U.S.-S. Korea Cooperation in Nuke Development Assailed

Pyongyang, April 1 (KCNA) -- The Korean Anti-Nuke Peace Committee issued a statement Saturday in connection with the disclosure of the whole story about the development of a nuclear-powered submarine in south Korea that created a big worldwide furor. The major objective of this development is to round off the preparations for a war of aggression against the DPRK with the U.S. and, furthermore, pave the way for nuclear weaponization, the statement notes, and continues:
Not content with reducing south Korea to a nuclear arsenal of the U.S. targeted against their fellow countrymen already decades ago, the south Korean warlike forces have opted for an independent nuclear weaponization. This is a very dangerous development and an unpardonable act of treachery.
The south Korean authorities' moves to go nuclear cannot but be a serious development as they gravely threaten peace on the Korean Peninsula, the destiny of the nation and the security in Northeast Asia.
What merits a serious attention is that the U.S. has zealously backed and defended south Korea's moves for nuclear weaponization although it has persistently pulled up the DPRK over its nuclear issue.
The recently disclosed fact about south Korea's development of a nuclear-powered submarine once again brings to light the U.S. wicked habit of seeking an axe to grind and its brazenfaced and shameless double-dealing tactics of judging everything on the basis of its view on value to meet its own interests for aggression. The fact that the U.S. is cooperating with the south Korean authorities in the development of nukes against the DPRK by instigating them more urgently requires it to bolster up its nuclear deterrent to defend the dignity, sovereignty and the security of the nation and intensify its nuclear activities for self-defence.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities will be held wholly responsible for the grave consequences to be entailed by their reckless and dangerous cooperation in the nuke development.
