Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) — The Japanese ultra-right conservative forces are contemplating setting up two working departments for sanctions against the DPRK under the pretext of the “abduction issue” and presenting a “bill on sanctions against north Korea” to its Diet session.
Rodong Sinmun Tuesday observes in a signed commentary in this regard: It is an invariable intention of the Japanese ultra-right conservatives to isolate and stifle the DPRK.
They have long seriously ruffled the DPRK’s feathers by crying out for pressure upon it over the “abduction issue” and the like.
To cite just a few examples, they released a statement to put sanctions upon the DPRK while setting out a five-phased “plan for economic sanctions against north Korea”. They have kicked off a row after publishing and distributing even booklets on the “abduction issue”.
The above-said racket kicked off by them against such backdrop goes to clearly prove that their hostile moves against the DPRK have gone to extremes.
This is nothing but an escalation of the anti-DPRK reckless hostile moves stepped up by the Japanese ultra-right conservatives in collusion with the U.S., an indication of their frantic pursuance of its line.
The DPRK has clarified more than once that it will regard any sanctions against it as a declaration of war and take a corresponding measure for self-defence.
The Korean people regard the country’s sovereignty as their life and soul and will never allow anyone to infringe upon it even a bit.
Japan would be well advised to bear in mind that the above-said behavior of Japan will only lead to its self-destruction.
