KCNA Commentary on Crucial Measures of KPA Supreme Command
| Pyongyang, March 6 (KCNA) -- The crucial measures stated to the world by the Supreme Command of the Korean People's Army are timely and decisive countermeasures aimed to defend the sovereignty of the country and its supreme interests from the U.S. moves for provoking a nuclear war.
The step for making the Korean Armistice Agreement fully nullified is a great one that will make it possible to foil the U.S. and its allies' attempt at a nuclear war at a single stroke and achieve at an early date the historic cause of national reunification.
Almost six decades have passed since the Korean Armistice Agreement (AA) was signed but it has existed for form's sake due to the U.S. systematic act of scrapping it. AA was just a tentative measure for starting negotiations on a political level within three months with an aim at withdrawing all foreign forces from the Korean Peninsula and ensuring lasting peace on it.
But the U.S. deliberately extended the state of armistice.
It concluded "mutual defence treaty" with the south Korean puppet forces in October 1953, making the U.S. forces' presence in south Korea a fixed rule.
Finally in June 1954, the U.S. intentionally disturbed the Geneva conference on the Korean Peninsula issue, thus blocking the way for the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Korea and the peaceful settlement of the Korean issue that were envisaged in the AA.
For the past decades, the U.S. massively shipped war means including nuclear weapons into south Korea and stepped up the preparations for a new war, thus rendering the AA completely defunct.
Nearly four decades have passed since a resolution on withdrawing all foreign forces from south Korea was adopted at the 30th UN General Assembly Session. But the U.S. has held dangerous nuclear war drills in south Korea on an annual basis while maintaining its military forces' presence in it, constantly threatening and blackmailing the DPRK.
It described the DPRK's recent peaceful satellite launch and the nuclear test for self-defence as "challenges" to the international community and has stepped up hostile acts against the DPRK.
From March 1st, it kicked off the Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint war rehearsals with the involvement of south Korean army and even troops of its satellite countries. It seeks to turn the nuclear war rehearsals into an actual war while touting "preemptive nuclear strike".
This is an open declaration of a war against the DPRK and another grave provocation that totally scraps AA.
Due to the U.S. reckless acts, AA has already been reduced to a dead document and there created on the Korean Peninsula a dangerous situation in which a war may break out any moment.
The situation proves that the settlement of accounts with the U.S. should be done only with arms as the U.S. pays no heed to any convention or international law.
The U.S., the world's biggest possessor of nuclear weapons and the only nuclear war criminal state, has made it a fait accompli to provoke a nuclear war. For the DPRK it will be just like committing suicide to remain bound to AA which has now become a mere scrap of paper.
The measure of the KPA Supreme Command on totally nullifying the effect of AA is another just one for defending the supreme interests of the nation.
The revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will mount Korean-style precision nuclear strike at any target any moment at its will and thus realize earlier the great cause of national reunification, the cherished desire of the Korean nation.
Time will prove once again in practice how Songun Korea displays its will and capabilities to win a final victory.
