KCNA Snubs Call for DPRK's Dismantlement of Nukes

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, February 19 (KCNA) -- Piffles that "economic reward" will be given to the DPRK if it dismantles its nuclear weapons are heard from countries around the Korean Peninsula these days.

Some of them have gone the lengths of talking nonsense that it is necessary to stop giving such rewards as providing foodstuff, fuel, loan, etc., if the DPRK persistently refuses to dismantle its nuclear weapons and they "will not use money for persuading it into returning to the six-party talks."

In a word, their utterances mean giving sort of "economic reward" to the DPRK in return for the dismantlement of its nukes.

This is nothing but sophism that can be let loose only by the worst fools in the world who do not know how things are going there.

The DPRK had access to the nuclear deterrent by spending a stupendous amount of money while tightening belt and weathering out all sorts of difficulties and ordeals. This was a measure for self-defence to cope with the U.S. nuclear threat. This is aimed neither to threaten others nor to get any "economic benefit" or reward.

Those who talked the above-said nonsense are sadly mistaken if they think the DPRK may do such a stupid thing as dismantling its nukes in anticipation of "economic reward" from outsiders.

The DPRK has settled everything on its own and with its wisdom, not depending on others. This is the historic review of its socialist construction.

It is only those stupid that can think the DPRK may barter its nuclear deterrent for a petty amount of money in "economic aid."

Their assumption is so nonsensical that it is hard to tell whether their foolish behavior was prompted by their ignorance of the reason why the DPRK is boosting its nuclear deterrent or they were making far-fetched assertion, feigning ignorance of it.

The DPRK was compelled to have access to the nuclear deterrent for self-defence to protect the supreme interests and security of the country from the U.S. increasing nuclear threat.

It was none other than the U.S. that pushed the DPRK to acquiring nuclear deterrent and it is, therefore, wholly to blame for the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.

It is the brigandish logic for the U.S., the arch criminal posing a nuclear threat to the DPRK, to demand it dismantle its nuclear weapons.

The DPRK's dismantlement of its nuclear weapons can never happen even if the earth is broken to pieces unless the hostile policy towards the DPRK is rolled back and the nuclear threat to it removed.

This is the consistent independent stand and principle of the DPRK.

The hostile forces including the U.S. are now working hard to force the DPRK to disarm itself and pursuing extreme confrontation with it.

They are under an increasing pressure from their own countries and other parts of the world to withdraw the nuclear weapons deployed by them there. Much upset by this development, the U.S. is becoming vociferous about the DPRK's nuclear activity in a bid to use it as a pretext for steadily bolstering up its nuclear weapons.

All facts go to prove that the master key to truly breaking the deadlock in the process to settle the nuclear issue on the peninsula lies in the U.S. drop of its hostile policy towards the DPRK.

The DPRK's nuclear deterrent for self-defence will remain as ever and grow more powerful to protect the sovereignty and dignity of the nation as long as the U.S. nuclear threat and hostile policy persist.

Those who talk about "economic reward" to the DPRK in return for the dismantlement of its nuclear weapons would be well advised to awake from their daydream.
