US Accused of Putting Spurs to Development of New Type Missiles
Pyongyang, May 13 (KCNA) -- Minju Joson Thursday in a signed commentary accuses the United States of putting spurs to the development of new type missiles under the smokescreen of "nuclear disarmament".

The commentary says:

The U.S. is vociferating about "nuclear disarmament" and "nuclear non-proliferation" these days while advocating the building of "a world without nuclear weapons." This is, however, nothing but a cynical ploy to deceive the world by disguising itself as "an apostle of peace" and "a pioneer in nuclear disarmament".

It is the ulterior intention of the U.S. to increase the number of arsenals of sophisticated arms and equipment including nukes in a bid to hold an unchallenged military edge and mount a preemptive attack on any target any time.

Herein lie the reactionary nature and danger of the moves desperately stepped up by the U.S. to bolster up strategic offensive weapons including modern nukes behind the curtain of "nuclear disarmament".

The U.S. scenario to use strategic offensive weapons as conventional ones is arousing great concern among the international community. It is by no means fortuitous that many countries of the world are becoming strongly cautious about the U.S. arms build-up, claiming that no one but the U.S. would know whether its flying intercontinental ballistic missile is fitted with a nuclear warhead or conventional warhead. They contend that there is worry that this may easily trigger off a nuclear war as it is hard to discern its marking.

If the U.S. is allowed to continue pursuing its missile development, modernization of nukes and arms-buildup as now, this will throw the world into the vortex of arms race and render the international situation more complicated.

With no rhetoric can the U.S. cover up its true colors as the arch criminal escalating the arms race and international tension and seriously threatening and disturbing world peace and security.
