Japan's Moves for Space Espionage under Fire


    Pyongyang, December 6 (KCNA) -- A Japanese institution for research and development of space flight recently failed in the launching of prototype rocket "H-2A" No. 6 carrying two spy satellites of the government. This was aimed to put into orbit military spy satellites with a mission to gather information about the DPRK and carry out Japan's plan to emerge a military power. Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed commentary.
    When Japan had already put two spy satellites into orbit, the DPRK warned that it was a hostile act against the DPRK and a serious threat to it.
    The Japanese reactionaries claimed that Japan's launch of spy satellites was aimed to cope with north Korea's "missile threat".
    Japan is keen on space espionage not because of the DPRK's "missile threat".
    The successive Japanese governments have pursued a hostile policy toward the DPRK.
    Japan has stepped up the joint research into missile defense technology with the United States under the pretext of the DPRK's "missile threat". It is working hard to introduce the U.S. anti-ballistic missile system on the plea of "filling the vacuum" till missiles have been deployed for action.
    Japan's hostile policy toward the DPRK and its moves to become a military power would not only render the situation on the Korean peninsula more complicated but spark a new arms race in Northeast Asia.
    Japan will have to pay dearly for going reckless, pursuant to the U.S. hostile policy to stifle the DPRK, oblivious of its actual position, warns the commentary
