Pyongyang, January 14 (KCNA) -- A sign of acute China-U.S. confrontation is clearly seen in the run-up to Trump's presidential inauguration. And there is awkward rumor afloat in the world that China would use "north Korea" as a playing card in its confrontation with the U.S. in the future.
The Wall Street Journal and American Interest of the U.S. and the
Financial Times of Britain and many other media of the world are
carrying articles to the effect that there is increasing possibility for
China to counter the Trump administration with "north Korea as a
This can not be construed otherwise than a unilateral viewpoint of
media ignorant of the universal principle concerning the sovereignty of
countries and the true picture of the DPRK.
Explicitly speaking, it is illogical to say that the DPRK can be
used as a "playing card" of others as the country is demonstrating its
might as a political and ideological power and a nuclear power. Firm is
the DPRK's position as a nuclear weapons state whether others recognize
it or not.
One has to face up to the reality of the DPRK clearly and squarely, if one wants to know about it.
The hotspot in which the interests of big powers are intertwined and
the issues of international nature have historically accumulated is the
Northeast Asian region centered on the Korean peninsula.
Historically, the tense situation on the Korean peninsula and the
war atmosphere fanned up on it have been attributable to the U.S. and
other hegemonic forces' diplomatic and political purposes and the Korean
nation has been the biggest victim of the tension on the peninsula.
If the DPRK had not bolstered up and defended its sovereignty, it
would have already faced the miserable fate of modern day slaves in the
21st century, not just ending in the "color revolution" and Mideast
Today the sovereignty of countries and nations is wantonly violated
in different parts of the world due to the hegemonic forces' high-handed
and arbitrary practices and appeasement, and the U.S. and its vassal
forces' sanctions and blockade against the DPRK have reached the
extremes. Even under such situation the DPRK towered as a nuclear power
and a military power in the East no formidable enemies can dare to
The DPRK is not an entity sandwiched between neighboring powers. For
its treasured nuclear sword of justice it has emerged a powerful force
that can spearhead the regional situation as a strategic stronghold in
which the vital interests of big powers are intertwined.
A new dynamic structure has been set up with the DPRK as an absolute parameter.
Nothing can bring down the position of the DPRK that has ranked
itself with dignity among the nuclear powers with a firm hold on the
treasured nuclear sword of justice in order to defend the sovereignty of
the nation and its rights to existence and development and safeguard
the regional peace and stability. It remains strong regardless of
Now is the time for the DPRK to steer the solution of the issue of
peace and stability in Northeast Asia as it has undergone a fundamental
change in its strategic position.
The DPRK will as ever safeguard its peace and security by its own
strength and make a positive contribution to defending the world peace
and stability. -0-
