The Pyongyang Times issued a report from their North Korean (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea or DPRK) state run Korean Central News Agency spreading more propaganda to its citizens. As the USS Carl Vinson carrier battle group steams to the Korean peninsula, there is no shortage of state sponsored rhetoric to drive fear into the already submissive population. The following report was issued from the reclusive nation’s state sponsored news outlet:
“DPRK’s stand reiterated in UN
Instability and risks of nuclear war are growing worldwide as the US is recklessly building up its nuclear forces and other nuclear weapons states are following suit not to be outdone, the DPRK delegate said on April 3 in the UN.
Addressing the 2017 Meeting of the United Nations Disarmament Commission, the DPRK delegate said that any progress can never be expected in nuclear disarmament unless anachronistic bid to maintain the global domination by securing the nuclear edge is halted.
The overall and complete nuclear disarmament and the removal of constant threat to global peace and security are possible only when the US’ nuclear threat and military actions aimed at bringing down independent countries by force are stopped, he stressed.
The US is the arch criminal disturbing peace and stability on the peninsula and in other parts of Northeast Asia, he stated.
“It is thanks to the DPRK commitment to peace and its tremendous nuclear deterrent for self-defence that peace has been preserved on the Korean peninsula despite the US’ nuclear war moves.
“As long as the US and its vassal forces persistently pose nuclear threat and blackmail and continue the nuclear war games masked as annual ones at the doorstep of the DPRK, the DPRK will as ever bolster up its capabilities for self-defence and preemptive attack with the nuclear force as the pivot,” he said.
He urged the Disarmament Commission to pay particular attention to infringement upon sovereignty of other countries and attempts to bring down their social systems, more specifically such moves as overt nuclear threat, war drills and sanctions and blockade. And he clarified the DPRK’s stand to support the activities of the non-aligned movement for overall and complete nuclear disarmament and to join the efforts to this end.
