DPRK's Tactical Rocket Firing Is Undebatable: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, August 31 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is fidgety over the drill of firing tactical rockets regularly conducted by the DPRK. Riff-raffs call the DPRK's regular firing of the tactical rockets a low-profile provocation to weaken the reaction of the international community.

Rodong Sinmun on Sunday observes in a commentary that rocket firing can never be taken up for argument, stressing it is a legitimate right of a sovereign country to exercise the right to self-defence.

The provocateur is none other than the U.S. as it shipped nuclear hardware into the Korean peninsula, pushing the situation to the worst phase with war drills, the commentary says, and goes on:

The U.S. insistence that the DPRK's rocket firing is a provocation is prompted by its intention to escalate joint military exercises over the latter's exercise of right to self-defence and deteriorate the situation in the peninsula and its vicinity and thus realize the ambition for invading the DPRK.

Herein lies the reason that the U.S. violently stirs up the confrontation racket over the DPRK's rocket firing that has nothing to do with it.

Nobody will be taken in by the U.S. tricks, however, as it tries hard to legalize the nuclear arms buildup by shifting the responsibility for the provocation on to the DPRK.

The U.S. should know that with no despicable counter-propaganda can it cover up its nature as aggressor and provocateur.

The DPRK will take stronger military countermeasures to cope with the joint military exercises for aggression conducted by the U.S. under the veil of "annual and defensive ones".
