Rodong Sinmun Calls for Bolstering up National Defense Capability with Nuclear Force as Pivot
Pyongyang, June 19 (KCNA) -- Alexandr Vorontsov, section chief of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said when interviewed by the broadcasting service Sputnik recently that the U.S. is pushing the DPRK to the action to bolster up its nuclear force.

Experts of different countries on the Korean affairs are unanimous in their views that the DPRK's access to nukes was an established fact, a natural outcome of the U.S. constant threat, and the former's nuclear force cannot but be bolstered up unless those countries concerned responsible for it make efforts to defuse the tension on the Korean peninsula.

Rodong Sinmun Friday observes in an article in this regard:

This is a proper comment on the historic background against which the DPRK was compelled to have access to nuclear deterrence and the present situation where it had no other option but to go in the direction of bolstering up the nuclear force.

The DPRK's status as a nuclear weapons state remains unchanged no matter how the U.S. and its followers denies it and the former will never give up the measure to bolster up the nuclear force because of someone's opposition.

The DPRK will further increase its capability for self-defence with nuclear force as a pivot as long as the U.S. persistently clings to its anachronistic hostile policy towards the former. This is an invariable stand of the DPRK, the article concludes.
