Pyongyang, October 20 (KCNA) — The DPRK’s nuclear weapons are the precious fruition borne out by the Korean people through the bloody struggle to defend the destiny and sovereignty of the country from the protracted nuclear threat from the U.S. imperialists, says Rodong Sinmun in an article on Friday.
The article continues:
The nuclear issue was spawned on the Korean peninsula and the danger of a nuclear war has steadily escalated since then due to the sinister ambition of the U.S. to occupy the northern part of Korea and put Northeast Asia under its control for the realization of the world domination strategy.
The Workers’ Party of Korea put forward a fresh strategic line of simultaneously pushing forward with the economic construction and the building of a nuclear force as required by the Korean revolution and the prevailing situation.
Witnessing the tragic situation in which strong-arm and arbitrary practices and brigandish logic of strength by imperialism are rampant in the international arena, the Korean people more keenly feel the validity and immutable truth of the new line.
The U.S. imperialists are terming the DPRK’s nuclear weapons as a “threat to the world peace”.
According to the Asia-Pacific domination strategy, the U.S. is working hard to put Northeast Asia under its control and to dominate the whole of the Korean peninsula before anything else.
It is the strategic calculation of the U.S. that the control of the whole of the peninsula makes it possible for the U.S. to contain and pressurize China and Russia and to make a decisive breakthrough for realizing the ambition for world domination.
The U.S. is possessed of the nukes enough to plunge the world into a nuclear disaster several times. It is the Korean peninsula where the U.S. Asia-Pacific domination strategy and the strategic interests of other nuclear powers are intertwined.
However, the DPRK’s powerful nuclear deterrent averted a nuclear war several times under the touch-and-go situations in which a nuclear war might break out in the peninsula.
So no one has the right to find fault with DPRK’s steps to rapidly bolster up the nuclear force in order to keep the practical equilibrium of forces with the U.S.
