Japanese Reactionaries' Moves to Grab Tok Islets Censured by Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, September 19 (KCNA) -- The Japanese Foreign Ministry held a press conference recently at the instructions of the Japanese prime minister at which it cried out for the settlement of the Tok Islets issue at the International Court of Justice, claiming that the islets belong to Japan. It decided to make information video titled "Tok Islets are part of Japan's inviolable territory" and circulate it around the world. Japan has run ads laying claim to Tok Islets in about 70 central and local newspapers.
Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says in a bylined commentary in this regard:
This proves that their moves to grab the islets have reached a very reckless phase.
The Japanese reactionaries' assertion that the islets "belong to Japan" amounts to a vicious insult and encroachment upon the dignity and sovereignty of the Korean nation.
It is their real intention to make the islets an international dispute by misleading public opinion and thus justify their moves for grabbing the islets and realize their sordid aim to stage a comeback to Korea.
It is the invariable attempt of Japan to achieve the ambition for the "Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere" which it failed to do in the past. When they occupy the Korean Peninsula, they can reinvade Asia with it as a springboard. This is their dirty calculation.
Proceeding from this, they have persistently made nonsensical sophism that the islets are "part of the inviolable territory of Japan" in a bid to invent a pretext for the reinvasion of Korea.
The disgusting act of the Japanese militarists to grab other's islets in a brigandish way can not work on anyone.
Japan had better behave itself with its own senses.
