Pyongyang, March 1 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee made public a statement Wednesday in denunciation of the south Korean puppet authorities running amuck in the anti-DPRK confrontation racket, frightened by the successful test-fire of the surface-to-surface medium to long-range ballistic missile Pukguksong-2.
The statement said:
All the military steps taken by the DPRK in its territorial land,
air and waters are the exercise of the legitimate right to self-defence
to counter the persistent and brigandish nuclear threats and blackmail
of the U.S. and its vassal forces.
It is a wanton violation of the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK
to call the test-fire "provocation, challenge and threat" in a hysteric
The south Korean authorities would be well advised to stop
ridiculous moves of branding the DPRK's measure for self-defense as
"provocation" and mind their own chaotic internal affairs.
They should clearly understand that the army and people of the DPRK
will not use the precious nuclear weapons, which they built with much
effort, just against the puppet group of traitors.
The new U.S. administration should not be too much concerned about
the regular measures for bolstering up capabilities for self-defense
taken by the DPRK, a country far away across the ocean from the U.S., a
shameful behavior unbecoming for the "super power", but be wise to be
concerned more about its good administrative beginning so as not to
follow in the regretful footsteps of its preceding administration.
Not only the south Korean authorities but also all the hostile
riffs-raffs keen on anti-DPRK confrontation moves should not act rashly.
Invariable is the stand of the DPRK to continuously bolster up the
military capabilities for self-defense the pivot of which is a nuclear
force and the preemptive attack capability unless the U.S. and south
Korea give up their ambition for aggression evidenced by war drills
staged at the doorstep of the DPRK under the veil of annual ones.
The DPRK will continue to make legitimate and responsible efforts to
protect the sovereignty of the country, vital rights of the nation,
peace of the Korean peninsula and security of the region, no matter what
others may say. -0-
