Rodong Sinmun Accuses U.S. of Escalating Sanctions and Pressure on DPRK
Pyongyang, August 7 (KCNA) -- Some days ago, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill on intensified sanctions against the DPRK. The bill calls for cutting off north Korea's financial source of obtaining dollar and other foreign currencies to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons and missiles.

Meanwhile, the chief U.S. negotiator for the six-party talks said at a hearing before the U.S. Congress that the U.S. would continue pursuing its pressure policy towards north Korea as long as it does not stop the nuclear program.

Rodong Sinmun Thursday in an article observes in this regard:

The U.S. bluffing that it would continue pressing for north Korea's denuclearization is aimed to render the relations between the DPRK and its neighboring countries tense and create an atmosphere of putting sanctions and pressure on it.

The U.S. is making desperate efforts to defame the dignity of the DPRK with groundless lies and fabrications and hinder its advance through all sanctions and blockade. However, this is a mistake prompted by the U.S. poor understanding of the DPRK.

If the U.S. successive rulers had understood even a little the DPRK which has bolstered up its national power on the basis of the self-supporting national economy, they would not have held the useless stick of sanctions.

The world's biggest arms dealer U.S. may know well how powerful economic potentials and military muscle the DPRK has as it has taken diversified military countermeasures on a regular basis.

Even though the imperialists have imposed persistent sanctions on the DPRK, it has remained unperturbed. It built monumental edifices, successfully launched satellites and bolstered up the war deterrence by dint of Songun and is now stepping up the building of a thriving nation.

The U.S. policy-makers should give up their worn-out "policy of strategic patience", though belatedly, and mind their internal affairs rather than patching up the threadbare net of sanctions.
