Rodong Sinmun Denounces U.S. for Encouraging Japan in Militarization
Pyongyang, April 23 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun on Wednesday in a commentary denounces the U.S. for encouraging Japan in its moves for militarization and reinvasion.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State recently talked nonsense that the U.S. welcomed the Japanese authorities' abandonment of the "three principles of arms export" and the like, the commentary notes, and goes on:

The spokesperson let loose a whole string of sophism that Japan's drop of those principles would help increase chances of cooperation with the U.S. in defence industry and simplify procedures and doing so would be favorable not only to Japan but to all states involved.

It is very ill-boding that the U.S. welcomed Japan's move with open arms, asserting that there is nothing for the international community to fear it, not content with propagandizing it.

The U.S. behavior is aimed to maintain and strengthen its military edge in the Asia-Pacific region and use Japan as a shock brigade for containing big powers in the region and thus meet its strategic interests.

The U.S. bellicose forces do not hide the fact that they need the Japanese military muscle in order to realize their ambition for world domination.

The U.S. is compelled to cut down its military spending due to its serious economic crisis. Under this situation it seeks to acquire latest technology for producing weaponry through the joint development of weapons with Japan, etc. and hold military supremacy in Asia.

The U.S. attitude welcoming Japan's move is, in the final analysis, little short of encouraging the monster of militarism crying out for revanchism.

The U.S. warmongers' criminal scenario will not be able to escape international rebuff and condemnation.
