DPRK's Nuclear Force Is Treasured Sword for Defending Nation: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, December 3 (KCNA) -- The DPRK can never abandon nuclear weapons as long as the imperialists and nuclear threat exist on earth. The nuclear weapons are the life and soul of the nation that can never be bartered for anything and a treasure of reunified Korea, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an article.

It goes on:

The DPRK's nuclear force serves as a treasured sword of patriotism for defending and glorifying the sovereignty and dignity of the country and the nation.

A nuclear war has not broken out on the Korean Peninsula entirely thanks to the DPRK's powerful war deterrent force.

If the DPRK abandons nuclear weapons, a war for aggression will break out on this land and the nation will meet disaster and pain.

The DPRK's nuclear weapons will serve as weapons of justice for beating back the provocateurs and destroying aggression bases at a single stroke and reliably defending the sovereignty and dignity of the country and the nation in case the enemies dare encroach upon it.

The DPRK's nuclear force is the war deterrent force for self-defence which prevents the outbreak of a nuclear war and guarantees peace and security on the peninsula.

Given that the U.S. and the south Korean puppet group have become all the more undisguised in their intention to make a preemptive nuclear attack upon the DPRK, it is as clear as noonday for everyone that nuclear deterrent force has to be strengthened both in qualitative and numerical terms.

It is the DPRK's unwavering faith and will to reliably preserve peace on the peninsula and push ahead with a dynamic drive for building an economic power by strengthening the military power in every way with main emphasis on the nuclear deterrent force, as long as the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces continue their moves to ignite a nuclear war against the DPRK.
