UNSC Urged to Properly Know about Truth of "Cheonan" Case

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

Pyongyang, June 21 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet group recently referred the "results of the investigation" into the case of warship "Cheonan" sinking unilaterally worked out to serve its purpose to the UNSC at last, turning down the DPRK's just proposal for dispatching an inspection group of its National Defence Commission to the spot of south Korea.

Rodong Sinmun Monday observes in a signed commentary in this regard:

Various data and objective reality are bringing to light as the days go by the fact that the "Cheonan" case is a conspiratorial farce orchestrated by its fabricators to achieve a sinister aim.

The story that the responsibility for the above-said case rests with the DPRK is obviously nothing but a politically motivated dastardly and vicious plot and fraud of the U.S. and south Korean puppet group, the commentary notes, and goes on:

When the "Cheonan" case broke out, the U.S. used "threat from north Korea" for strongly pressurizing Japan into yielding to Washington over the issue of transferring the U.S. forces base in Okinawa, a serious challenge to realizing its Asia-Pacific strategy for aggression, and thus forced the Hatoyama regime uncomfortable for it to step down. This met its double ends.

The U.S. is also using the case for tightening its grip on Japan and south Korea and accelerating the formation of a triangular military alliance of the U.S., Japan and south Korea. The U.S. is openly disclosing its intention to sell large quantities of weapons to south Korea, secure a pretext for moving its naval strike group to the Korean Peninsula and the West Sea of Korea, sensitive waters for China in terms of security, and delay the U.S. transfer of the "right to command the wartime operation" to south Korea slated to take place in 2012, for the present.

The U.S. required the above-said case to make its government appear strong in the run-up to the mid-term Congressional election slated for coming November or justify its "policy of strategic patience" to suffocate the DPRK's economy in a sustainable manner.

If the UNSC unjustly handles the case, taken in by lies of the U.S., sparking off a military conflict on the peninsula, the U.S. and the UNSC will be wholly accountable for its consequences.

The UNSC had better properly understand the truth of the case and the gravity of the issue and observe the principle of respect for sovereignty and impartiality.
