Rodong Sinmun Accuses U.S. of Escalating Tension on Korean Peninsula
| Pyongyang, October 14 (KCNA) -- The situation on the Korean Peninsula is now inching close to an unpredictable phase due to war moves of the U.S., says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a commentary.
Only recent days ago, the U.S. talked about dialogue with the DPRK in the international arena. Nowadays, Washington is floating story that the DPRK is wholly to blame for disturbing peace on the peninsula. Putting up preconditions, it is claiming that it is willing to conclude a non-aggression treaty with the DPRK if those preconditions are met by it.
The commentary goes on:
Recently the U.S. staged joint naval maneuvers targeting the DPRK with Japanese and south Korean forces after bringing its nuclear carrier to the South Sea of Korea.
It is a mockery and hypocrisy towards the other party to stage such nuclear war maneuvers, while paying lip-service to dialogue and peace.
It is the consistent stand of the DPRK to improve the DPRK-U.S. relations and create a peaceful environment on the peninsula through dialogue and negotiations, opposed to the showdown of strength.
The DPRK has exercised its patience for the sake of dialogue and peace when the U.S. rattled its nerves.
The U.S. put a wet blanket on the DPRK's efforts for dialogue, putting up preconditions, conducting propaganda on the basis of lies and stoking hostility. The U.S. is more interested in increased tension than peace on the peninsula.
Not much penetration is needed to know what the U.S. seeks by deliberately escalating the tension quite contrary to the patient efforts of the DPRK. Washington's ulterior aim is to prevent Pyongyang from achieving economic progress and justify the former's arms build-up in the Asia-Pacific region.
No matter how desperately the hostile forces work, the DPRK will invariably keep to the road chosen by it and surely build a thriving socialist nation on this land, concludes the commentary.
