Pyongyang, April 4 (KCNA) -- The U.S. House of Representatives is mulling passing a "bill on escalating sanctions with respect to transactions relating to North Korea".
The bill the keynote of which is to seek the sinister intention of
totally excluding the DPRK from the international financial system is
nothing new as it is part of a series of the U.S. persistent moves for
stifling it through sanctions.
However, the U.S. is making much fuss, advertising it as if it were
of significance. This is nothing but a ridiculous farce staged by those
who are frightened by the daily increasing political and military might
of the DPRK.
The U.S. modified and supplemented the "North Korea Sanctions and
Policy Enhancement Act of 2016" of the Obama administration which
admitted a total failure in its DPRK policy. This fact reveals that the
U.S. is resorting to the last expedient.
No matter how hard the U.S. may beat the worn-out drum for sanctions, it cannot sound properly.
The U.S. "doctrine of sanctions being all-powerful" has already gone
totally bust in this land and the "doctrine of useless sanctions"
against the DPRK is heard even among the hostile forces.
Nothing is more foolish than the U.S. scenario to put under control
the political and military might of the full-fledged nuclear weapons
state through the bankrupt "racket for escalating sanctions."
The U.S. imperialists and their vassal forces cooked up the
"sanctions resolution" in March last year, blustering that the
unprecedentedly harsh sanctions would force the DPRK to bend its knees
within six months. But they had better recall what terrible
miscalculation it was.
Within their "timetable" the DPRK succeeded in the test-fire of
ground-to-ground medium to long-range strategic ballistic rocket
Hwasong-10, test-fire of SLBM (submarine-launched ballistic missile),
the ground jet test of a new type high-thrust engine of a carrier rocket
for the geo-stationary satellite and explosion test of nuclear warhead
to startle the world and demonstrate the might of the nuclear power all
over the world.
It is needless to prove that escalating sanctions against the DPRK
is in direct proportion to the DPRK's bolstering of its national power.
The DPRK is able to prosper in the great spirit of self-reliance and
self-development despite any sanctions and pressure as long as there
are its territory, the Workers' Party of Korea and the DPRK government,
water and air in this land. It is the faith and will of the service
personnel and people of the DPRK.
Sanctions will never work on the DPRK.
The U.S. does not need any "new bill" but a new way of thinking and a new strategy. -
