Pyongyang, July 9 (KCNA) -- The U.S. had the temerity to slander the supreme leadership of the DPRK in a report of the State Department on "human rights" in the DPRK and an ensuing list of objects subject to special sanctions of the Treasury Department on July 6.
The Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement branded the U.S.
actions as thrice-cursed crimes and strongly urged it to immediately and
unconditionally withdraw the recent sanctions that found fault with
dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK. The Foreign Ministry also
seriously warned that in case the U.S. denies this, all diplomatic
contact spaces and channels between the DPRK and the U.S. will be shut
off and the toughest measures for counteraction will follow.
This is a declaration of the will of the army and people of the DPRK
to take merciless retaliation and annihilate the U.S. which does not
hesitate to dare find fault with the supreme leadership of the country
which represents dignity and sovereignty of the DPRK and their own
Now the U.S. hostile moves against the DPRK are inching close to a dangerous phase day by day.
The U.S. is zealously stepping up the preparations for a war of
aggression against the DPRK while getting frantic in its war drills and
arms buildup and getting engrossed in base attack and invectives against
the supreme leadership of the DPRK.
It was against this backdrop that it recently staged open drill of
"beheading operations" with a sordid aim to do harm to the supreme
leadership of the DPRK and now it is resorting even to dirty political
All facts clearly prove that the U.S. attempt at stifling the DPRK has now reached an extremely reckless phase.
The U.S. hostile act against the DPRK is just a last-ditch effort
aimed to check the victorious advance of the DPRK which is bringing
about amazing miracles and innovations day by day despite its vicious
nuclear blackmail and political and economic "sanctions".
The U.S. is seriously mistaken if it thinks it can browbeat the DPRK
with the unprecedented vicious hostile act against the DPRK such as
finding fault with the supreme leadership of the DPRK, and attain its
We have the illustrious Songun commander holding sway over the
imperialists' group, possessed of matchless pluck and far-reaching
wisdom and outstanding commanding art, and powerful army and people who
have formed a thousand-fold fortress around him to devotedly safeguard
The U.S. is going busy to put sanctions and "pressure" on the DPRK,
taken aback by the might of H-bombs, strategic submarines capable of
launching missiles underwater and surface-to-surface medium long-range
strategic ballistic rockets. Utterly foolish is the U.S. calculation
that it can break the single-minded unity of the DPRK more powerful than
Now the army and people of the DPRK consider the U.S. challenge to
the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK as the worst hostile
act in history and an open declaration of a war against the DPRK.
As the U.S. is resorting to base political plots despite the
repeated warnings of the DPRK, it will handle all the issues arising in
relations with the U.S. under wartime law of the DPRK.
The U.S. rulers will be made to keenly experience how foolish and
reckless they were when they dared hurt dignity of the supreme
leadership of the DPRK. -0-
