U.S. Cannot Browbeat DPRK with "Gunboat Diplomacy": Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- The U.S. war hysteria is an open challenge to the sincere efforts of the DPRK to defuse tension and create a peaceful climate on the Korean peninsula, and an act of disturbing peace, says Rodong Sinmun Tuesday in an article.

The U.S. thinks it can keep a hegemonic position in the Asia-Pacific region only when it puts the Korean peninsula and its vicinity under its control, the article notes, and goes on:

To this end it is foolishly scheming to browbeat the DPRK with modern day "gunboat diplomacy" the keynote of which is nuclear threat and military blackmail.

To look back on history, Korea was subject to disgrace of a ruined nation due the "gunboat diplomacy" of foreign forces. Many countries of the world had their sovereignty ruthlessly violated by the "gunboat diplomacy" of the U.S. and other big Western powers.

The U.S. is persistently resorting to nuclear threat and blackmail, regarding the "gunboat diplomacy" as an invariable method to bring down the DPRK.

The U.S. would be well advised to know well that gone are the days never to return when it could threaten and blackmail the DPRK with nukes.

It is the invariable stand of the DPRK to react to the U.S. nuclear threat with a powerful nuclear deterrent.

The more recklessly the U.S. resorts to nuclear threat and blackmail, the further the DPRK will bolster up its nuclear armed force for self-defence.

The U.S. should clearly understand it can never browbeat the DPRK with modern day "gunboat diplomacy" and go home at an early date, carrying with it huge nuclear armed forces in south Korea.
