U.S. Blasted for Its Slander against DPRK

    Pyongyang, March 28 (KCNA) -- The United States on March 16 in a "national security strategy report" designated again the DPRK as an "outpost of tyranny". This is an unpardonable insult, sinister slander and provocation to the dignified DPRK. Minju Joson today observes this in a signed commentary. It says: As soon as it took office, the Bush administration newly adopted its nuclear strategy focused on the DPRK and started posing undisguised threat of nuclear attack against the DPRK.
    Under such situation where the U.S.-threatened preemptive nuclear attack was impending in actuality, the DPRK had no other option but to make a bold decision to build nuclear armed forces for self-defence.
    The six-party talks, hailed by countries concerned and other countries as the most suitable way for settling the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula, could be provided thanks to the DPRK's initiative step. The adoption of the September 19, 2005, joint statement, too, was attributable to its principled and sincere pursuit and efforts. At the crucial moment when both sides were to move in actuality toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, the United States took financial sanctions against the DPRK under such unreasonable pretexts as "counterfeit notes" and "money laundry". Meanwhile, it is playing cheap tricks to shift the blame for the deadlocked six-party talks on to the DPRK.
    The U.S. calculates that its aims will be attained if it throttles the DPRK, binding it hand and foot. But, it is the DPRK's traditional way of struggle to make head-on breakthrough. The U.S. must be well aware of what it means.
