Minju Joson Denounces Japanese FM's Reckless Remarks
Pyongyang, February 21 (KCNA) -- Japanese Foreign Minister Kishida at a recent press conference said that Japan cannot rule out the possibility of "north Korea escalating the tension" as regards the U.S.-south Korea joint military drills and blustered that "it is important for Japan and the U.S. to have coordinated actions."

Minju Joson Friday observes in a commentary in this regard:

What Kishida uttered strongly hints at his wicked intention to groundlessly brand the DPRK as a "provoker" without taking the situation prevailing on the Korean peninsula at present into due consideration.

Had the Japanese diplomatic boss been truly concerned about the stable situation in and around the peninsula, he should have given right advice to the U.S., not to the DPRK.

However, Kishida is busy pleasing the U.S., keeping mum about its misbehavior though he is well aware of it.

These days the Japanese reactionaries are standing totally isolated in Asia for their despicable act of denying history and evading the responsibility for settling their past crimes. They are in such poor position that they are shunned even by their master.

Feeling uneasy, the Japanese reactionaries are zealously backing the U.S. in its hostile policy towards the DPRK as a measure to tide over the crisis.

It is the cunning calculation of the Japanese reactionaries to come under the strong patronage of the U.S. by boosting the alliance with it under the pretext of "military provocation" from the DPRK, get rid of the diplomatic isolation and create a climate favorable for turning Japan into a military giant and implementing the policy for militarist overseas expansion.

In a word, Japan is going so mean as to fish in the troubled waters politically by recklessly toeing the U.S. policy aimed to escalate tension on the peninsula.

The Japanese reactionaries would be well advised to clearly know that their sycophantic idea toward the U.S. and policy of toeing Washington cannot guarantee the future of Japan.

If a war breaks out in Korea, Japan will not be safe, either.
