Japan Urged to Pay Heed to DPRK's Warnings
Pyongyang, June 8 (KCNA) -- Japan is making much fuss, talking about "prompt counter-action" and the like by the UN Security Council in the wake of its call for UNSC emergency meeting right after the nuclear test in the DPRK. It is now busy with the anti-DPRK campaign, vociferating about "sanctions," etc.

Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed article carried in this regard warns that Japan's "sanctions" against the DPRK will entail strong counter-actions.

It admits of no argument that the responsibility for the present situation rests with the UNSC and the U.S. and its followers that prodded it into producing its "presidential statement" which took issue only with the satellite launched by the DPRK for peaceful purposes and put into force the sanctions against it, thus unbearably hurting the dignity of the Korean people and gravely infringing upon the sovereignty of the DPRK, the article says, and goes on:

The DPRK is neither a signatory to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty nor to the Missile Technology Control Regime. It is not bound to anything.

The DPRK regards Japan's "sanctions" as no more than a despicable behavior of those who are taken aback by the dynamic advance of the Korean people to build a great prosperous and powerful nation. Japan is sadly mistaken if it calculates that its "sanctions" would throw any obstacle to the building of a thriving nation.

The national power of the DPRK has not been weakened by the enemy's "sanctions" against it but has grown stronger.

If there are reasonable politicians in Japan, they would be well advised to give up their foolish dream of bringing the DPRK to collapse by "sanctions" before suffering indelible disgrace.

It is the mode of counter-action of the DPRK to regard the vicious "sanctions" against it as a declaration of a war and react to them with the toughest measure.

Japan had better prudently pay heed to the DPRK's warnings.
