Application of Double-standards to Nuclear Issue Cannot Be Allowed

    Pyongyang, March 30 (KCNA) -- The U.S. should not apply its unreasonable double-standards to the nuclear issue but dismantle its nuclear weapons first of all and stop its moves to threaten other countries with nuclear weapons and mount a preemptive attack, says Rodong Sinmun Thursday in a signed article. The article castigates the U.S. for applying unreasonable double-standards to the nuclear issue, while pursuing its aggressive and hegemonic nuclear politics turning a deaf ear to the voices of humankind demanding total dismantlement of nukes. It is the consistent military policy and strategic target of the U.S. imperialists to bolster up nuclear forces and hold nuclear supremacy, the article says, and goes on: The U.S. imperialists, considering nukes as almighty means for establishing world domination order, are threatening other countries with them and bringing in dark clouds of a nuclear war.
    The U.S. application of double-standards to the nuclear issue finds its expression in conniving, patronizing and assisting its allies' development and production of nuclear weapons while kicking up a row of pressure on those countries whose ideology and system are different from its own over the "nuclear issue". The U.S. is applying double-standards to the nuclear issue according to state relations with itself and its strategic interests.
    The U.S. double-dealing attitude in the nuclear issue is a revelation of its unilateralism and highhandedness. Its unreasonable behavior weakens the binding force of the NPT and drives the world to a nuclear arms race. Its nuclear highhandedness reduces the NPT to a good-for-nothing and eggs nuclear-free countries to have nuclear means.
    The U.S. is talking about "non-proliferation" while stepping up nuclear arms buildup and modernization and openly pursuing a nuclear war because it has a sinister intension to make anti-imperialist and independent countries victims of its nuclear hard-line policy.
    The U.S. anti-DPRK campaign over the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula is a typical example of its application of double-standards to the nuclear issue. It is the unfair application of double-standards that the U.S. is scheming to completely check the peaceful nuclear activities of the DPRK, while announcing that it will provide nuclear technique and fuel to some countries outside the NPT.
