U.S. Should Make Serious Choice: Spokesman for Institute for American Studies of DPRK Foreign Ministry

Pyongyang, July 6 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Institute for American Studies of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer on Wednesday to the question raised by KCNA as regards the claim being floated in the U.S. that "third offset strategy" should be applied to the Korean peninsula:
    Former officials and experts on East Asian affairs of the U.S. at a recent seminar held at Georgetown University reportedly asserted that "third offset strategy" should be applied to the Korean peninsula as muscle-flexing like joint military drills and introduction of strategic bombers can not thwart the "nuclear and missile threat" coming from the DPRK.
    The "third offset strategy" advanced by the U.S. military in 2014 calls for modernizing weaponry to the maximum and increasing the cyber and electronic warfare capability by introducing ultra-modern military technology and thus rounding off a combined operational commanding system to cope with the moves being stepped up by other big powers to develop their ultra-modern weapons.
    The above-said claim is a manifestation of the extreme hostile moves of the U.S. to stifle the DPRK by mobilizing not only conventional and nuclear forces but also ultra-modern war hardware, and a revelation of its ill-minded purpose to get undisguised in its moves to maintain its military edge in Northeast Asia under the pretext of the "threat" from the DPRK.
    The DPRK is fully capable of making any strategy of the U.S. go belly-up determinedly, to say nothing of the "third offset strategy."
    The U.S. is crying out for countering the "nuclear and missile threat" from the DPRK but it is just the U.S. which has escalated the danger of war through ceaseless arms buildup and war drills on the Korean peninsula and in its vicinity.
    If the U.S. does not want to meet its miserable end in the all-out confrontation with the DPRK, it should make a serious choice, clearly understanding the latter's strategic position and facing up to the change of the times. -0-
