Rodong Sinmun Calls for Bolstering Nation's Nuclear Deterrent

Pyongyang, April 8 (KCNA) -- No matter how desperately the enemies may work, the DPRK will further bolster up its nuclear deterrent both in quality and quantity as it serves as a treasured sword of justice, peace and patriotism.

Rodong Sinmun on Monday says this in a bylined article.

The nukes of the great Paektusan nation are a priceless asset common to all the Koreans, the article notes, and goes on:

By having access to nukes the DPRK emerged a power which no one can ever provoke.

The DPRK is the country which the formidable imperialist enemy styling itself a dominator of the world dares not provoke, describing it as 'the most fearful rival.' Neither pressure nor sanctions of the imperialists can work on it. It is the great country whose dignity will remain shinning for all ages free from uneasiness about aggression and war.

Nukes, the treasured sword of the DPRK, serve as reliable war deterrent to beat back any foreign aggression and provide a sure guarantee for defending the sovereignty of the nation.

The powerful nuclear force guarantees the peace on the Korean Peninsula and the prosperity and happy life of the nation.

The nukes of the DPRK are what keep the nation alive as they can never be bartered for any wealth.

Countries in the Balkans and Mideast gave up even their existing war deterrent, yielding to the pressure and appeasement of the imperialists after failing to build up powerful capacities for self-defence, reading faces of big powers. Finally, these countries fell victim to their aggression. The deplorable plight of their peoples teaches the lesson that any retreat and concession in the issue related to the life of the nation precisely lead to submission, subjugation and self-destruction.

All Koreans now realize why the thrice-cursed mushroom-shaped clouds of a nuclear explosion have not appeared in the greatest hotspot in the world and how the nuclear deterrent of the DPRK for self-defence is protecting their destiny.

Unshakable is the will of the army and people of the DPRK to fight a final battle to defend the dignity and sovereignty of the nation and achieve the historic cause of national reunification by wiping out the aggressors and provokers to the last man by the tremendous nuclear power of the great Paektusan nation.
