U.S. Dangerous Military Moves in Asia-Pacific under Fire

    Pyongyang, April 26 (KCNA) -- The U.S., alleging that the DPRK's increase of its military capacity for self-defence is a "military threat" and a "factor of causing substantial instability", is escalating military tension in and around the Korean Peninsula under the signboard of "countering". Minju Joson Wednesday says this in a signed commentary.
    Lurking behind the U.S. act of pulling up the DPRK over its legitimate right and exercise of its full-fledged sovereignty is a sinister purpose, the commentary says, and goes on:
    An atmosphere of reconciliation and cooperation has been provided between the north and the south of Korea thanks to the stand and principled efforts of the peace-loving DPRK.
    The U.S. is displeased with this from the viewpoint of establishing its right of domination in Asia-Pacific.
    The U.S. forces' permanent presence in the region is necessary for the establishment of the right of domination and to this end the U.S. needs a legitimate justification. To meet this military and strategic requirement it has constantly bolstered up its military capacity against the DPRK, letting loose a whole gamut of invectives. Recently it has raised the theory of "threat from China" along with the "threat from north Korea" in a bid to justify its attempt to have hegemony in Asia-Pacific. Under the instable situation caused by the U.S. in the region the DPRK is feeling the urgent need to increase deterrent for self-defence.
    The DPRK will make all possible efforts to increase its defence capacity to safeguard the sovereignty and security and defend regional peace and stability. The U.S. had better ponder over the grave consequences to be entailed by its reckless military provocation in and around the Korean Peninsula and stop its reckless military actions at once.
