Pyongyang, June 27 (KCNA) — The U.S. holds 48 percent of a total amount of world military spending 1,118 billion U.S. dollars, according to data on world military spending made public by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute in Sweden some time ago. The bulk of it is being spent for the modernization of nukes and the militarization of space.
Rodong Sinmun says this Tuesday in a signed commentary.
The Bush group is now hell bent on stepping up the modernization of nukes under the pretext of “war on terrorism”, sparking off a new nuclear arms race and bringing the danger of a thermonuclear war, which is a crime intended to inflict nuclear holocaust upon humankind, the commentary says, and goes on:
The U.S. is the world’s biggest possessor of nukes and it is not exposed to any nuclear threat. The U.S. moves for the modernization of nukes are aimed to make a preemptive nuclear attack on other countries and materialize its wild ambition for world supremacy.
A new nuclear arms race is being triggered by the U.S. in the international arena.
The amount of world military spending is reaching an astronomical figure and it is on the increase every year. This is mainly ascribable to the U.S. moves for a nuclear war, a space war. The U.S. is the principal criminal of the present nuclear arms race, the very one who harasses world peace and security.
The U.S. should give up its wild ambition for nukes, mindful that its nuke modernization and space militarization will be a grave crime of disturbing world peace and security.
