Pyongyang, November 7 (KCNA) -- Recently the U.S. stockpiled about 70 B-61 nuclear bombs in a U.S. air force base in Turkey under the pretext of "coping with emergency". It is mulling deploying fighters capable of carrying nuclear bombs in the base.

Rodong Sinmun Wednesday observes in a bylined commentary in this regard:

This is an action of posing a nuclear threat to Mideast countries.

The Middle East is a complicated region beset with problems hard to solve, but there is no need for the U.S. to introduce nuclear bombs into Turkey.

The commentary lays bare the aim sought by the U.S. in deploying them in the Mideast region, which is as good as a nuclear-free zone, with the exception of Israel, a lackey of the U.S.

It is the calculation of the U.S. to encourage the pro-U.S. forces in Mideast to turn the standoff between the pro-U.S. forces and anti-U.S., anti-Israel forces favorable to it and eliminate its rivals in Mideast even by use of nukes if an opportunity presents itself, it notes, and continues:

This patently proves that the U.S. is the arch criminal threatening the non-nuclear countries with nukes and seeking to realize its hegemonic ambition and a source of trouble in the world.

The DPRK will never slacken even a moment the work to bolster up its nuclear deterrence for self-defence to cope with the U.S. threat to brandish nukes as it pleases.
