Pyongyang, June 22 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA on June 22, concerning the nuclear strategic bombers the U.S. flied again over the Korean peninsula:
On June 20, the U.S. introduced two B-1B nuclear strategic bombers into the airspace of south Korea to conduct simulation bombing exercises and is openly prattling that it would send strategic bombers to the Korean peninsula more than once every month.
This reckless military action plainly discloses once again the true nature of the U.S. as the main culprit who destroys regional peace and stability and brings about arms race.
The U.S. continues to escalate the tense situation on the Korean peninsula and raises the level of nuclear threat and blackmail with each passing day. This reality substantiates the justness of the DPRK’s measures for strengthening the nuclear deterrent.
The U.S. cannot dare to frighten the DPRK with any military threat and blackmail.
The U.S. should bear in mind that its military pressure will instead serve as a propellant to push the DPRK to increasing the nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities.
The more the U.S. adheres to the reckless military gamble, the further the DPRK will accelerate at an extraordinarily fast speed the advancement of the nuclear forces with a view to safeguarding peace and stability of the Korean peninsula, the region and the world.
