Pyongyang, March 11 (KCNA) — The nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula has cropped up since the U.S. imperialists stockpiled huge amount of nuclear weapons in and around south Korea and persistently posed the threat of a preemptive nuclear attack upon the DPRK. The U.S. imperialists can never cover up their true colors as the arch criminal who gave rise to the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula.
Rodong Sinmun Saturday says this in a signed article.
It goes on:
Some time ago, south Korean KBS, quoting a confidential document of the Command of the U.S. Armed Forces in the Pacific, disclosed that the U.S. was about to use nuclear weapons against the DPRK in 1975.
Prior to this, it was disclosed that the U.S. forces in south Korea kept 280mm atomic guns for firing small-sized nuclear shells at the end of the 1950s. The recently revealed data clearly show who is chiefly to blame for the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula.
Right after the Korean war, the U.S. imperialists declared south Korea as a “theatre of vital operations” for the materialization of the strategy of domination over Asia and the rest of the world and politicized the conversion of south Korea into a nuclear base.
The nuclear weapons of the U.S. forces in south Korea are not “deterrent means” but weapons for an attack upon the DPRK.
The reckless U.S. nuclear war exercises every year are worsening the crisis of war in the Korean Peninsula.
The U.S. imperialists should open to the public overall the nuclear weapons they have shipped into south Korea and put them under international inspection, not raising a hue and cry over someone’s “nuclear issue”. They should withdraw all the nuclear weapons and their forces from south Korea. This is a fair solution to the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula and the best way for ensuring peace and security in Northeast Asia and the rest of the world.
