Rodong Sinmun Lays Bare Aim Sought by U.S. in Talking about "Threat" from DPRK
Pyongyang, June 9 (KCNA) -- The vice-chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff in a seminar on missile defense blustered it is a top priority task of the U.S. MD to defuse the "missile threat" from the DPRK.

He said the U.S. is increasing combat readiness with all possibilities taken into consideration though north Korea has not yet test-fired an inter-continental ballistic missile capable of reaching the U.S. mainland and that cooperation among south Korea, Japan, Australia and other allies to cope with "threat of ballistic missiles" is very important.

Rodong Sinmun Monday observes in a commentary in this regard: The accusation made by the U.S. against the DPRK over its war

deterrence is nothing but a poor excuse to justify its MD.

The above-said outbursts let loose by the U.S. betray its cynical ploy to knock into shape a military bloc of NATO style in Northeast Asia in a bid to upset regional stability and strategic equilibrium and contain big powers in the region.

Washington is vociferating about non-existent "threat" from the DPRK to justify its pivot to Asia-Pacific strategy for aggression. But it will get it nowhere.

The DPRK has fulfilled its responsibility and role for peace and security on the Korean peninsula which is directly linked to the peace and security in Asia and the rest of the world.

It will as ever do its utmost for peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and in the region.

The U.S. criminal scenario to cook up the Asian version of NATO and dominate the Asia-Pacific region with it as a tool can never be justified but will certainly meet a fiasco.
