Pyongyang, February 13 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is massively introducing various types of lethal weapons including nuclear strategic assets into south Korea from the outset of the year under the absurd pretext of "nuclear and missile threat" from the DPRK.
The U.S. plans to stage the largest-ever Key Resolve and Foal Eagle
joint military drills with the south Korean puppet forces in coming
March. To this end, it is going to deploy huge war hardware including
the triad strategic weapons of its air force B-52, B-1B and B-2, and
F-22s. Also, a nuclear submarine and an Aegis destroyer and aircraft
carrier Carl Vinson patrolling Asia-Pacific are expected to be involved
in the projected saber-rattling.
U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines had
been involved in the war rehearsals staged so far but it is something
unusual that deployment of additional strategic assets is under
discussion, arousing deep concern of the international community.
Against this backdrop, the U.S. seeks to round off the deployment of
THAAD in south Korea and the latest stealth destroyer Zumwalt in the
waters off the Korean peninsula within this year.
All facts go to prove that the U.S. threat of aggression to violate
the sovereignty and vital rights of the DPRK is imminent.
It is none other than the U.S. which is increasing the tension on
the Korean peninsula through its aggressive moves to carry out
"pro-active deterrence strategy" and "strategy of massive retaliatory
punishment", hyping "threat from the north" and "unpredictable
There is no reason for the DPRK to be exposed to the U.S. nuclear war threat and blackmail.
The U.S. is running wild to inflict a nuclear disaster upon the
Korean people, not content with its unprecedented moves to isolate the
DPRK politically, blockade its economy and pressurize it by force of
arms for the mere reason that its ideology and social system are
different from the former's and it has not yielded to the former.
The DPRK has bolstered its capabilities for self-defence with a
death-defying will and determination to put a definite end to the
ceaseless nuclear threat and blackmail of the U.S. and has emerged a
full-fledged nuclear power.
It has striven hard to defend its sovereignty and dignity and
preserve regional peace and stability by its own efforts from the
hostile forces' nuclear threat and war moves. There is no reason for
anyone to doubt it.
The DPRK's strategic position has changed. The U.S. had better think
twice about unimaginably catastrophic consequences to be entailed by
its nuclear threat and blackmail at the doorstep of the DPRK.
The best way for Washington to escape the nuclear strike of the DPRK
is to refrain from violating its dignity and security and behave itself
with self-control. -0
