Pyongyang, April 21 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee released a statement Friday in connection with the fact that the situation on the Korean peninsula is getting serious with each passing day due to the U.S. ferocious military threat and nuclear blackmail.
The Trump administration, which had been examining the package options for the last two months, finally began to show reckless moves after adopting it as its DPRK policy to make “supreme pressure and intervention”, the statement said, adding:
After perpetrating sudden cruise missile attack on Syria, the U.S. described it as a “strong warning” to the DPRK and has introduced massive strategic assets into the Korean peninsula while crying out for independent military counteraction including “preemptive attack on the north”.
U.S. Vice-President Pence during his recent visit to south Korea talked big to dare threaten the DPRK, saying that the DPRK should not misjudge the U.S.’ will, the era of “strategic patience” was over and there is an urge to complete the program for nuclear and ballistic missile development.
The conservative group of south Korea, including puppet acting president Hwang Kyo An, spouted bellicose rubbish that “they would take unbearable punitive measure in case the north makes additional provocation” and “they will make the north change its strategic calculation”. They have gone desperate while talking about intensive large-scale joint exercises together with the U.S. nuclear carrier task force.
Saying the present situation proves that the U.S. and the puppet forces are a kingpin seriously threatening and harassing the peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and the region and that they are war fanatics obsessed with provocation and aggression, the spokesman clarified the following stand:
As a peace-loving socialist state, the DPRK values and loves peace more than anyone else but is neither afraid of war nor is going to avert it.
The army and people of the DPRK will not rule out any special option in order to defend peace on the Korean peninsula and the region.
The U.S. has to understand that it is not only the U.S. that is invested with option, and it should be serious in making the final option at a crucial moment decisive of the destiny of the American empire.
The army and people of the DPRK will bolster up the nuclear deterrence for justice in every way to foil the U.S. high-handed and arbitrary practices and thus more reliably defend the sovereignty of the country, the right to existence of the nation and the peace and security of the Korean peninsula and the region.
