Pyongyang, December 6 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun today in a signed commentary denounces the Japanese reactionaries for trying to present a “bill on setting up Defence Ministry” to the diet to elevate the status of Defence Agency to the “Ministry of Defence” and reorganize the “Self-Defence Forces” into armed forces.
The commentary says:
Japan enacts or rewrites any law if necessary for overseas invasion. Such laws as the “law on emergencies in surrounding areas” called war law, law on “Hinomaru and Kimigayo,” “law on wiretapping” and “emergency law” aimed to fascistize the society and establish a war system are all to serve the purpose of overseas aggression. The move to elevate the status of the Defence Agency to the ministry is also part of them.
Japan, a war criminal and defeated country, is making desperate efforts to become an “ordinary country.” The promotion of the status of the Defence Agency to the ministry would make a breakthrough in becoming an “ordinary country.”
Meanwhile, the Japanese reactionaries are escalating military exercises for overseas invasion in real earnest.
All this goes to prove that they are working round the clock to achieve at any cost the old dream of “Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere,” which they failed to realize in the past. They are well advised to drop this daydream.
