Pyongyang, November 1 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun today in a signed commentary slams senior U.S. officials for launching an anti-DPRK diatribe, while proposing to provide “aid” to Russia in the establishment of an anti-missile radar now under way in Irkutsk, Russia.
They claimed that the missile and nuclear development of the DPRK poses a “threat” to the U.S. as well as to Russia, so that their effort for “missile defence” is not against Russia, but against the “threat” from the DPRK.
Noting that their assertion is part of their despicable scheme to inveigle another country in the campaign against the DPRK under the absurd pretext of its “missile threat,” the commentary goes on:
The U.S. is frantically pushing the move to establish the “missile defence” system. This is a gross violation of the Russia-U.S. “anti-ballistic missile treaty” and a declaration of new arms race, missile race. It is beyond doubt that this will result in adding a new powerful missile system to the U.S. nuclear means in East Asian countries surrounding the Korean peninsula to seriously upset the balance of strategic arms, build a complex structure of confrontation and breed a serious danger of war.
As many countries are taking a cautious approach toward this criminal move, the U.S. is raising a hue and cry over the “missile threat” from the DPRK in a bid to calm down the public censure.
The U.S. is going to establish the “missile defence” system at any cost by modifying the “anti-ballistic missile treaty” through a bargaining with Russia.
The U.S. has an axe to grind under the hypocritical signboard. With nothing can the U.S. conceal its criminal nature.
