No One Is Entitled to Find Fault with DPRK’s Nuclear Deterrent: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, June 3 (KCNA) — There are recently many claims in the international arena terming the U.S. and its vassal forces’ anti-DPRK sanctions unjust.

Pablo Jofre Leal, a Chilean journalist, writer and analyst who is a professor on international relations at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, in a commentary posted on a website said that those who were scathingly faulting the missile test-fire of the DPRK, specifically the United Nations and the EU, are keeping mum about the U.S. missile test-launch and deployment of THAAD in south Korea.
The commentary went on:
Then, the question arises as to whether the majority of world media and the international community should overlook this double-standard and two-faced act or not.
Now the world has turned into the one where hypocrisy, lies and frauds prevail, only to offer more authority to a few countries including the U.S.
What is important above all to achieve detente on the Korean peninsula is to get rid of such prejudiced, double-standard and unfair viewpoint and deed that the U.S. and some other countries are allowed to conduct nuclear tests and missile test-launches but such country as the DPRK should become a target of international sanctions and blockade.
In the international relations a fair order should be established to reject big-power chauvinist and short-sighted behavior based on national egoism, oppose acts of aggression, respect cooperation and the right to self-determination and put an end to hegemony.
A former official of the U.S. Department of State asserted in an interview on May 19 that the Trump administration, which set “maximum pressure and engagement” as its new DPRK policy, should necessarily drop the conception of exceedingly sticking to sanctions.
He went on:
The U.S. is accustomed to selecting sanctions as its easiest countermeasure for dealing with the nuclear issue of north Korea but such sanctions don’t work on it.
It is important for it to remind itself of the lesson that its export embargo on Japan in 1941 pushed Japan to attack its base in the Pearl Harbor.
Now is the time for the U.S. and other relevant countries to get their breath back, lower the degree of sanctions and get themselves ready to opt for engagement with north Korea.
A Russian military expert Vladimir Khrustalyov, asserting that every one is seeking to “gloss over”, failing to urge nuclear-armed Pakistan and India to dismantle the nukes, said the DPRK would not sincerely accept the demand for dismantlement of its nukes in that atmosphere.
As seen above, the U.S. absurdly paints a black picture of the just steps taken by the DPRK to defend its sovereignty, running amuck to stamp it out with all false accusations, but connives at its allies’ threat-representative deeds.
Typically, Israel could succeed in developing nukes in 1969 with the exclusive backing of the U.S. The U.S. also secretly sold 1,500 equipment for producing nukes to Israel in the 1980s. And in the 1990s it promised to help Israel tackle the international pressure on its nuclear weaponization.
Such an ill logic that the U.S. and its allies’ missile launches are “conducive” to preserving peace and security but the DPRK’s missile test-fire is a “provocation” that escalates tensions doesn’t make sense.
No one is entitled to find fault with the DPRK’s exercise of just rights to self-defence to protect the sovereignty and vital rights.
