Pyongyang, May 11 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is persistently spreading the story about "nuclear threat" from the DPRK, asserting it has "violated the NPT and harassed global peace and security."
U.S. Secretary of State Kerry at the recent "2015 NPT Review
Conference" held in New York, pulled up the DPRK over its non-existent
"nuclear threat, " blustering that it should take an action without fail
to dispel the concern of the international community over its nuclear
What Kerry uttered is nothing but a cynical ploy of the U.S., the
world's biggest nuclear weapons state chiefly responsible for nuclear
proliferation, to divert the world public opinion critical of it to the
The U.S. should be more responsible than other countries for the
issue of nuclear disarmament as it is just the war criminal state which
inflicted a nuclear disaster upon mankind for the first time in history.
Nevertheless, it has persisted in pursuing its aggressive nuclear
policy in disregard of the NPT and its obligation required by
It is going to spend a trillion US dollars for modernizing its nukes for the 30 odd years to come.
It is stepping up the development and updating of its nuclear weapons while putting up the signboard of denuclearization.
It has allotted for research, development, test and manufacture of
nuclear weapons the hugest funds ever since the 1950s. It is going to
spend 355 billion US dollars for modernizing its nuclear warheads for a
nearly decade to come.
It has built bases for producing new type weapon grade plutonium and
nuclear test bases in New Mexico State and started enriching uranium in
a new facility in Tennessee State.
A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State recently asserted
that it is in line with the NPT for the U.S. to deploy nuclear weapons
in NATO member states and get familiar with the technology of using them
together with its non-nuclear member states.
After deploying nukes in member states of NATO in the Cold War era,
the U.S. has kept them there since its demise and staged joint nuclear
war drills with non-nuclear states in Europe.
No NPT provisions allow a nuclear weapons state to share nuclear weaponry and stage drills with non-nuclear states.
This not withstanding, the U.S. has insisted that the nuclear
weapons deployed in NATO member states in Europe are under its permanent
control and they will never be transferred to other countries, staging
joint military drills with non-nuclear states of NATO for decades.
Washington's nuclear policy sparked a race for nuclear development and manufacture in the international arena.
The director of the Department for Non-proliferation and Arms
Control of the Russian Foreign Ministry said at the above-said New York
conference claimed that the U.S. has laid a stumbling block in the way
of nuclear disarmament. He accused Washington of refusing to sign the
CTBT while pushing forward the establishment of global MD system and
working hard to translate its "conception of prompt global strike" into a
This clearly shows what the U.S. seeks in actuality through its call for building "a world without nuclear weapons."
This being a hard reality, it is claiming that the DPRK's
self-defensive nuclear deterrent to cope with its high-handed practices
to stifle the DPRK by nukes is "posing a nuclear threat" to the world.
This is the height of hypocrisy to mislead the world public opinion.
With no sleight of hand can the U.S. evade the responsibility as the
very one which has posed a nuclear threat to the world and sparked off
worldwide arms race. -0-
