There Will Be No DPRK-U.S. Talks on Denuclearization: Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, April 20 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is now talking about 'dialogue' with the DPRK, putting up the latter's step for denuclearization as a precondition for dialogue. High-ranking U.S. officials let loose a spate of rhetoric that President Obama ordered to cancel some military drills, contributing to detente, the DPRK should be sincere in the efforts for realizing denuclearization and dialogue is possible only when it opts for denuclearization.
Rodong Sinmun Saturday observes in a bylined article in this regard:
This is nothing but rhetoric prompted by the U.S. crafty ploy to shift the blame for the tension on the Korean Peninsula on to the DPRK and put international pressure on it.
The U.S. should not think about the denuclearization on the peninsula before the world is denuclearized.
It is nuclear weapons which the U.S. regards as the only means for containing its regional rivals and establishing its military domination. By taking advantage of its nuclear edge it seeks to browbeat its rivals to make them obedient to it and attain its hegemonic purposes. Its main target is the Korean Peninsula.
Its scenario is to put the Korean Peninsula under its military control and establish its control over the Eurasian Continent, using it as a base.
What matters is that the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK will remain unchanged.
The U.S. policy of threatening the DPRK with nukes will also remain unchanged unless the U.S. abandons its ambition to dominate the world.
The above-said precondition raised by the U.S. for dialogue goes to fully prove that the U.S. harbors an ulterior intention to force the DPRK to dismantle its nukes and then put it under the U.S. military control.
The DPRK's stand is clear. The U.S. should not think about the denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula before the world is denuclearized. There may be talks between the DPRK and the U.S. for disarmament but no talks on denuclearization.
