Pyongyang, April 11 (KCNA) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea will always live up to its commitment before the international community as a responsible nuclear weapons state, said the DPRK delegate when speaking at a meeting of the United Nations Disarmament Commission on April 4.
He said that the international community has made every possible effort for nuclear disarmament for decades but the total dismantlement of nuclear weapons aspired after by human beings still remains an outstanding task.
If the U.S. and other biggest nuclear weapons states take the lead in the nuclear disarmament it will have positive impact on those countries which had access to nukes recently, he said, adding that this will also help realize a world without nuclear weapons.
Citing facts to prove that the U.S. has steadily posed nuclear threats to the DPRK up to now since 1950, he stressed that the nuclear threat is not an abstract concept but a real threat to the Korean people.
The U.S. is to blame for the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula because it posed nuclear threat to the DPRK over half a century after introducing nuclear weapons to south Korea, he said. The structure of the nuclear confrontation in the peninsula represents the one of confrontation between the DPRK and the U.S., he stressed.
It is the consistent stand of the DPRK government to ensure peace and security and materialize the denuclearization of the peninsula through dialogue and negotiations, he concluded.
