Pyongyang, April 13 (KCNA) — Those countries interested in the issue of security in Northeast Asia and linked to the continent should meet to discuss the issue of security and strive hard to exclude the U.S. and Japan from the discussion.
Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says this in a signed commentary.
The U.S. is egging Japan on to emerge a military and political power in a bid to pit Asians against themselves and the Japanese reactionaries have become evermore undisguised in their moves to seize the territories of other countries and distort the history, the commentary says, and goes on:
While the U.S. is engrossed in the Iraqi issue and the Mideast issue, China is exercising ever-increasing influence over Asia, the DPRK declared its access to nuclear weapons and south Korea has become dissonant with the U.S. over the “issue of security.” Under this situation the U.S. considers it as a way out to make Northeast Asian countries antagonize and fight with each other.
It is necessary to see through the aggressive nature of the U.S. so as to properly settle the issue of regional security. For this, it is very important for the countries interested in the issue and linked to the continent to meet to discuss the issue of regional security. They are deeply interested in this security and have potentials and capacity to be responsible for their regional peace and security.
It is also necessary to exclude the U.S. and Japan from the debate on the issue of regional security.
As the U.S. is across the ocean and Japan is away from the continent, they have no interest in the peace and security of Northeast Asia nor can they own any responsibility for them.
Both the U.S. and Japan have an ax to grind over the issue of security unlike those countries in Northeast Asia.
It is possible to ensure security in Northeast Asia only when all the aggressor forces are withdrawn from this region.
Needless to say, it is the basic way of removing the danger of war increasing in Northeast Asia and ensuring regional security to force the U.S. to pull all its war means out of it and check Japan’s moves for militarism.
