Rodong Sinmun Urges U.S. to Roll Back Its Anachronistic Hostile Policy toward DPRK
Pyongyang, June 8 (KCNA) -- An international TV broadcasting service of Russia conveyed the gist of comments of U.S. experts on the Korean issue contributed to the U.S. magazine National Interest as follows:

The DPRK's position has become strong in the international arena in recent several months.

The DPRK succeeded in the nuclear test in January and successfully launched a satellite in February. The Seventh Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea took place early in May for the first time since 1980.

The U.S. government should not underestimate the DPRK's nuclear capability.

There is no way for the U.S. to stop the DPRK's nuclear program. In case a war against it breaks out, this will not be confined to the Korean peninsula.

Commenting on this, Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says:

This is a noteworthy comment as it truthfully reflects the reality today when the balance of force between the DPRK and the U.S. has completely changed.

The DPRK's international prestige and influence have remarkably risen. The DPRK is demonstrating its might as a nuclear power possessed of even H-bomb.

In the past the U.S. could threaten and blackmail the DPRK, non-nuclear weapon state, with nukes. But, the DPRK, which ranks itself among nuclear powers, is putting pressure upon the U.S. through its powerful military muscle.

The situation goes to clearly prove once again that the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK is an anachronistic one.

The U.S. has to choose between two strategic options: To put a definite end to its hostile policy toward the DPRK or allow its mainland to suffer a nuclear disaster and to be wiped off the surface of this planet.

The U.S. would be well advised to properly recognize the status of the DPRK as a nuclear power and face up to the trend of the times, though belatedly, and opt to roll back its anachronistic hostile policy toward the DPRK as early as possible.
