Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) -- After deciding to deploy THAAD in south Korea, the U.S. recently transferred a battery of PAC-3 to the base of U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in Kunsan, North Jolla Province of south Korea from the U.S. Air Force's Kadena base, Okinawa.
Earlier, the U.S. decided to deploy on a permanent basis nuclear-powered
submarine Mississippi and super-large nuclear-powered Ohio,
which had entered Pusan Port, in the waters surrounding the Korean
peninsula. The U.S. is blustering that it would additionally deploy
improved PAC-3 MSE, whose maximum altitude is twice that of PAC-3 now
deployed in the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces present in south
A spokesman for the National Peace Committee of Korea (NPCK) said in a statement on Thursday:
These are extremely dangerous military provocations as they further
escalate the tension on the Korean peninsula and disturb the regional
peace and security.
To force the U.S. imperialist aggressor
troops to pull out of south Korea is the basic way of foiling the U.S.
frantic armed buildup for a nuclear war and preventing a nuclear war
disaster on the peninsula.
The U.S. troops in south Korea are
like a time bomb planted in the powder keg for a nuclear war and the
withdrawal of the U.S. troops is the most urgent matter which brooks no
The struggle to defuse the danger of a nuclear
war on the peninsula and guarantee the regional peace and security
should start from pulling the U.S. troops out of south Korea.
The DPRK, which joined the front rank of nuclear powers, is now fully
ready to cope with all forms of wars to be ignited by the U.S.
imperialists, and the U.S. troops in south Korea will be the primary
target of our merciless deadly strike.
The U.S. should properly
face up to the strategic position of the DPRK and the trend of the times
and behave itself and pull the aggressor forces and war equipment out
of south Korea without delay.
If the south Korean authorities
sincerely hope for peace and reunification, they should roll back their
despicable sycophantic pro-U.S. policy and make a resolute decision to
withdraw the U.S. aggressor forces from south Korea, as unanimously
demanded by all Koreans. -0
