Pyongyang, June 26 (KCNA) — The Japanese reactionaries’ adoption of “North Korean Sanctions Law” is a serious political provocation to the DPRK and the revelation of their extreme hostile policy toward it, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed commentary.
The DPRK is not surprised at all by the adoption of such ridiculous “law” aimed to justify the application of sanctions against it, pursuant to the U.S. human rights offensive against Pyongyang, the commentary notes, and goes on:
We’d like to serve a strong warning to the Japanese reactionaries over their adoption of the “law”.
Such campaign launched by the Japanese reactionaries over the oft-repeated issue of abduction is nothing but a reckless and rash act of pushing the DPRK-Japan relations to the lowest ebb, a clear indication that they are going indiscreet, obsessed with bitterness toward the DPRK.
The abduction issue had long been settled and we, therefore, do not feel the need to talk about it any more. The Japanese reactionaries must be political dwarfs who are so naive that they do not properly understand yet who their opponent is.
Nothing is more reckless and despicable than their attempt to escalate the above-said anti-DPRK human rights offensive in pursuance of the U.S. policy.
It is as clear as noonday that such row will touch off anti-Japanese sentiment among the Koreans and reinforce their will to react to the offensive with the toughest stand.
The Japanese reactionaries will be held fully accountable for all the consequences to be entailed by their extreme political provocation against the DPRK.
Japan had better pay heed to the warning and stop such a foolish act as pricking its own eyes.
