Pyongyang, November 10 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun today in a signed article stresses the weighty importance of ensuring the peace on the Korean peninsula in the efforts to preserve the world peace.
The article notes that peace on the Korean peninsula presents itself as a very important issue in the preservation of the world peace because a “war on the Korean peninsula” may lead to a global war.
Attributing this to the important strategic position of the Korean peninsula, the article recalls that the Korean peninsula, which is a main gate of East Asia and lies among the major powers, has been a theatre of fierce confrontation among powers historically.
If a war breaks out in this region, the powers can not but join in the war in view of their strategic interests and their security needs.
Now that the Korean peninsula is exposed to the greatest danger of war in the world, to ensure peace there is the most important task for the world peace.
Neither system nor agreement exists on the Korean peninsula to prevent a war. The Armistice Agreement signed between the DPRK and the United States has become no more than a waste paper due to the betrayal of the United States.
The United States is now working hard to take a grip over the Korean peninsula to realize its strategy for world supremacy.
The Korean peninsula has become the first target of attack by the Japanese reactionaries who leave no stone unturned to achieve its wild design for overseas invasion.
Japan is fully ready to invade the Korean peninsula.
The South Korean ruling quarters are watching for a chance to attack the north to prolong their remaining days, zealously following the war policy of the U.S.
The ever closer military tie-up among the United States, Japan and the South Korean ruling quarters to provoke a new war on the Korean peninsula compels the DPRK to further increase its self-reliant defence power.
But for strong self-reliant defence power the DPRK would not have been able to defend its sovereignty and dignity.
The world peace can be ensured only by our gun of justice.
