Pyongyang, July 13 (KCNA) -- The U.S. deputy secretary of Defense at a recent meeting openly talked about the U.S. plan for modernizing its nuclear force.
He blustered that the 2021-2035 plan for modernizing nuclear weapons
has already been worked out by the Pentagon and 18 billion U.S. dollars
would be annually required to carry it out.
Noting the Pentagon is pursuing the plan for "modernizing the three
major parts of nuclear weapons" such as surface-to-surface missile, SLBM
and long-range bomber, he added that it would take 30 years to carry
out it and require a trillion U.S. dollars for this purpose.
This brought to light the sinister design of the U.S. which has been loudmouthed about "a world without nuclear weapons."
As known, Washington made the initiative on building "a world
without nuclear weapons" for the first time in April, 2009, giving
impression that it would set an "example" in building such world.
Against this backdrop, Obama in a recent statement cried out for "opting to increase the force of the NPT."
However, the U.S. has massively deployed nuclear weapons in various
parts of the world including south Korea and conducted nuclear tests
more frequently in a craftier manner.
A brass hat of the U.S. army confessed that nuclear weapons factories of the U.S. have never been idle.
Some nuclear weapons the U.S. claims to have dismantled are aging
ones without any guarantee for its performance and hard to maintain and
Washington may advertise as if it had cut down the number of nuclear
weapons in a small measure but their quality has so rapidly improved
that it baffles human imagination.
Nevertheless, it is putting political, economic and military
pressure upon those countries bolstering up their defence capabilities
to cope with its outrageous nuclear threat, deliberately pulling up
This indicates that "denuclearization" much touted by it is, in
essence, a scenario to force other countries to dismantle their nukes
and make a monopoly of nuclear weapons.
Now it is stepping up the modernization of nuclear weapons under the
pretext of "threat" from the DPRK, Russia and China, etc.
Needless to say, the U.S. scenario is aimed to contain the DPRK and
its neighboring powers through its nuclear edge and thus dominate the
The U.S. remains unchanged in its strategy for emerging the only
dominator of the world by dint of nuclear weapons and its hard-line
hostile policy toward the DPRK has become ever more outrageous.
Under this situation the DPRK renews its unshakable will to counter
the U.S. brandishing a nuclear stick with a strong nuclear deterrent
The service personnel and people of the DPRK will continue holding
fast to the line of simultaneously developing the two fronts and further
bolster up the nuclear deterrent for self-defence as long as there
remain on this earth the U.S. and its allied forces keen to stifle the
