U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary's Reckless Remarks on "Missile Threat" from DPRK Assailed
Pyongyang, September 2 (KCNA) -- U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work, touring south Korea recently, talked about a trite "threat" from the DPRK. He let loose a spate of sophism that there is great likelihood of "provocation" from the DPRK and the U.S. is watching "missile threat" from the DPRK.

Commenting on this, Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says this is aimed to make "missile threat" from the DPRK a fait accompli in a bid to build a missile shield in south Korea under the pretext of it.

The U.S. much touted "missile threat" from the DPRK is nothing but sheer sophism, the commentary notes, and goes on:

The U.S. moves for building the missile shield in south Korea are obviously a product of the U.S. military strategy to upset the regional strategic equilibrium and contain big powers in its vicinity.

After adopting a pivot to Asia-Pacific policy for aggression, pursuant to its scenario for dominating the world, the U.S. is pursuing a strategy of laying a military siege to its potential rivals in the region, notably China, and containing and pressurizing it.

The U.S. is keen to plug south Korea into the missile shield in an effort to tighten the siege to China so that it may minimize its damage and maximize the effect of strike at the other party.

This is evidenced by the fact that the X-band radar to go operational together with THAAD which the U.S. is planning to deploy in south Korea covers major areas of China as its detecting sphere is 1 000 km.

The U.S. groundless accusation against the DPRK is nothing but a shameless and cynical ploy to conceal its true colors as the arch criminal upsetting the regional military equilibrium and sparking off an arms race and shift the blame for it onto others.

Regardless of what others may say, the DPRK will as ever make every possible effort to ensure peace and security on the Korean peninsula and in the rest of Northeast Asia.
