, August 3 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on August 3 as regards the fact that the U.S. is escalating its military threat to the DPRK by deploying strategic nuclear assets in the Korean peninsula:
Recently, the U.S. is continuously deploying a huge amount of its latest strategic assets in the Korean peninsula in a bid to resort to military adventure, calling for military response to the DPRK's successful second test-launch of ICBM Hwasong-14.
The U.S. carried out a joint missile launching drill together with south Korea targeting the DPRK and dispatched two of its B-1B strategic bombers into the air above the Korean peninsula to conduct aerial bombardment drill for ten hours. It also waged a drill simulating the interception of the DPRK's ballistic missile while finalizing in haste the decision on the deployment of additional THAAD launchers in south Korea.
No sooner had the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Pacific Command chief admiral of the U.S. held a consultation with their south Korean counterparts about the so-called military response than the U.S. openly stated that it will concentrate its latest strategic assets on the vicinity of the Korean peninsula in an explicit manifestation of its intention to carry out an armed attack on the DPRK.
The second test-launch of ICBM Hwasong-14 by the DPRK was meant to send a stern warning to the U.S. going reckless and making senseless remarks about threatening the DPRK with military pressure and extreme sanctions.
Unfortunately, the U.S. still thinks that its military bluff would work, and it seems like the U.S. has not yet realized that its opponent is a mighty nuclear power which is capable of smashing the U.S., an aggressor state, into smithereens.
Any form of military threat or blackmail by the U.S. can never scare the DPRK and, on the contrary, it will only redouble the resolve of the Korean army and people to annihilate the enemy.
If the U.S. is stupid enough to shove its stinky face on this land again and keep brandishing its nuclear club despite our repeated warnings, the DPRK will teach the U.S. some manners with the strategic nuclear force that it had so far shown to the world. -0-
FM Spokesman on U.S. Return of DPRK's Diplomatic Package
Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- A spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) gave the following answer to the question raised by the KCNA on July 18 as regards the fact that the U.S. made an apology and returned the diplomatic package to the DPRK which it had seized from a DPRK delegation in New York:
As reported, on June 16, the delegation of the DPRK which was en route home after attending the Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was literally mugged at the John F. Kennedy International Airport by the U.S. authorities that forcibly took away a diplomatic package from the delegation in an illegal and heinous act of provocation.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK termed this mugging by the U.S. an intolerable act of infringement upon the sovereignty of the DPRK and a malicious provocation, and condemned it in the strongest terms while strongly demanding an explanation and an official apology from the U.S. government.
At the meeting of the UN Committee on Relations with Host Country, convened at the request of the permanent mission of the DPRK to the UN, the Cyprian representative chairing the committee and other representatives from many countries attending the session including China, Russia, Cuba and Syria acknowledged the mugging of the diplomatic package as a grave infringement upon the sovereignty of a UN member state which can never be tolerated.
The U.S. Department of State made an official apology to the DPRK on behalf of the U.S. government acknowledging that its security officials concerned made a mistake and expressed its hope that the DPRK would understand that the mistake was due to the security officials being oversensitive amid the deteriorating security situation in the U.S.
The U.S. eventually returned the diplomatic package and all its contents to the DPRK.
The U.S. should learn a due lesson from the incident and never again commit such an act of infringing the sovereignty of other countries, in flagrant violation of the universally recognized international norms and regulations. -0-
U.S. Warned against Military Gambling against DPRK
Pyongyang, July 7 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee in a statement Friday said the U.S. is further resorting to military gambling, losing control of itself, taken aback by the invincible state might and tremendous capabilities of the DPRK.
The U.S. Defense Department is loudly trumpeting about military attack option which it claimed worked out at the instructions of Trump on drafting various countermeasure programs to cope with the "north's provocation".
Dumbfounded by the DPRK's successful ICBM test-fire, the U.S. is holding combined ballistic missile demonstration together with the south Korean warmongers, rendering the situation tenser.
This proves that the Trump administration's claim that it would "not invade but ensure system" is a whopping lie and it is just a trick to cover up its sinister intention to put its war ambition into practice through a surprise attack, the statement says.
Such provocative and dangerous military act shows that the Trump administration's hostile policy toward the DPRK has reached the extremely reckless phase, it notes, and goes on:
The U.S. should clearly understand that its military attack option is an extremely foolish act of fastening its neck with noose.
It should know that the DPRK has its own-style powerful military option, the one for reducing the U.S. mainland to ashes, to cope with the U.S. military attack option for containing the DPRK by force.
The south Korean authorities can never go scot-free, either, once a war breaks out as they are keen on concealing the U.S. preemptive attack attempt with such words as "dialogue" and "leading role".
The reckless military attack on the DPRK will be the worst option of accelerating the end of the U.S. and its stooges. -0-
¡®American-first Principle¡¯-Nazism in 21st Century Rejected
Pyongyang, June 27 (KCNA) -- The Korean Central News Agency released an article "We Reject 'American-first Principle'- Nazism in the 21st Century" on Tuesday to shed light on the criminal nature of "American-first principle" touted by the Trump group of the U.S.
The big chaos the world has been forced to undergo at the hand of ruthlessly high-handed and arbitrary practices of the present U.S. administration is a direct product of the "American-first principle" trumpeted about by the Trump administration, the article says, and goes on:
The "American-first principle" is, in essence, the continuation and the expanded version of the hegemonic pursuance sought by the successive U.S. administrations.
This reactionary ideological trend stirs up extreme aggression and chauvinism by which they give the green-light to the violation of independence, the right to existence and the right to development of other countries and nations in order to serve the U.S. interests.
The idea is the American version of Nazism far surpassing the fascism in the last century in its ferocious, brutal and chauvinistic nature.
The "American-first principle" arouses denunciation by the public at home and abroad as it advocates the world domination by recourse to military means just as was the case with Hitler's concept of world occupation.
Just following Hitler's dictatorial politics, Trump's "two-nation strategy" justifies suppression after dividing nationals into two categories i.e. friends and foes. The strategy creates the atmosphere of horror among political, public, media, information and all other circles in the U.S., putting Trump, advocator of the idea, on the chopping board of impeachment himself.
Anti-immigration politics, little short of fascism's racist politics, has touched off aversion from big businesses which are gaining big benefits by relying on immigrated men of talents, and has sparked off derision by the world people as it denied the history of the U.S. itself, a multi-national and multi-racial country.
The world has never seen peace since the emergence of the "American-first principle".
After fixing it as the priority item of its policy for diplomacy and security to settle the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula, and setting the "maximum pressure and engagement" as its DPRK policy, the Trump administration has pressed for the unprecedented nuclear threat and blackmail and economic sanctions on the DPRK.
Its wild act of blocking even medical appliances and medications, to say nothing of even a drop of fuel oil, from entering the country, is an unethical and inhumane act, far exceeding the degree of Hitler's blockade of Leningrad.
The moves to contain potential rivals China and Russia and hold the region and the rest of the world under its control have reached the extremes under Trump rule.
The Trump group has caused the evil cycle of destruction, slaughter and instability even in the Mid-east.
The U.S. moves to stamp out anti-U.S. countries have complicated the situation in Latin-America, too.
The Trump way of thinking that the whole world may be sacrificed just for the better living of the U.S., has put even its allies and stooges in a pretty fix.
The U.S. wantonly violated the Paris agreement on preservation of earth environment as an extension of its moves of defying even international law and agreements.
It is quite natural that the international community brands the U.S. act of conniving at the indefinite emission of carbon dioxide for its own interests as "an act of putting into the shade Hitler's poisonous gas atrocity" and "a crime to annihilate humankind by turning green planet into a poisonous gas room as a whole".
All facts prove that the "American-first principle" which brings horror and instability to the world is just intervention and dangerous war-first principle which defy the principles of non-interference and peaceful co-existence.
The "American-first principle" whose purpose is to turn the human society of modern civilization into the wild world ruled by law of jungle represents the height of arrogance and arbitrariness.
Herein lies the crafty and ferocious nature of the "American-first principle" that stands out from the successive hegemonism.
The Yankee-way logic of hegemonism which claims everything has to exist to serve the U.S. is an anachronistic wild act and sophism that can no longer be effective in the era of independence where the sound way of thinking of humankind prevails.
The frantic ideology and forces harassing world peace and security and threatening the existence of human being have to be expelled from this planet. This is our demand and, at the same time, the urgent call of humankind.
All countries and nations have to fight against U.S. hegemonism.
U.S. hegemonism will face total bankruptcy in the face of justice and united strength. -0-
S. Korean Regime Should Retract THAAD Project: Spokesman of Committee for Opposing Nuclear War Drills
Pyongyang, June 10 (KCNA) -- A spokesman of the Pan-Korean Emergency Measure Committee for Opposing Nuclear War Drills against the DPRK released a statement on Saturday over the fact that the south Korean military was disclosed to have hushed up the additional introduction of four launchers of THAAD, except for the already deployed two launchers.
The statement said: This was aimed to pacify the angry south Korean public remaining strongly averse to the deployment of THAAD, evade rebukes of neighboring countries and curry favor with the U.S. administration to prolong their remaining days. It is another heavy crime and unpardonable pro-U.S. act of treachery.
The conservative coteries including the "Liberal Korea Party" are proactively shielding the treacherous act of the military authorities. This evidently shows that they are all traitors to the nation and pro-U.S. elements.
What provokes bitterer anger is the fact that the U.S. is pressurizing the south Korean regime to carry on the introduction of THAAD.
Lurking behind it is the U.S. brigandish nature and black-hearted intent to hasten the realization of its strategy for dominating the Asia-Pacific region including the Korean peninsula by promptly deploying THAAD in south Korea and thus plug the south Korean regime into its project for building its global missile shield.
What matters is the ambiguous behavior of the south Korean regime reading its American master's mind over the case. This is just an insult and challenge to the south Korean public strongly urging the retraction of THAAD project.
The surest solution to the issue of THAAD is to completely nullify its deployment project and drive the already deployed equipment of trouble-causing THAAD out of south Korea.
The U.S. should bring its war monster THAAD back to its mainland.
The present regime of south Korea styling itself a "product of the public candlelight actions" should not follow in the footsteps of the Park Geun Hye group, which left only traces of treachery while being keen on sycophancy toward the U.S., by properly understanding the public demand.
It should also mete out capital punishment immediately on those who masterminded the introduction of THAAD like Kim Kwan Jin and Han Min Gu who are being censured by the south Korean public as modern-day "five Ulsa (1905) traitors." -0-
FM Spokesman Hits Behavior of U.S. and Its Vassal Forces
Pyongyang, May 20 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is trying hard to create international atmosphere for sanctions against the DPRK over the test-fire of its ground-to-ground medium-to-long range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12.
What is ridiculous is that the U.S. and its vassal forces advertise that more than 20 countries and international bodies denounced the launch of rocket Hwasong-12, claiming that their anti-DPRK moves were enjoying international support.
A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement on Friday branded such behavior as a cynical ploy of making profound confusing of right and wrong.
The statement said:
Now several times more countries than stated by the hostile forces oppose the U.S. hostile policy and its frantic joint military drills, nuclear threats and military adventurous moves which have aggravated the situation in the Korean peninsula and the region and compelled the DPRK to bolster up its nuclear force.
At a recent UN Security Council emergency meeting, the U.S. representative complained that some countries mislead the public opinion, contending that the U.S. threatens north Korea. This shows the position of the U.S. floundering in a dilemma.
No matter how hard the U.S. may try, it can never cover up its criminal nature as aggressor and provocateur disturbing peace and security in the region and the rest of the world.
When lies and fabrications did not work on the international community desirous of independence and justice, some maniacs of the Trump administration forced other countries to make decision for supporting north Korea or the U.S. They have behaved rudely, reigning over the UN, threatening that the U.S. would impose strict sanctions upon any country, organization or individual and take issue with any international body, when they support north Korea.
If such high-handed and arbitrary practices are allowed in the international arena, neither independent development of sovereign countries nor genuine international justice can be ensured and the world would become a barren land where the robber-like U.S. rules the supreme.
The tightened pressure upon the DPRK by the U.S. misleading the world public would only compel the DPRK to bolster up its nuclear deterrent for justice. -0-
Japan Slammed for Fueling U.S. Saber-Rattling
Pyongyang, May 16 (KCNA) -- The Institute for Asian Studies of the DPRK Institute for International Studies issued an article Tuesday to denounce the Japanese reactionaries for working with bloodshot eyes to render the situation on the Korean peninsula extremely tense and attain their sinister intention by giving a shot in the arm of the U.S. in its reckless moves to provoke a war against the DPRK.
The Japanese authorities including Abe cried out for putting maximum pressure on the DPRK while branding its nuclear and rocket launches as a serious "threat" to world peace and security in their phone dialogue and talks with the U.S. president, during the U.S. vice-president's visit to Japan, at negotiations with the U.S. and south Korea in Tokyo and on other occasions.
In March and April when the U.S. came out with "military option" and "preemptive attack" theory while maximizing the level of military pressure on the DPRK through Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military drills, unprecedented all-out nuclear war rehearsal in terms of scope, intensity and mode of implementation, Japan fully welcomed it and such politicians as the defense minister cried out for dispatch of the "Self-Defense Forces" to "rescue Japanese" in south Korea, openly indicating their attempt at reinvasion of the Korean peninsula.
Lurking behind the Japanese reactionaries' act of maximizing the "story about threat" from the DPRK and the story of "crisis on the Korean peninsula" while chiming in the U.S. anti-DPRK war moves is their intention to secure "justifications" for realizing at any cost the scheme to turn Japan into a military giant and launch overseas aggression, the article says, and goes on:
The reason why the Japanese reactionaries look forward to a war on the Korean peninsula is that they want to repeat the history of aggression so as to feel the "taste" again they enjoyed during the past war.
The Japanese economy has now greeted "lost three decades" beyond "lost two decades". Business cycle has stopped with stagnant excessive production structure overwhelming the decrease in demand and there is prevalent overall shrinkage of fund, equipment and labor, which makes it hard for the economy to get out of depression.
Another purpose the Japanese reactionaries seek to frantically resort to the "story about crisis on the Korean peninsula" is to calm down anti-Abe sentiment by diverting the internal focus on to the DPRK and create an environment favorable for long stay in power.
Recent disclosure of the scandal of Abe family over Moritomo school, the issue of transferring Futenma U.S. military base, economic crisis and all sorts of labor disaster and social evils that break out in chain, delayed recovery from the great quake in east Japan and earthquake in Kumamoto and other instable factors contribute to the approval rate for the Abe regime that goes into steady tailspin.
All facts clearly prove that the Japanese reactionaries are trying to use the U.S. reckless saber-rattling as a golden opportunity for attaining their purposes to turn Japan into a military giant and realize overseas aggression.
The Japanese authorities will face only miserable defeat with the land of Japan turning into a heap of debris by the merciless punishment by the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK, if they think of working as a shock brigade for executing the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK and foolishly dreaming of gaining "great windfall" just as in the last Korean War.
Japan should be free of megalomania and stop running amuck. -0-
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Slams U.S. Politician for Hurting Dignity of DPRK Supreme Leadership
Pyongyang, May 5 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA Friday as regards an invective against the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK made by a U.S. congressman:
On May 3 Sen. Cory Gardner, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on East Asia and the Pacific, spoke ill of the dignity of the DPRK supreme leadership, when interviewed by NBC.
The slandering words made by Cory Gardner, a man tantamount to a mentally deranged, is a serious provocation that can never be overlooked.
It is misfortune of the U.S. that among its politicians is such human reject as Cory Gardner devoid of proper appearance as human being, to say nothing of elementary judging ability.
Cory Gardner, who took the lead in trumpeting about "sanctions and pressure" on the DPRK, guided by his deep-seated repugnancy toward it, did hurt even the dignity of the DPRK supreme leadership only to disclose his true colors as a die-hard confrontational maniac.
Fanatics, who dare point an accusing finger at the dignity of the DPRK supreme leadership whom the Korean army and people uphold as their sun, can never evade the sledge-hammer blows of punishment to be mounted by them.
Cory Gardner will be made to feel deep regret of his wild act of daring to hurt the dignity of the DPRK supreme leadership. -0-
U.S. Muscle-flexing Can Never Browbeat DPRK: Foreign Ministry Spokesman
Pyongyang, April 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK released the following statement on Friday:
The situation on the Korean Peninsula and in the region has reached an extremely dangerous phase due to the mad-cap nuclear war provocations of the U.S. to violate the sovereignty and vital rights of the DPRK at any cost.
Recently, the authorities of the Trump Administration are spouting a load of rubbish calling for browbeating the DPRK by force of arms every day. They are crying out for settling the issue with the help of someone, seeking to bring nuclear aircraft carrier strike groups one after another to the waters off the Korean Peninsula.
Such intimidation and blackmail can never frighten the DPRK.
The invincible revolutionary Paektusan army, closely following the maneuvers of the U.S., is waiting for an order only after rounding off its full preparedness to counter them immediately.
It is an unshakable will of the DPRK to go to the end if the U.S. wants to remain unchanged in its confrontational stance.
The army of the DPRK has already clarified that its heaviest counteractions include a sudden preemptive attack involving maneuvers on the ground, in seas, under waters and in the air and various other methods and the Korean-style tough counter-actions will be promptly taken to cope with the provocations of any forms and levels from the U.S.
The world will clearly witness this time the fact that gone are the days never to return when the U.S. forced its will upon other countries.
The DPRK, a peace-loving socialist state, is setting great store by peace. But it neither fears a war nor wants to avoid it.
The DPRK is a nuclear power capable of countering any option and means of the U.S. and will not avoid any option made by it.
As the DPRK had access to a powerful nuclear deterrent to protect itself from the U.S. nuclear threat, the DPRK will react to a total war with an all-out war, a nuclear war with nuclear strikes of its own style and surely win a victory in the death-defying struggle against the U.S. imperialists. -0-
DPRK Government's Memorandum on Kim Jong Un's Exploits
Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) -- The DPRK government Thursday released a memorandum titled "The immortal feats, performed by respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un to most strikingly demonstrate the dignity and might of our Republic under the uplifted great banner of simultaneously developing the two fronts, will shine forever."
The memorandum referred to the fact that Kim Jong Un made an epoch-making declaration indicating the way of independence and justice on March 31, 2013.
He laid down a fresh strategic line of simultaneously pushing forward the economic construction and the building of nuclear force at the March 2013 Plenary Meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea.
He set the line as a strategic one of the party and the state by carrying forward the exploits of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il who accomplished the great cause of having access to nuclear weapons despite all difficulties. He thus broke the world political structure centered on the existing nuclear powers and fundamentally changed the world political landscape and made the DPRK demonstrate its dignity as the most powerful country which no one dares to provoke.
The fresh line provided the army and people of the DPRK with a firm guarantee for frustrating the U.S. imperialists' wild ambition to annex the northern half of the Republic and reduce all Koreans to modern-day slaves by taking a firmer hold on the nuclear shield for self-defence and reliably protecting their ideology, social system and right to existence.
His presentation of the line marked an event to be specially recorded as it opened a new phase in the development of the revolutionary ideology and theories in the era of independence.
Noting that the line has resulted in creating legendary stories about heroes and bringing about all blessings, the memorandum said:
The respected Supreme Leader has energetically guided an epoch-making great cause of bolstering up the nuclear deterrence of Juche Korea for self-defence in every way, determined to successfully accomplish the great leaders' cause of building a nuclear power.
In order to provide a powerful military guarantee for defending the sovereignty of the country and destiny of the nation and victoriously pushing forward the cause of building a socialist power, he has always made trips to the front despite strong wind to guide various forms of military drills by units of the Korean People's Army under the banner of simultaneously developing the two fronts.
Thanks to his indefatigable efforts and dedication, the DPRK could emerge with dignity a nuclear power in the East and the world's military power.
The past four years, during which the army and people of the DPRK have worked hard to implement the line set forth by Kim Jong Un, are woven with historic events in which they have brought about spectacular leap forward and miracles in the drive to build a socialist economic giant and a highly-civilized nation and improve the standard of people's living by racing against time.
The memorandum also referred to the facts that the world people have expressed great joy and appreciation of the reality in the DPRK dashing ahead like the wind towards the greatest victory under the banner of the above-said line.
It praised Kim Jong Un as the peerless patriot and great guardian of independence and justice as he has performed undying feats for the country and the nation, the times and mankind by advancing and creditably implementing the fresh line of simultaneously developing the two fronts to turn the DPRK into a matchless nuclear power and usher in a golden age of prosperity.
The army and people of the DPRK will further reinforce a nuclear sword for self-defence, the life and soul of the nation and national treasure of reunified Korea, and dash ahead like the wind towards the high eminence of prosperity with the strength, spirit and speed of Korea, holding higher the banner of simultaneously developing the two fronts under the guidance of Kim Jong Un. -0-
U.S. Deceptive Farce Denounced
Pyongyang, March 24 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea on Friday issued a statement titled "U.S. should not run wild, pondering over the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its attempt at a preemptive strike".
The statement said that the new U.S. administration is floating a rumor that it has excluded the plan for a preemptive attack on the DPRK despite its recent bluffing that it was examining all-inclusive policies toward the DPRK comprising the political, military, diplomatic, economic and all other fields.
This is a deception to calm down criticism of the public at home and abroad directed toward its extreme hostile policy toward the DPRK and its toughest countermeasure, and a revelation of a criminal design to put the preemptive attack plan into a practice, it noted.
It urged the new U.S. administration to listen to voice of concern made inside its own country about the serious consequences to be entailed by the preemptive strike and to make a wise option to evade a miserable fate.
It also urged the U.S. to immediately stop the racket for war exercises aimed at preemptive strike against the DPRK and take all means for a preemptive attack out of the Korean peninsula and its vicinity.
If the U.S. shows even the slightest sign of a preemptive attack on the DPRK, bereft of reason, the powerful nuclear strike means of the DPRK will blow up the bases of aggression and provocation with its-style offensive and preemptive nuclear attack, the statement said.
It warned that the U.S. should not run wild, pondering over the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its attempt at a preemptive attack. -0-
Loneliness of Park Geun Hye Is Deserved Outcome-CPRC Policy Department Spokesman
Pyongyang, March 3 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Policy Department of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country (CPRC) of the DPRK said in a statement Friday that the wretched plight of lonely dragon lady of Chongwadae is deserved outcome of her thrice-cursed crimes.
With her impeachment trial imminent, Park of south Korea finds herself all the more lonely and demented with her confidants getting away from her, the statement said, and went on:
Her American master whom she served with total dedication also treats her like a street woman, making her plight all the more pitiful.
The successive rulers of south Korea all met miserable ends, being forsaken by the people. But none of them spent every minute in such loneliness as Park.
Such a matchless imbecile hardly worth a human being was in power, a shame and disgrace of the nation before the world.
Her wretched and pitiful plight is something she deserves for her thrice-cursed acts of treachery against the people and reunification over four years of her office.
Only stern sledge-hammer blows of history and nation await those who go against the trend of the times and desire of people.
Park is to be recorded in history as the "president" with the most miserable end among the successive puppet rulers.
Anyone who follows in the footsteps of Park will meet the same miserable end as Park's.-0-
Planned S. Korea-U.S. Joint Military Drill Slammed
Pyongyang, February 13 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Nationwide Emergency Measure Committee against DPRK-targeted Nuclear War Exercises issued a statement Monday as regards the fact that the south Korean puppet forces are going busy to stage the largest-ever Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises together with the U.S. in upcoming March.
The statement says: The said drill which will involve huge aggression forces, including all nuclear strike means of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces, will take place under the plan for a preemptive strike at the DPRK, including 4D operation scenario envisaging the "detection" of its nuclear and missile bases, "defence" from them, "disturbance and destruction" of them and "beheading operation." This is an open disclosure of the attempt to launch a nuclear war against the DPRK.
The puppet forces' racket for a war against the DPRK and the hostile policy of the U.S. which actively supports it are an intolerable challenge to the Korean nation's desire and aspiration after peace and reunification. And they constitute an open violation of the dignity and sovereignty of the DPRK.
Hostility, discord, distrust and confrontation have now gone beyond such tolerance limit that any slightest and accidental conflict may lead to an unpredicted incident on the Korean peninsula. This is the situation prevailing on the peninsula at present.
The army and people of the DPRK will take appropriate countermeasures depending on the level of the nuclear war racket being planned and pressed for by the south Korean puppet forces with the U.S. involved.
The aggressors and provocateurs had better stop their rash actions, pondering over what counter-actions will be entailed by their reckless and serious nuclear war racket against the DPRK. -0-
Joint Conference of Government, Political Parties and Organizations of DPRK
Pyongyang, January 18 (KCNA) -- A joint conference of the government, political parties and organizations of the DPRK was held at the People's Palace of Culture on Wednesday to carry through the tasks for national reunification set forth by respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un in his New Year Address.
Present there were Kim Yong Nam, Kim Yong Chol, Ro Tu Chol, the chairman of a friendly party, officials of working people's and public organizations, officials concerned of the North Side Committee for Implementing the June 15 Joint Declaration, the Pan-National Alliance for Korea's Reunification and the Pan-National Alliance of Youth and Students for Korea's Reunification and other representatives of the government, political parties and organizations of the DPRK.
The conference discussed the agenda item "On opening up a broad avenue to independent reunification by the concerted efforts of all Koreans this year of significance, true to the historic New Year Address of respected Supreme Leader Comrade Kim Jong Un".
Ri Son Gon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country of the DPRK, made a report to be followed by speeches by Kim Yong Dae, chairman of the C.C., Korean Social Democratic Party, Jong Yong Nam, first secretary of the C.C., Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist Youth League, and Kang Ji Yong, chairman of the Religious Believers Council of Korea.
The reporter and speakers noted that Kim Jong Un in his New Year Address called for opening up a broad avenue to independent reunification by the concerted efforts of all Koreans this year marking the 45th anniversary of the July 4 Joint Statement and the 10th anniversary of the October 4 Declaration and indicated overall tasks and ways to put the proposal into practice.
They fully supported and approved the line and policy of national reunification advanced by the Supreme Leader in his New Year Address as an immortal grand programme for accomplishing the cause of the country's reunification by pooling will and efforts of all Koreans.
They stressed the need for all Koreans in the north and the south and abroad to accelerate the nationwide grand march towards reunification by their united efforts and thus glorify this year as a very significant year in bringing about a new phase of independent reunification.
An appeal to all Koreans was adopted at the conference. -0-
Kim Jong Un Calls for Paving Wide Avenue to National Reunification
Pyongyang, January 1 (KCNA) -- Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un in his New Year address for 2017 said that this year marks the 45th anniversary of the historic July 4 joint statement and the 10th anniversary of the October 4 declaration, underscoring the need to pave a wide avenue to independent reunification by pooling efforts of the whole nation.
He said it is imperative to take active measures to improve the north-south ties and defuse acute military conflict and the danger of a war between the north and the south.
All kinds of slandering getting on the nerves of the other party and inciting confrontation can not be justified under any circumstances and sinister anti-DPRK smear campaign and hostile acts being staged with hope pinned on the overturn of social system and "change" must immediately be stopped.
Consistent is the stand of the DPRK not to fight with fellow countrymen but defend the wellbeing of the fellow countrymen and peace of the country. The south Korean authorities should not strain the situation by groundlessly faulting the DPRK's exercise of its right to self-defence but respond to our sincere efforts to prevent military conflicts and defuse tension between the north and the south.
All the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad should solidarize and get united on the principle of subordinating everything to national reunification, the cause common to the nation, and actively wage the reunification movement in a nationwide scale. Active contacts and visits should be made irrespective of differing ideology, system, region, idea, class and strata and a nationwide grand gathering for reunification should be realized with the involvement of the authorities, all political parties and organizations in the north and the south and people from all walks of life at home and abroad.
We will hold hands with whoever prioritizes fundamental interests of the nation and wishes for the improvement of the north-south ties.
A nationwide struggle should be dynamically waged to put an end to the U.S. and other outsiders' moves for aggression and intervention aimed at realizing the Asia-Pacific domination strategy while consolidating their control over south Korea, and foil the moves of the group of sycophantic traitors standing against reunification including Park Geun Hye finding a way-out in escalating confrontation with the fellow countrymen while not discerning who the truly principal enemy of the nation is.
The U.S. should face up to the will of the Korean nation for reunification and no longer resort to such scheme of estranging Koreans from one another as egging the anti-reunification forces of south Korea on confrontation and war between the fellow countrymen but take a bold decision to withdraw its anachronistic hostile policy toward the DPRK.
The international community valuing independence and justice should stand against the U.S. and its vassal forces' moves of obstructing peace and reunification of the Korean peninsula, and its surrounding countries should do things helpful to the Korean nation's aspiration and efforts for reunification.
Kim Jong Un underscored the need for all the Koreans in the north and the south and abroad to step up the nationwide grand advance for reunification by the joint efforts of the nation and thus do something to make this year a very significant year in paving a new phase of independent reunification. -0-
S. Korean Forces' Provocation Can Never Save Park Geun Hye: CPRC Policy Department Spokesman
Pyongyang, December 3 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Policy Department of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country (CPRC) of the DPRK released a statement on Saturday as regards the fact that the south Korean puppet regime is getting desperate in military provocation against the DPRK recently, hyping the "security crisis."
Bosses of the south Korean military including the minister of Defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, are frequenting frontline units and special warfare units near the Military Demarcation Line, where they cry out for "full combat-readiness" for launching tough and resolute punishment to cope with "threat of provocation from the north," the statement said, and went on:
They let warships and drones infiltrate into the territorial waters and air of the DPRK and staged a large-scale live shell firing drill in the hot spot of the West Sea to persistently increase military tensions on the ground and in the waters and air.
They convened a meeting of major commanders of the puppet armed forces 20 odd days earlier though it had been scheduled for December.
Meetings of commanders of various services of the puppet army are being held to hatch plots of military provocation. They are spreading rumors about "instability" across south Korea, hyping "grave security situation created due to possible provocation by the north taking advantage of the administrative vacancy in the south" and "imminent nuclear and missile tests by the north."
Lurking behind this is a sly trick to invent at any cost a case of armed clash between the north and the south by irritating the DPRK, quell the south Korean people's struggle for ousting Park Geun Hye under that pretext and thus save traitor Park from the abyss of ruin.
There is no guarantee that the Park regime that has been driven to a tight corner would not launch a provocation of war as its last-ditch attempt, and it is only the Korean nation including the south Korean people that will fall victim to it thereof.
No matter how desperately Park and the conservative group move to stay in power under the pretext of "security," they can never escape their fated doom. -0-
Bolstering of Nuclear Force Is to Cope with U.S. Extreme Moves to Stifle DPRK: Foreign Ministry
Pyongyang, November 21 (KCNA) -- The Foreign Ministry of the DPRK released a memorandum on Monday detailing the traces of the crimes the U.S. committed by perpetrating a series of worst-ever hostile acts against the DPRK since the greatest loss suffered by the Korean nation and thus compelling it to bolster up its nuclear force.
Since the year 2012, soon after the passing away of the great leader Comrade Kim Jong Il, the U.S. began to openly pursue the objective to politically stifle the DPRK and overthrow its system by all means, the memorandum said, and went on:
Blatant remarks denying the DPRK's government, system and policy were made by high-level officials of the U.S. and even Obama himself has constantly heaped malicious slander and criticism on the DPRK in his public appearances.
This fully reveals the true nature of the policy of "strategic patience" pursued by the Obama administration, which is none other than an aggressive and heinous "strategic suffocation" policy against the DPRK.
By this time, the "human rights" racket which the U.S. has long made against the DPRK has grown so reckless as to attempt to put their wild ambition of overthrowing the DPRK's system into practice.
The U.S. has gone so far as to breach the basic principles of international laws and ditch its dignity of a superpower by pleading with other countries to join their pressure racket against the DPRK through downgrading or severing ties with it.
Giving an account of the fact that the U.S. revealed its intention to deliver a preemptive nuclear strike against the DPRK and intensified its military threats against the DPRK at a maximum pace during the last five years, the memorandum said:
To take an example of the Key Resolve joint military exercise, one of the typical joint military drills of the U.S. and the south Korean puppets, 2 100 U.S. troops participated in the exercise in the year 2012, but the U.S. steadily increased the number of troops to 3 500 in 2013, 5 200 in 2014 and 8 600 in 2015, and in 2016, 27 000 troops participated in the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle 16 joint military exercises.
Beside the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises, the U.S. conducted over 40 provocative and aggressive military drills under various names on annual basis including Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military exercise, Max Thunder joint air force exercise, Double Dragon joint landing exercise and multilateral RIMPAC naval exercise, joint naval strike exercise, joint special force exercise, joint live firing exercise and so on. The total number of troops the U.S. has committed to these exercises reached over 500 000.
Since the year 2012, the U.S. has consistently conducted various kinds of military drills against the DPRK, deploying its naval forces into and around the Korean peninsula including nuclear carriers, nuclear submarines, Aegis cruisers, Aegis destroyers and guided missile destroyer.
In addition, the U.S. moved B-1B, B-2, B-52 nuclear strategic bombers from the U.S. mainland to Guam and they flew to south Korea several times to conduct drills for landing and dropping nuclear bombs with the purpose of getting ready for a surprise nuclear preemptive strike against the DPRK.
The U.S. proceeded with the deployment of Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System (THAAD) to south Korea in full-scale.
The maneuvers of the U.S. to impose sanctions on the DPRK to suffocate it in the last five years was indeed unprecedented in its pace and intensity.
The U.S. made an issue of the DPRK's legitimate right to peaceful development of outer space and its buildup of self-defensive nuclear deterrence and made frantic attempts to fabricate heinous "sanctions resolutions" by usurping the United Nations Security Council.
Through the so-called UN "sanctions resolutions", the U.S. seeks to prevent the DPRK from its routine financial transactions with other countries; put all the channels linked to the DPRK under tight control; force the inspection of any vessel sailing to and from the DPRK and prohibit entry of such vessel into ports of other countries; have other countries deny permission to any aircraft of the DPRK to take off from, land in and overfly their territory.
The U.S. went so far as to devise a provision for the "ban on export and import of luxury goods" and prevented import of sport apparatus which has nothing to do with development of arms and even included daily necessities and children's toys in the list of "banned goods".
Pursuant to the anti-DPRK "sanctions resolutions" it has forged, the U.S. is running amuck to impose unilateral sanctions while forcing other countries to get on board.
All the facts above clearly substantiate the truth that the root cause of escalated tension on the Korean peninsula lies with the U.S. hostile policy and nuclear threats against the DPRK, not the latter's nuclear and missile tests.
The U.S. should face up to the new strategic position of the DPRK and take actual measures to show that they are willing to scrap its anachronistic hostile policy and nuclear threat against the DPRK. -0-
