Pyongyang, June 3 (KCNA) — The United States and its allies are floating an erroneous view on the issue of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
They claim that the DPRK’s access to nukes is incompatible with security and north Korea’s abandonment of its nuclear program would lead to the denuclearization of the peninsula in a bid to create impression that north Korea reneged on its commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
It is a gross distortion of the true nature of the denuclearization of the peninsula for the U.S. to spread misinformation that the DPRK’s dismantlement of its nuclear weapons would lead to the denuclearization, while shelving a nuclear threat posed by itself.
This is nothing but a shameless and sinister intention to shirk off its responsibility for the failure to save the six-party talks from their present stalemate and internationalize the DPRK’s nuclear issue.
The DPRK is universally known to have initiated the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and exerted efforts for its materialization from its principled stand to defend the sovereignty of the country and contribute to peace and security in Asia and other parts of the world.
Quite contrary to this, the U.S. spawned the present nuclear stand-off on the peninsula.
It shipped more than 1,000 nuclear weapons into south Korea for the past scores of years, posing constant threat to the DPRK, which was a non-nuclear state, and torpedoing the denuclearization process on the peninsula.
A particular mention should be made of the fact that the present U.S. administration adopted it as a state policy to mount even a preemptive nuclear attack on the DPRK, thus compelling it to have access to nuclear weapons to safeguard its own system and existence.
The DPRK’s access to nukes was, to all intents and purposes, a legitimate measure to avert a war on the peninsula and protect peace and security in the region from the U.S. growing nuclear threat.
If the issue of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula is to be properly discussed, it is necessary to focus on removing U.S. nuclear threat, the root cause that compelled the DPRK to have access to nukes, and establishing the relations of confidence between the DPRK and the countries concerned.
This would be a proper order whereby to settle the nuclear issue in the perfect sense.
The U.S. assertion that north Korea’s dismantlement of its nukes alone would lead to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is so absurd that it will convince no one.
