Time Will Prove DPRK's Option Is Right: KCNA Commentary
Pyongyang, December 24 (KCNA) -- World public is increasingly admiring the DPRK's push for building a socialist power.

On December 17, the U.S. online Fox News in an Associated Press article dealing with change in the DPRK over the past five years said the DPRK's political base has been further consolidated under the guidance of supreme leader Kim Jong Un and great progress was made in the economy, national defence and cultural life.

North Korea became a nuclear weapons state thanks to its line of simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force, the article noted, adding over the past five years north Korea's nuclear capacity was bolstered up and this period witnessed three of five nuclear tests conducted by it so far including the most powerful nuclear test and H-bomb test.

The DPRK has now access to nuclear weapons capable of striking the U.S. forces in south Korea and Japan and on Guam and even the U.S. mainland, and has invigorated its domestic economy and made drastic achievements in cultural field, the article pointed out, adding: Now it is trying to conquer the moon within ten years.

Media of Spain and Kuwait also gave wide publicity to the eye-opening successes registered by the DPRK during the past five years.

This can not but be clear understanding and appreciation by the world society of the great successes made by the DPRK in building a socialist power under the wise guidance of Marshal Kim Jong Un and validity of the DPRK's cause advancing toward the final victory.

Over the past five years the U.S. has enforced hostile policy toward the DPRK to bring it down, after setting it as the first target of attack for realizing the U.S. strategy for aggression and domination over Asia-Pacific.

It has cooked up gangster-like "sanctions resolutions" one after another while persistently clinging to its "strategic patience" aimed at bringing down the DPRK's social system.

It has run amuck to start a nuclear war while conducting war exercises under various codenames every year after shipping huge nuclear strategic assets into the Korean Peninsula and its surrounding areas.

In those days nobody checked the U.S. nuclear threat and arbitrary practices against the DPRK and no one kept it from encroaching upon the latter's sovereignty, vital right and right to development.

The DPRK turned out in all-out confrontation with the U.S. imperialists while simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force by dint of self-reliance and self-development in the face of the latter's daily-increased moves for a nuclear war and nuclear threat and blackmail.

In this period it had access to H-bomb and passed through the final gate for rounding off its national nuclear force by conducting a nuclear warhead explosion test.

Today the Korean people are continuously making world-startling miracles in building a socialist power with full confidence in victory being backed by the powerful war deterrence.

The reality clearly proves the validity of the DPRK's idea and cause that the powerful nuclear force guarantees peace and prosperity and dignity of the nation.

The DPRK's just option will remain unchanged for all ages.
