Pyongyang, November 12 (KCNA) — The U.S. hostile policy towards the DPRK remains unchanged and it will never make a present of peace to us, declares Rodong Sinmun today in a signed article.
The article says:
The U.S. is talking about the improvement of relations with the DPRK and peace on the Korean peninsula before us, but is whetting the sword for aggression behind the scene. This is evidenced by the fact that the U.S. is escalating its military moves against the DPRK, refusing to pull back its forces from South Korea.
The U.S. is clamoring about peace, having deployed huge aggressor forces in South Korea and staged madcap war exercises targeted against the north. This is an ostrich policy.
The U.S. is opposed to the establishment of peace mechanism, one of the important conditions for defusing tensions and ensuring peace on the Korean peninsula.
The Armistice Agreement provides for temporary cease-fire only, not lasting peace. It should be replaced by new peace mechanism if war is to be averted and lasting peace ensured on the Korean peninsula.
A signatory to the Korean armistice agreement, the U.S. can never flee from its responsibility for the signing of a peace agreement.
Pointing to the U.S. effort to justify its aggressive policy towards the DPRK on the absurd pretext of “military threat” from it, the article goes on:
The U.S. is expanding the sphere of its domination, escalating its war of aggression against anti-imperialist, independent countries. The DPRK is made the next target of its aggression.
If the U.S. continues to pursue its policy to stifle the DPRK, going against the trend of the times, it will meet only defeat and death in face of our retaliation.
