Pyongyang, March 26 (KCNA) -- The U.S. has undisguisedly revealed its ulterior design to deploy at any cost THAAD in south Korea, trumpeting about the missile "threat" from the DPRK more noisily than ever before.
A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement on Thursday said in this regard:
The U.S. is busy staging joint military drills against the DPRK in a
bid to push it to taking strong counteractions and steadily escalate
the tension on the Korean peninsula, one of immediate goals of which is
to press for the deployment of THAAD in south Korea.
What the U.S. seeks in this deployment is to round off its
preparations for mounting a preemptive strike at the DPRK and create
favorable conditions for containing China and Russia, its strategic
rivals, pursuant to its strategy for dominating the world.
The projected THAAD deployment was prompted by the U.S. strategic
purpose to form the U.S.-Japan-south Korea triangular military alliance,
the Asian-version of NATO, and set up a global missile defence system
at any cost.
The south Korean puppet forces with inveterate humiliating
sycophancy toward the U.S. are making no scruple of perpetrating acts of
blocking the reunification of the country and harassing peace and
stability in the region as a shock brigade of the U.S. for carrying out
its strategy for dominating the world.
The south Korean puppet group is keen to maintain its power and
realize its wild ambition for stifling the DPRK with the backing of the
U.S. The group is working hard to turn the Korean peninsula, a hotspot
where the complicated interests of big powers are intermingled, into a
theatre of fierce scramble among them by introducing the dangerous war
hardware into south Korea.
In case THAAD is deployed in south Korea, that will establish a new
Cold War structure in Northeast Asia and the peninsula will be again
exposed to the danger of being reduced to the theatre of a war of big
The more desperately the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces
resort to their war drills and arms buildup against the DPRK, the
further the latter will bolster up its war deterrence to cope with them.
