Pyongyang, July 29 (KCNA) -- Recently the south Korean puppet group made a litany of jargons about the "settlement of the north's nuclear issue" in the wake of the nuclear deal of Iran only to invite criticism and derision of public at home and abroad.
A spokesman for the puppet Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the
minister of Unification of south Korea talked rubbish that "the north's
nuclear issue should be ultimately resolved through negotiations" and
"pressure on it would prove effective." South Korean conservative media
claimed that "choice of bread instead of nukes would be a good model of
settling the north's nuclear issue."
South Korean puppet Foreign Minister Yun Pyong Se and the
representative for the six-party talks were busy touring neighboring
countries, asserting that "the Iranian nuclear deal should be taken as
an occasion of settling the north's nuclear issue" and soliciting
positive "support and role" in this respect,
South Korean media and experts went the lengths of crying out for
"boosting international cooperation to lead the north to dismantling its
nukes," saying that "it was only the north that remains subject to UN
sanctions over its nuclear issue".
These are nothing but childish remarks.
Commenting on the Iranian nuclear deal, public at home and abroad is
unanimous in holding that "north Korea is different from Iran and its
experience is hardly applicable to the north."
Alexander Zhebin, director of the Center for the Research on Korea
of the Institute of Far Eastern Studies of the Russian Academy of
Sciences, said, when interviewed by Sputnik broadcasting service, that
"it was illogical to compare north Korea's situation with the Iranian
He explained reasons as follows:
"North Korea declared that it is a nuclear weapons state after conducting three nuclear tests.
It also clarified that it is ready to fulfill its commitments as a
nuclear weapons state. Under the situation where the U.S. is staging
joint military drills with south Korea under the pretext of the north's
nukes, Pyongyang will never give up its nuclear program unilaterally
without any reward.
On the contrary Pyongyang considers the promotion of its nuclear program as the best option for protecting its power."
As recognized by the world, the DPRK is a full-fledged nuclear
weapons state and its nuclear deterrent is indispensable for it to
defend the sovereignty and vital rights from the U.S. nuclear threats
and hostile policy that have lasted for over half a century.
It is preposterous to compare the Iranian situation with that in the
DPRK as it is harassed by ceaseless large-scale joint military drills
and other military provocations of the U.S. and exposed to its biggest
This being a hard reality, the south Korean puppet group behaves like an ostrich with its head in the sand.
South Korea cannot behave otherwise as it is a colonial servant of the U.S.
It is the puppet group that echoes the voice of Washington like a
parrot and it is the south Korean authorities who have to read the face
of their American master without having their own views.
When one serves a big power, one is bound to follow outsiders' mentality and one's eyes and ears no longer belong to one.
How miserable the south Korean puppet group looks.
The DPRK's nuclear deterrent for self-defense serves as the most
powerful weapon guaranteeing the dignity of Songun Korea and national
security and its position of a nuclear weapons state will get stronger
in any adversity.
The group would be well advised to bear this in mind, though belatedly,
The DPRK will consistently maintain the line of simultaneously
developing the two fronts, no matter what other country does, and the
mission of its nuclear force will remain unchanged as long as the U.S.
pursues hostile policy towards it. -0-
