Pyongyang, June 11 (KCNA) — The south Korean authorities are following the outsiders’ sanctions against the DPRK, being displeased with the latter’s just measures for bolstering up its military capability for self-defence. Of late they supported the U.S. in independently releasing the list of additional targets of sanctions against the DPRK and the UN Security Council in fabricating its anti-DPRK “sanctions resolution” 2356.
Commenting on this, Rodong Sinmun Sunday says this is an unpardonable provocation escalating the distrust and conflict between the north and the south as they actively joined the U.S. and its vassal force’s criminal moves to block the DPRK’s bolstering up of its nuclear force and realize their ambition to stifle and pressurize it.
The commentary notes:
The DPRK’s series of measures for bolstering up its nuclear deterrence in succession are entirely just as they are those for disabling and shattering the military moves of the U.S. hell-bent on a nuclear war against the DPRK by introducing nuclear strategic assets into south Korea and its vicinity and for defending peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and in the region.
However, the south Korean authorities are trying hard to create a good impression that they are interested in the improvement of the north-south relations through allowance of some non-governmental exchanges while crying that they will make efforts for dialogue with the north and ratcheting up pressure upon it simultaneously to make it dismantle its nukes. Meanwhile, they are siding with the foreign forces that are resorting to all sorts of means and methods to intensify sanctions against the DPRK.
The south Korean authorities would be well advised to understand that their acts joining with outsiders’ anti-DPRK sanctions and going against the trend of the times are as foolish as those losing the support of the people and doing harm to them by themselves.
