Pyongyang, July 20 (KCNA) — The Mideast is now standing at the crossroads of war and peace. State-sponsored terrorism of Israel and the U.S. must be stopped to straighten this situation out.
Rodong Sinmun Thursday observes this in a signed commentary.
Israel’s barbaric air-raids on Palestine and Lebanon are brigandish state-sponsored terrorism as they wantonly violate the independent rights of the sovereign states, the commentary notes, and goes on:
Israel’s recent military aggression is a replica of U.S. horrendous state-sponsored terrorism perpetrated under the pretext of a “war on terrorism.” The barbaric military aggression perpetrated by Israel against Palestine and Lebanon created such a serious situation that a new Mid-east war may break out. The responsibility for this entirely rests with the U.S.
The U.S. seeks to shift the blame for it on to Syria, deliberately linking the current Mid-east situation to the country. This is aimed to brand anti-imperialist and independent Syria as a “criminal” and stifle it.
Quite just are the stand of Syria and its efforts to render positive support and encouragement to Palestine and Lebanon in their resistance against Israel’s military aggression and achieve Mideast peace.
The Korean people extend firm solidarity to Syria and bitterly condemn Israel for having perpetrated armed aggression against Palestine and Lebanon under the U.S. patronage and backing.
