Pyongyang, July 25 (KCNA) -- A spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) gave the following answer to question put by KCNA on July 25, over the fact that the director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) dared to talk about "removal of the supreme leadership" of the DPRK:
On July 20, the U.S. CIA Director Pompeo mentioned impertinently, at a
security forum hosted by a civilian organization, about the "removal of
the supreme leadership" of the DPRK, saying that what is most dangerous
about the north Korean nuclear issue is the character who holds the
control over the nuclear weapons and that the intelligence community and
the Department of Defense are figuring out the way to separate the
weapons from someone who might well have intent to use them.
Although his reckless remarks are just balderdash of a guy who has
become so angrily desperate due to the ever-increasing nuclear strike
capability of the DPRK, they have gone over the line, and it has now
become clear that the ultimate aim of the Trump administration's hostile
policy towards the DPRK is the "regime change" in the DPRK.
That the person who is supposed to be in charge of all foreign
intelligence in the U.S., harbors an illusion that it could separate our
army and people from our supreme leadership is an expression of his
illiteracy about the DPRK and an explicit illustration of incompetence
of the U.S. intelligence community.
The successive U.S. administrations could not but fail in the DPRK-U.S.
confrontation. That is also attributable to the "merits" of such stupid
intelligence community of the U.S.
Our army and people have never thought about their destiny and future separated from their supreme leadership.
The first and foremost mission of our revolutionary armed forces with
the nuclear force as their backbone is to defend the leader at the cost
of their lives.
The DPRK legally stipulates that if the supreme dignity of the DPRK is
threatened, it must preemptively annihilate those countries and entities
that are directly or indirectly involved in it, by mobilizing all kinds
of strike means including the nuclear ones.
We will find out and smash all those who intend to do something against
our supreme leadership, wherever they are. This is an immutable and
indomitable will of the army and people of the DPRK.
We once again felt deep in our hearts from the reckless remarks of the
CIA director how just it was that we have achieved the great historic
cause of completing the nuclear force by overcoming all difficulties and
Should the U.S. dare to show even the slightest sign of attempt to
remove our supreme leadership, we will strike a merciless blow at the
heart of the U.S. with our powerful nuclear hammer, honed and hardened
The likes of Pompeo will bitterly experience the catastrophic and
miserable consequences caused by having dared to shake their little
fists at the supreme leadership, our eternal sun and everything of life
for our nation. -0
