Pyongyang, February 27 (KCNA) — U.S. President Trump called governors and mayors to the White House some days ago where he said that the U.S. expands nuclear arsenal and modernizes nuclear weapons because other countries do so. He expressed his hope that those countries would abandon nuclear ambition, adding that if they suspend the development of nuclear weapons and their sophistication, the U.S. will also do in just two minutes.
A commentary of Rodong Sinmun Tuesday brands this as sophism distorting the essence of the event and its historical ground and phenomenon.
The U.S. was the first country to produce a nuclear weapon on this planet and it is the only nuclear criminal that used it, the commentary says, and goes on:
It is the U.S. which must abandon nuclear ambition before others.
If the U.S. opts for nuclear dismantlement, away from the wild ambition to dominate the world with absolute nuclear upper-hand, the denuclearization issue of the world will be easily settled.
Trump’s rhetoric that other countries have to suspend nuclear development and modernization first is a far-fetched assertion of a political idiot completely reversing the priority concerning the settlement of the issue.
The more the U.S. justifies its nuclear modernization through the hackneyed way of vociferating about the nuclear threat from outside, the more fully it will disclose its nature as a shameless nuclear criminal.
With no sleight of hand can the U.S. evade its responsibility as the world’s worst nuclear criminal state.
