Pyongyang, April 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA Friday as regards the fact that the foreign minister of Australia malignantly pulled up the DPRK:
The foreign minister of Australia in a recent radio program spouted a string of rubbish against the DPRK over its entirely just steps for self-defence, claiming that it seriously threatens regional and global peace and she supports the DPRK policy of the U.S. administration that all choices are on the table.
What she uttered can never be pardoned as it is an act against peace that patronizes and shields the U.S. extreme hostile policy toward the DPRK and nuclear threats and blackmail against it, the root cause of the grave situation prevailing on the Korean Peninsula, and encourages the U.S. to opt for reckless and risky military actions.
The present government of Australia is blindly and zealously toeing the U.S. line.
It is hard to expect good words from the foreign minister of such government. But if she is the foreign minister of a country, she should speak with elementary common sense about the essence of the situation.
It is entirely attributable to the nuclear threat escalated by the U.S. and its anachronistic policy hostile to the DPRK that the situation on the Korean Peninsula is inching close to the brink of war in an evil cycle of increasing tensions.
If Australia persists in following the U.S. moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and remains a shock brigade of the U.S. master, this will be a suicidal act of coming within the range of the nuclear strike of the strategic force of the DPRK.
The Australian foreign minister had better think twice about the consequences to be entailed by her reckless tongue-lashing before flattering the U.S. -0-
