Pyongyang, July 26 (KCNA) — The Japanese authorities vied with each other to cry out for a “preemptive attack” on the DPRK. This is a very serious development and a war outcry little short of a very provocative declaration of war.
Rodong Sinmun Wednesday observes this in a signed commentary.
The DPRK cannot but take a particularly serious note of the Japanese authorities’ call for a “preemptive attack” upon it, the commentary warns, and goes on:
Their trumpeting about the theory of “preemptive attack” in chorus clearly indicates that Japan’s scenario to stage a comeback to Korea has entered the phase of its implementation.
It is as clear as noonday that their call for “preemptive attack” on the DPRK will escalate the stand-off between the DPRK and Japan and coil up the tensions in Northeast Asia. It is not fortuitous that their reckless remarks about “preemptive attack” touched off strong apprehension and criticism among the neighboring countries of Japan including China and even in Japan. They dismissed them as “very irresponsible ones as they will only escalate tensions in Northeast Asia,” “very unreasonable outbursts” and “a grave violation of the Constitution as they are fraught with the danger of reviving the situation before the Second World War.”
If Japan launches reinvasion with preemptive strikes, defying warnings and demands of the public at home and abroad, it will only meet its self-destruction.
The Japanese reactionaries would be well advised not to go reckless like a newborn puppy which knows no fear of a tiger.
