Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

Fiction Floated by U.S. under Fire

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- Some days ago, a senior researcher of the U.S. Congressional Research Service in a report on the relations between the U.S. and south Korea published "information" to the effect that north Korea started to massively purchase equipment related to the highly enriched uranium after the influx of Hyundai fund in 1999 and the fund is instrumental in purchasing parts of weapons of mass destruction and materials for their production. A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee in his answer given to a question put by KCNA on March 29 in this regard said that it is an absurd plot not worth even a passing note and betrays ignorance and lack of sense about the DPRK.
    The DPRK's development of nukes is based on the powerful independent national economy from A to Z and it is a sheer lie to claim that it has built nuclear deterrent with a petty amount of money provided by others, he noted, and went on:
    The U.S. had floated similar misinformation in the past only to be rebuffed.
    As already revealed by what the U.S. did to launch the Iraqi war of aggression, it is its trite method to invade other countries on the basis of false information.
    The U.S.-floated fiction about the DPRK's purchase of nuclear-related equipment with the fund from Hyundai is politically motivated. It is nothing but a version of the bankrupt nonsensical story invented by the U.S. several years back to derail the inter-Korean economic cooperation and slander the historic Pyongyang meeting and the June 15 joint declaration.
    At that time, the U.S. induced the above-said research service to make public an "investigation report" to the effect that north Korea diverted the money paid for Mt. Kumgang tourism since 1998 to military purposes including the experiment on detonating device for nukes. Then it provided the report to the Grand National Party so that the south Korean right-wing conservatives kicked up a racket calling for a "special inspection of remittance to the north."
    However, the U.S. report turned out to be a sheer fabrication and was thrown into a waste basket after being ridiculed and rebuffed at home and abroad.
    The U.S. should have drawn a lesson from this if it had stood to reason even a bit.
    Nevertheless, it is still busy floating the worn-out fiction of the "diversion of Hyundai fund." Through this row the U.S. seeks to inject energy into its insipid nuclear racket, hamstring the inter-Korean economic cooperation and tighten the economic sanctions against the DPRK.
    However, no one will lend an ear to its propaganda.
    The U.S. should stop such folly, clearly understanding that its lies and deception, plots and fabrication can not work on others in this world but will more saliently reveal its despicable colors as a cesspool of evils, a chieftain of tyranny.
