Rodong Sinmun Hits at U.S. Scheme for Triangular Military Alliance

Pyongyang, December 7 (KCNA) -- During his recent junkets to south Korea and some Asian countries, the U.S. secretary of Defense told that there would be no reduction of U.S. troops in south Korea despite the cuts in military spending. He also said that the United States would keep its commitment to strengthening the U.S.-south Korea alliance and preventing "north Korea's attack".

In the wake of his statement, the commander of the U.S. forces in Japan, the U.S. ambassador to it and others talked nonsense that the U.S. forces would continue their engagement in Japan despite the drastic cuts in military expenditure and that the U.S.-Japan alliance plays an important role in the Asia-Pacific region.

Commenting on the facts, Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says in a bylined commentary:

The U.S. tries to keep south Korea and Japan under its control though it is at serious crisis. This shows its criminal intention to perpetuate the U.S. military presence in the Asia-Pacific region and beef up armed forces so as to maintain and strengthen its military domination.

The U.S. gives top priority to strengthening the military alliance with Japan and south Korea in its forward-deploying diplomacy for realizing the Asia-Pacific strategy.

By rounding off the triangular military alliance at an early date the U.S. seeks to produce an Asian-type NATO stronger in nature of aggression and interference capacity than any other military nexus.

The spearhead of main attack by this alliance is directed against the DPRK and its surrounding countries.

The U.S. is working to test the efficiency of the alliance in the Korean Peninsula.
