U.S. Termed Chief Culprit of New Arms Race -KCNA

U.S. Termed Chief Culprit of New Arms Race

Pyongyang, June 27 (KCNA) -- The U.S. frequently claims that it is "interested" in global peace and stability, but its deeds do not agree with such assertion, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a bylined commentary.

This is evidenced by the fact that the U.S. is pushing forward the moves to build the missile defense system and modernize nuclear weapons contrary to world peace and stability, the news analyst says, and goes on:

Recently the director of the U.S. CIA said that the MD system to be built by the U.S. should be reinforced in terms of quality and quantity, asserting that this would not affect the maintenance of strategic stability. The U.S. announced a plan to invest 4 billion dollars in updating nuclear bombs of B-61 type as a scheme to modernize old nuclear bombs deployed in European countries.

World peace and stability are incompatible with military reinforcement and modernization of war equipment.

What the U.S. seeks in modernizing war equipment is to hold absolute military upper-hand in the international arena and expand the sphere of its domination worldwide on its basis.

Such anti-peace moves will fan up worldwide arms race and military confrontation and screw up the international situation.

With no deceptive tricks can the U.S. conceal its true colors as the chief culprit in wrecking global peace and stability and sparking off a new arms race.

The U.S. should stop a poor drama and discontinue its anti-peace action at once.
