KCNA Commentary on Japan's Military Cooperation with Britain, France


Pyongyang, January 22 (KCNA) -- In recent days Japan is running highly fevered in their moves for building up military relations with Britain, France and others.
Shortly ago, Prime Minister Abe said in a joint press conference with his British counterpart that the British frigate Montrose would be dispatched to Japan early this year as part of measures for putting pressure on the DPRK. And foreign ministers and defense ministers of France and Japan had talks on the attendance of a French sea-patrol plane, frigate and nuclear carrier Charles de Gaulle in a joint drill with the "Self-Defence Forces" of Japan from April.
The Japanese reactionaries' escalated military cooperation with other countries under the pretext of the "DPRK issue" are the revelation of their wicked intention to worsen the situation on the Korean Peninsula at any cost by inviting other countries in their moves and thus speed up the moves to realize their ambition for reinvasion and revival of militarism.
A fresh climate of peace and stability is being created along with the downfall of the old confrontational structure at the present historic turning point that witnesses the improvement of the touch-and-go situation on the Korean Peninsula.
Japan is ostracized in the current trend of the international situation as it has been displeased to see such development of situation and has worked hard to reverse it. Nevertheless, Japan is scheming to take military actions together with France and Britain to worsen the situation, stunning the international community.
It is not fortuitous that foreign media including AFP ridicule Japan is taking precautions against China and north Korea by soliciting France in the situation that the Trump administration remains doubtful in its will to defend its Asian allies.
Today Japan's neighboring countries and regions need no tension to be caused by military threat against others, but remain quite contrary to Japan's war-thirsty remarks.
Therefore, it is a foolish behavior that the Japanese authorities try to make a progress in materializing their wild ambition for militarization and reinvasion with the backing of someone, while talking about sanctions and pressure, irrespective of the trend of the times.
In particular, the dispatch of warships mulled over by some countries to the waters around the Korean Peninsula under the pretext of implementing the UNSC "sanctions resolutions" comes to be a dangerous military provocation to infringe upon the sovereignty of the DPRK and incite tension and confrontation.
Worse still, they are going to take military actions against the DPRK together with Japan which does not get rid of the disgrace of an enemy state for inflicting untold holocaust upon Asians in the last century and is working hard to produce justification for its militarization by bedeviling the situation on the Korean Peninsula. This is incurring the great wrath of the Korean people.
The stabilized situation on the Korean Peninsula and in the region is never something that came true with ease, and any country desirous of genuine peace is bound to value the current situation.
To propel the development of the positive situation on the Korean peninsula, not to go against it, is the responsibility to be fulfilled by the UNSC member that is on a mission to ensure world peace and security.
Whoever goes against the peaceful trend created on the Korean Peninsula and in the region can never evade the blame for the consequences to be entailed by it. -0

      London 22nd of January Juche 108 (2019)    
  The Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK),the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE),the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA) and the British Solidarity Committee for Peace and Reunification on the Korean Peninsula (BSCPRKP) issued a joint statement on  the 51st  anniversary of the capture of the US imperialist armed spy ship the "USS Pueblo" by the heroic Korean People's Army navy .
    It is now 50 years since the "USS Pueblo "was captured by the navy of the heroic and invincible Korean Peope's Army , inflicting a defeat on US imperialism.
                                                 
                         

  The captured ship is a symbol of victory in the anti-US, anti-imperialist struggle .The "Pueblo " is now on display at the Fatherland Liberation War Museum of the DPRK in Pyongyang . It forms the central part of the display of captured enemy weapons. It is the only US warship to be in the hands of an adversary of the US.  The ship had remained in Wonsan for many years and then in 1998 was taken to the River Taedong in Pyongyang and moored at the site where the USS General Sherman was sunk by Korean patriots led by Kim Ung U the grandfather of the great revolutionary leader President Kim Il Sung . In 2013 it was moved to the reconstructed and expanded Fatherland Liberation War Museum on the River Potong.
  A delegation of of the Juche Idea Study Group of England and  the Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK has visited the "Pueblo " four time ,once in 2008 and at the new site in 2013 , October 2015 and April 2017. The "Pueblo " is a graphic and substantial demonstration of US imperialism's crimes against the Korean  people .
 The "Pueblo " was captured 7 miles off Wonsan on the east coast of the DPRK on the 23rd of January 1968 . Its crew were armed and so was the ship ,as it had a machine gun mounted at the stern . A small group of KPA sailors managed to overpower over 80 US personnel and capture them.
   The US imperialists arrogantly demanded that the DPRK hand back both the ship and the crew , threatening to bomb the DPRK. The great leader President Kim Il Sung stood firm saying the DPRK would match all-out war for all-out war and that the only thing the US would get out of it was corpses and death . The modern revisionists,traitors and capitalutionists who are  the    agents of imperialism, had also suggested the DPRK hand back the ship and its crew but the DPRK stood firm and the "USS Pueblo " is still in Pyongyang 50 years after being captured .
 The  "Pueblo " is a living testimony to the bankruptcy of the US hostile policy towards the DPRK.

Rodong Sinmun on Major Contents of Principle of Our State First

Pyongyang, January 22 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun says in an article on Tuesday that the miraculous successes made by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in building a prosperous country in the past are the major contents of the principle of our state first.

The article notes that the DPRK is the country of the dignified people, the country of single-minded unity in which the unity of thoughts is realized, the country of miracles which built the self-supporting national economy and military capability for self-defence and the promising country in which the succession is firm.

It goes on:

The DPRK is, indeed, a genuine country of the people in which the position and role of the popular masses as the master of the state and society are being institutionally guaranteed and the idea of believing in the people as in Heaven and the most advantageous popular policies are being applied.

It is the matchless and great country and invincible power in which everything of the state and society serves the people and the popular masses fulfill their responsibility and role as the master.

There is no country but the DPRK the whole society of which has been imbued with the monolithic idea and the single-minded unity between the Party and people realized.

The prospect of the development of the DPRK is very great as it has the powerful self-supporting national economy and military capability for self-defence, and the DPRK has huge influence on the international arena.

The DPRK has given special priority to the issues of succession to the leadership and the revolutionary tradition and directed great efforts to building the youth power. Herein lies the essential secret of the DPRK which remains unfazed in any storms.

It is the great pride and honor of Juche Korea that it perfectly settled the issue of succession, the knotty problem of other countries, theoretically and practically. -0-
