Pyongyang, June 12 (KCNA) -- The U.S. Department of State recently urged the DPRK to stop making "provocations" and take a meaningful measure for denuclearization, asserting the resumption of the six-party talks entirely depends on the latter.
Earlier, the U.S., at a consultative meeting with Japan and the
south Korean puppet group, falsified the truth, giving impression that
the DPRK has refused to have dialogue with them although they have
wanted to do so.
This is no more than a crafty gimmick of Washington to deceive the
world public through its stereo-typed trumpeting about "dialogue" and
step up its preparations for a new war in the Asia-Pacific.
It is well known to everybody that the DPRK has long called for
resuming dialogue without any precondition and made sincere efforts to
do so but the U.S. has blocked it by raising various unjust
When the DPRK clarified its stand to defuse the danger of a war and
ease tension on the Korean peninsula and, to this end, proposed a
moratorium on its nuclear test in return for the U.S. temporary
cessation of its joint military drills with south Korea, the U.S. turned
down even the former's offer of dialogue concerning the proposal but
responded to it with saber-rattling.
The U.S. has staged a series of military drills against the DPRK in league with the south Korean puppet forces.
The U.S. imperialist aggressor forces and the south Korean puppet
navy staged joint strike drills with various type artillery pieces,
warships and fighters involved and test-fired ballistic missiles, while
going busy with anti-submarine rehearsals in the waters east of Jeju
Island from May 30 to June 3.
The U.S. has continued shipping latest war hardware into south Korea
and formed a new joint division with south Korean puppet forces.
In the " strategic outline" jointly released by the U.S. forces
command in south Korea, the U.S.-south Korea joint command and the "UN
Command" on June 2, the U.S. clarified that it would deploy 60 percent
of its naval forces in the Asia-Pacific and the Indian Ocean, the bulk
of which is expected to be deployed in south Korea, pursuant to its
"rebalancing strategy for Asia-Pacific." Among the latest war hardware
to be deployed in south Korea are EA-18, DDG-1 000 stealth destroyer,
LCS coastal warship, MV-22s, P-8 patrol planes and Aegis destroyers for
intercepting ballistic missiles.
The above-said joint division, the first of its kind in the world,
is to play the role of a flagship and shock brigade for the U.S. nuclear
war. Its mission is to carry out a special task for making a preemptive
strike at the nuclear and missile bases of the DPRK after infiltrating
into it all of a sudden.
All facts go to clearly prove that the U.S. is just the aggressor
and provocateur harassing peace and stability on the Korean peninsula
and in the rest of Northeast Asia to bring dark clouds of a nuclear war
to hang over there.
In the final analysis, the "threat from nukes and missiles from the
north" much touted by the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime has
only brought to light their scenario to attain such a sinister design as
to finally round off their preparations for a nuclear war by bringing
means for a nuclear preemptive strike to south Korea and make such
strikes at the DPRK and its neighboring countries any moment.
It is by no means fortuitous that the Russian Foreign Ministry
asserted that the resumption of the six-party talks and diplomatic
settlement are possible only through the defusing of the tense military
and political situation on the Korean peninsula and in its vicinity.
The U.S. can never evade its responsibility for scuppering the
opportunity for denuclearization on the Korean peninsula and escalating
tension there. -0-
