Interference in Others' Internal Affairs, Inveterate Bad Habit of U.S.: News Analyst
| Pyongyang, March 18 (KCNA) -- It is the inveterate bad habit of the U.S. to poke its nose in others' affairs for no reason.
It is the U.S. which meddles in all the world affairs, brandishing the stick of sanctions and interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, styling itself the "international judge".
A typical example is its persistent opposition to the construction of pipeline liking Iran and Pakistan.
Shortly ago, the U.S. threatened the countries with sanctions should the pipeline construction proceeds, admonishing Pakistan to find other alternative for settling energy problem instead of the project with Iran.
Whether Pakistan does cooperation with Iran or other countries is entirely an issue pertaining to the sovereign right of Pakistan.
The construction of pipeline is a form of economic cooperation between countries and, therefore, the U.S. does have no justifications to oppose.
However, the U.S. has gone so impudent as to interfere in the internal affairs of independent countries and wantonly violated their sovereignty, to meet its sinister purposes.
The aim sought by the U.S. in opposing the pipeline project is to check Iran's export of oil and natural gas, a key source of revenue for the country, and strike its economy. By doing so, the U.S. seeks to make people distrust the government and force Iran to abandon peaceful nuclear energy development.
This is a brigandish act.
It is the U.S. gangster-like logic that those countries disobedient to it can not make regular export and import as well as peaceful nuclear development and satellite launch.
The Pakistani and Iranian governments are maintaining the firm stands of rejecting the U.S. pressure and threats and pushing forward the pipeline project.
Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari at a press conference said the pipeline will contribute to meeting the gas and energy need of the country and be greatly beneficial to future generations.
He stressed that Pakistan acts in state interests only as an independent state and will push forward the project despite the U.S. threats.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, addressing a ground-breaking ceremony for the pipeline construction, held that the U.S. has no right to hamper the construction as the project has nothing to do with Iran's nuclear issue.
The project is a great work conducive to contributing to regional peace and stability and helpful to the regional countries as well as the two countries.
A saying goes that dogs bark, caravan moves on.
However hard the U.S. may resort to pressure and blackmail, interfering in the internal affairs of other countries at its will, it can never dampen the desire and wishes of mankind to advance toward independent development and prosperity.
