Pyongyang, June 16 (KCNA) — At the recent Asia Security Conference, Japanese Defense Minister Inada let out a litany of rigmaroles about the DPRK’s successes in developing nukes and rockets, claiming their “threats” to the region and other parts of the world have entered a new phase. And he said Japan supports the U.S. stand of showing in words and deeds that all options are on the table, and called for ratcheting up pressure on the DPRK through the complete, thorough and sustained implementation of the UNSC’s “resolutions” by united efforts.
Rodong Sinmun Friday in a commentary lays bare the crafty and sinister intention of the Japanese reactionaries that labeled the DPRK’s rocket test-fires as “threat” and “provocation” and “incited stronger pressure by the international community”.
This is aimed to find a pretext to calm down strong concern and opposition at home and abroad on Japan’s militarization and justify arms buildup and military overseas expansion and thus opt to take the road of realizing its ambition for reinvasion of Asia, the commentary says, adding:
In fact, the Japanese reactionaries have made legal, spiritual and military preparations for reinvasion in real earnest under the pretext of the DPRK’s “nuclear and missile threat”.
It is just like a guilty party filing the suit first for Japan to take issue with the DPRK’s rocket test-fire, legitimate step for self-defense, as “threat”.
It is a hard fact that the DPRK has already become a nuclear power in the East and leading rocket power in Asia.
If the Japanese reactionaries talk about the DPRK’s “threat”, oblivious of the said-fact, and steadily resort to hostile moves against the latter, such action would result in precipitating their own destruction.
