Pyongyang, June 14 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in a commentary discloses the ulterior intention of the U.S. which is accelerating the development of carrier-based unmanned refueling plane and the building of new-generation nuclear carrier.
The modernization of military hardware for aggression by the U.S., which requires investment of astronomical funds, is for containing its rivals in the Asia-Pacific region by the unchallenged edge of power and attaining its ambition for world domination at any cost, the commentary says, and goes on:
Entering the 21st century, the U.S. shifted its strategic pivot from Europe and Atlantic Ocean to Asia-Pacific.
It is the U.S. intention to strategically contain its potential rivals by securing the carrier-based aircraft’s long-range striking capability through the development of unmanned refueling plane and holding the numerical and technical edge of nuclear-carrier task force.
The regional powers are putting spurs to flex their military muscles to cope with the U.S. ambition for hegemony.
Such U.S. military moves are escalating arms race and tension. So, it is unreasonable for the U.S. to describe the DPRK’s measures for bolstering up its nuclear deterrence as “threat” and “provocation”.
As a responsible nuclear power guarding the gateway to the Northeast Asian region, the DPRK will never remain a passive onlooker to the U.S. moves for escalating tension and aggression.
