Pyongyang, April 26 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question put up by KCNA Wednesday in connection with a meeting of the UN Security Council the U.S. plans to convene, terming the step taken by the DPRK to bolster its nuclear deterrent a "threat":
Taking an opportunity of holding chairmanship of the UNSC in April, the U.S. is going to convene a meeting of the UNSC over the issue of denuclearization of the DPRK.
Irony is that the U.S., which is wholly to blame for pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war by staging the largest-ever joint aggression military drills against the DPRK for the past two months after bringing all sorts of nuclear strategic assets to south Korea, is orchestrating the farce of hyping up "threat" from someone.
This is reminiscent of the guilty party filing the suit first.
The U.S. once put up the signboard of "nuclear disarmament" and "world without nuclear weapons" only to deceive the world public. Now it is modernizing its nuclear weapons by spending a trillion U.S. dollars in a bid to secure a nuclear edge. Such direct acts of proliferating nukes should be taken issue with before tabling the denuclearization of the DPRK.
The nuclear force of the DPRK just serves as a treasured sword of justice and creditable war deterrent to protect the sovereignty and dignity of the country and global peace from the U.S. threat to ignite a nuclear war.
The steps taken by the DPRK to bolster its nuclear deterrent is an exercise of its legitimate right to self-defence in accordance with the UN Charter and international law. No one is entitled to fault it.
The government of the DPRK filed complaint with the UNSC several times against the U.S. hostile policy, which caused the DPRK's access to nukes, and the provocative and aggressive large-scale joint military drills, the clearest manifestation of the U.S. nuclear threat and blackmail.
However, the UNSC turned down every complaint but adopted a "resolution" banning the DPRK from taking steps for self-defence for no reason in the light of international law, imposing stricter sanctions upon it.
The UN Secretariat, too, gives no response to the proposal made by the DPRK to hold a forum of international lawyers to clarify the legal ground of the UNSC "resolutions."
What is more serious is the fact that the UNSC has never taken issue with the nuclear threat being posed by its permanent member state to other country, the missile attack made by the member state on a non-nuclear state and the spy satellite and missile launches conducted by its "allies."
The reality goes to clearly prove that the UNSC is the place where the "issue of global peace and security" is settled in the interests of its permanent member states holding veto power, not by yardstick of justice.
The U.S., therefore, is not morally entitled to force the UN member states to carry out the ill-intended "resolution" and the UN member states have no moral obligation to abide by such unfair "resolution."
It is a wild dream for the U.S. to think of depriving the DPRK of its nuclear deterrent through military threat and sanctions. It is just like sweeping the sea with a broom.
In case a war breaks out on the Korean peninsula, the U.S. will be held wholly accountable for causing troubles after bringing lots of strategic assets and special warfare means, not content with persisting in hostile policy toward the DPRK, no matter who will launch a preemptive strike.
The UNSC that has toed the U.S. line will never be able to evade its responsibility, either. -0-
