Hostile Forces' Brigandish Accusations against "Nuclear Issue"-KCNA

Hostile Forces' Brigandish Accusations against "Nuclear Issue"

Pyongyang, June 3 (KCNA) -- The United States and some other hostile forces, speaking at the NPT Review Conference, again took issue with the DPRK's withdrawal from the NPT, blustering that it failed to properly honor the provisions of the NPT and it should be pressurized to pay for its violation of the treaty and the like. They were, at the same time, busy spreading assertion that the DPRK should not be recognized as a nuclear weapons state and that it should dismantle its nuclear weapons and return to the treaty.

Rodong Sinmun Thursday observes in a signed commentary in this regard:

This cannot be construed otherwise than a deliberate act of misrepresenting the situation in disregard of the reality. Their ulterior intention is to brand the DPRK as "a nuclear criminal" in a bid to justify their reckless campaign against it and achieve their sinister purpose.

The commentary cites facts that their accusations against the DPRK over its pullout of the treaty and its access to nuclear weapons are nothing but nonsensical piffles ignoring the root cause of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula and the historical background against which it surfaced there.

It was the U.S. that compelled the DPRK to pull out of the treaty and have access to nuclear weapons, the commentary notes, and goes on:

As far as the violation of the treaty, nuclear arms race and nuclear proliferation are concerned, the U.S. is wholly to blame for them.

The U.S. is the world's biggest possessor of nuclear weapons and their delivery means.

It is the arch criminal disturbing the worldwide nuclear non-proliferation regime by applying its double standards to the nuclear issue.

The U.S. moves to stifle the DPRK have created such dangerous situation on the peninsula that a nuclear war may break out any moment.

If the peninsula is to be denuclearized, the U.S. should defuse its nuclear threat to the DPRK and roll back its hostile policy toward the latter. Herein lies the key to finding a solution to the issue.

The U.S. would be well advised to fulfil its commitments, bearing this deep in mind, urges the commentary.
