Pyongyang, September 19 (KCNA) — The spokesman for the DPRK-Japan Friendship Association made public a statement today in connection with the fact that unpardonable rackets infringing upon the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK are continuously being kicked up in Japan over the launch of an artificial satellite in the DPRK.
The spokesman said:
Japanese authorities and statesmen are making a hue and cry over the DPRK’s launch of the satellite, taking “countermeasures.” worse still, unprecedented anti-DPRK smear campaigns are going on in Japan.
All facts show that Japanese authorities and statesmen are still enforcing a hostile policy toward the DPRK, not abandoning national chauvinism, and that they intend to step up Japan’s militarisation behind this campaign.
The spokesman further said:
The reckless racket in Japan over the DPRK’s launch of a satellite is an extension of its inveterate anti-DPRK policy. Accordingly, there is no one who will lend an ear to this racket.
Why are the Japanese authorities are tenaciously resorting to a hostile policy against the DPRK, taking it as its state policy?
The reason is that Japan has a prospective plan to embark upon the road of overseas expansion and thus become a “nuclear power” and “military power” corresponding to an “economic power”.
For the present, it has to railroad the “guidelines for Japan-U.S. defence cooperation” through the diet.
The Japanese authorities must clearly know that the more frantically they try to attain their brigandish aim with an anti-DPRK racket the more bitterly they will be denounced and cursed by the world people.
They must immediately stop the anti-DPRK smear campaign and the bestial outrage against Koreans in Japan.
We will continue to follow their movements and make them pay dearly for their hysteric rackets.
No matter how frenziedly the Japanese statesmen may slander us, “Kwangmyongsong No. 1,” the first artificial satellite of the DPRK, will continue to move round the earth.
