Nuclear Programs of DPRK and U.S. in Sharp Contrast (1)
Pyongyang, January 16 (KCNA) -- The DPRK's successful H-bomb test at the outset of the year has gone into the limelight of international community.

In this regard, Dr. So Song Il, director of the Socio-politics Institute under the Academy of Social Sciences, told KCNA:

The test made the DPRK hold a position of powerful nuclear-weapons state, equivalent to the permanent members of the UN Security Council.

Anyhow, the DPRK and the U.S. have quite different aspects in developing nuclear weapons.

The U.S. developed atomic and hydrogen bombs in an aim to realize its ambition for world domination, but the DPRK did them only to defend its sovereignty and right to existence.

At the close of the Second World War, fascist Germany and militarist Japan were no longer a serious threat to the security of the U.S. In fact, the U.S. would have felt no need to develop a nuke if it had no intention to check the influence of the former Soviet Union and put the world under its control.

On the contrary, the DPRK had to make a resolute decision to defend itself from the military pressure and nuclear threat of the U.S. and other hostile forces.

Referring to this fact, Antonio Razzi, secretary general of the Commission for Foreign Affairs of the Senate of Italy, told reporters that the first H-bomb test conducted by the DPRK was for self-defence and that every country has the right to choose a solution to protecting its own people.

Andrei Vinogradov, chief of the Center for Political Study and Forecast of the Institute of the Far East under the Russian Academy of Sciences, also said that the DPRK was compelled to take a resolute measure to protect its security from the moves of the U.S.-led hostile forces, stressing its access to H-bomb is an inevitable product of the hostile policy pursued by the U.S., Japan and south Korea.
