Pyongyang, April 4 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA on Monday accusing the U.S. of vociferating about "nuclear threat" from the DPRK at the 4th "Nuclear Security Summit":
The 4th "Nuclear Security Summit" took place in Washington recently
to discuss the issues of nuclear terrorism, prevention of nuclear
proliferation and reduction of strategic nuclear weapons.
During the summit the U.S. worked hard to stir up the atmosphere of
sanctions and pressure upon the DPRK by prodding Japan, south Korea and
other followers into creating impressions that the "nuclear threat" from
the DPRK is the biggest problem facing the international community.
This is nothing but a crafty artifice to cover up the U.S. true
colors as the world's biggest nuclear criminal and evade the blame for
the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula.
Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize for advocating "a world without
nuclear weapons" from the beginning of his office but became a swindler
who has done nothing till now close to its end as he has been engrossed
in modernizing nuclear weapons and posing a nuclear threat to the
The above-said summit has taken place four times but the prospect of
denuclearization of the world is becoming gloomier. On the contrary,
nuclear weapons are posing a greater threat to global peace and
security. It is by no means fortuitous that the international community
is claiming Obama is chiefly to blame for this.
Upset by this, the Obama group is trying hard to evade the
accusations by taking issue with the DPRK, a trite method. But this is a
The atrocities the U.S. perpetrated by dropping A-bombs on mankind are the thrice-cursed monstrous crimes.
The U.S. is the world's nuclear criminal who has worked hard to
maintain its hegemonic position by recklessly wielding a nuclear stick,
regarding nuclear threat and blackmail as the tenet of its foreign
This is an undeniable historical fact hard to hide and a stark reality.
It is well known that the Bush administration had posed a nuclear
threat to the DPRK since it designated the anti-U.S. independent states
including the DPRK as "axis of evil" and targets of preemptive nuclear
The Obama administration has squandered a fabulous amount of funds
for modernizing nuclear weapons, far from doing anything for
denuclearization quite contrary to its advocacy of building "a world
without nuclear weapons." After adopting a preemptive nuclear attack on
the DPRK as its policy, it is staging madcap drills under the simulated
conditions of a nuclear war by introducing all type strategic nuclear
strike means into the Korean peninsula
Since the Obama administration took office, the U.S. strategic
nuclear strike means introduced into south Korea have increased several
times, far from decreasing in their scope and number, and its nuclear
war drills have become more provocative in their nature.
The U.S. is, at the same time, escalating the hostile moves against
the DPRK to the maximum, openly revealing its intention to screw up the
political and economic pressure on the DPRK by setting in motion its
followers and allies for the implementation of the UN "resolution on
sanctions" cooked up against the DPRK's inevitable choice for
This is the truth about the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula and the cause of escalating tension.
Confrontation and danger of a war are escalating in Northeast Asia
as the U.S. is seeking to tighten the U.S.-Japan-south Korea triangular
military cooperation and, furthermore, form a new military bloc for
aggression under the pretext of "threat" from the DPRK.
The prevailing situation more urgently requires than ever before the
DPRK to bolster the nuclear deterrent for self-defence as it serves as a
treasured sword to ensure the sovereignty and prosperity of the country
and protect the global peace and security.
The DPRK's bolstering up of its nuclear deterrent in every way is an
inevitable choice and a legitimate exercise of the right to
self-defence to cope up with the U.S. extreme nuclear threat and
blackmail and nuclear war moves.
As already clarified, the DPRK will take decisive toughest
countermeasures against the U.S. ever-escalating nuclear war threat and
pressure in the future, too. -0-
