Pyongyang, July 13 (KCNA) — It is a trite method of the U.S. imperialists to spy on other countries before launching a war of aggression and committing military intervention against them, says Rodong Sinmun Thursday in a signed article. It goes on:
They have employed diverse ways and means for obtaining secrets of other countries’ politics, economy, military and other fields to achieve their aggressive and reactionary purposes.
The U.S. has been wiretapping telephone messages of the leadership and high-ranking officials of other countries for years.
According to a recently declassified confidential document of the U.S., it began setting up wiretapping network targeting on the Soviet Union right after the Second World War. After setting up wiretapping centers with maximum capacity in Norway and Canada, the U.S. wiretapped telephone messages exchanged between Soviet vessels sailing across the Arctic Ocean. U.S. spy satellites kept watching Moscow and its spies installed wiretapping devices even inside the Kremlin Palace which housed the headquarters of the Soviet Union.
Such wiretapping has become all the more undisguised since the demise of the Cold War era.
The U.S. has attached particular importance to eavesdropping telephone messages and talks of the leadership and VIPs of other countries.
It has been keen on gathering information through hi-tech devices.
The U.S. imperialists are watching waters of the Asia-Pacific with the help of supersonic detectors as part of their espionage operations based on the latest science and technology.
During the Cold War the U.S. developed a supersonic detector to watch submarines in the Asia-Pacific under the pretext of “coping with threat” from the Soviet Union.
Recently it put waters through which Chinese fleets sail to and from the Pacific under its watch and has been hell-bent on hi-tech espionage against them.
The U.S. imperialists are also using seabed optical fiber cables for wiretapping and espionage of other forms in the Asia-Pacific.
The U.S. installed new type supersonic detectors in the Asia-Pacific to intensify its spy operation in the region.
It set up a new office specializing in espionage against the DPRK in the CIA and keeps WC-135W weather research craft in the air above the East Sea of Korea to intensify its espionage. It is mobilizing various types of reconnaissance planes to spy on the DPRK. All this is a prelude to a new Korean war.
