US Accused of Escalating Arms Race

Pyongyang, July 15 (KCNA) -- Some days ago, the United States test-fired an interceptor missile in the Pacific.

The U.S. secretary of State held talks with the Polish foreign minister in Krakow on July 3 and concluded an agreement on establishing a new missile defense system in Poland.

Minju Joson Thursday observes in a signed commentary in this regard:

The U.S. is making a switchover in its plan to deploy the MD in eastern European countries while zealously stepping up the missile modernization despite the protest of the international community.

This is little short of a declaration of fresh missile race and arms race.

The U.S. moves to build missile shields are aimed to get other powers locked in the arms race and thus put them under excessive financial burdens till they collapse. They are also designed to plug as many countries as possible into the MD in a bid to make them depend on it militarily.

If the U.S. is allowed to steadily escalate such war moves as arms buildup and the establishment of the MD, the world will get bogged deeper in the arms race and the international situation remain more complicated, the commentary notes, and goes on:

It is by no means fortuitous that various countries of the world are opting for bolstering up the defence capabilities to cope with the increasing military threat of the U.S.

With no rhetoric can the U.S. cover up its true colors as the arch criminal escalating the arms race and the international tension and as the chieftain of aggression and war and the main disturber of world peace and security, concludes the commentary.
