Pyongyang, April 30 (KCNA) -- Leon V. Sigal, director of the Social Science Research Council of the United States, recently dedicated an article critical of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK to the U.S. magazine National Interest dealing with international relations.
The U.S. is giving impression that it has made efforts to settle the
issues with the DPRK in a diplomatic way, the article said, adding the
DPRK placed moratorium on the production of all nuclear materials for
nearly a decade after the conclusion of the DPRK-U.S. Agreed Framework
in 1994 but the U.S. reneged on its commitment to normalizing the
DPRK-U.S. relations and providing energy and resorted to such hostile
acts as banning the DPRK's banking transactions.
The U.S. prejudice against the DPRK makes it impossible to hold
talks. The U.S. should discuss the security matters of concern with the
DPRK on the principle of mutual respect.
This is, in a word, similar to the assertion that the U.S. should roll back its hostile policy toward the DPRK.
The U.S. ill-intended inveterate repugnancy and deep-rooted hostile
policy toward the dignified DPRK are the main source of constant tension
on the Korean peninsula and the U.S. is chiefly to blame for this.
Genuine peace has never settled on the Korean peninsula even a
moment during the DPRK-U.S. confrontation started in real earnest right
after the end of World War II.
The U.S. has worked hard to pass the buck for it on the DPRK while talking volumes about "provocation" and "threat."
However, this is no more than a fig-leaf to cover up its scenario to invade the DPRK.
There is no ground whatsoever for the DPRK to aggravate the
situation on the Korean peninsula as it is associated with the soul of
the ancestors and remains the cradle of the fellow countrymen.
The U.S. is the arch criminal who turned the peninsula into the
world's hottest spot over which the dark clouds of a nuclear war is
hanging all the time.
It has pursued its hostile policy toward the DPRK for decades in a
bid to use the peninsula, a geopolitical and strategic vantage point, as
a springboard for attaining world supremacy.
It turned south Korea into the world's biggest nuclear arsenal and
put the DPRK on the list of the targets of nuclear attack, frantically
kicking up a racket for provoking a nuclear war against it in the new
The present Obama administration caused the August incident that
pushed the situation to the eve of war on the Korean peninsula last
year. Not content with this, it staged largest-ever nuclear war drills
for invading the north this year while undisguisedly crying out for
"bringing down its social system", creating a touch-and-go situation on
The U.S. following a hostile policy toward the DPRK and stepping up
the nuclear war moves is the sworn enemy of the Korean nation.
The DPRK had access to nuclear weapons, pursuant to a resolute
strategic decision, and steadily bolstered them, foiling the U.S.
hostile policy and reliably protecting the sovereignty of the country
and the nation.
The U.S. hostile policy towards the DPRK is the most criminal one
consistently pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink
of a war and a foolish strategy that compelled the DPRK to possess
Public in every part of the world is becoming increasingly vocal
asserting that the DPRK's access to nuclear weapons was quite just and
the U.S. policy to stifle the DPRK serves as a main source of harassing
peace and security in the region.
The U.S. will have to pay the dearest price for its criminal and
suicidal hostile policy that put the situation on the Korean peninsula
and in the region into crisis and compelled the DPRK to emerge a nuclear
weapons state. -0-
