Political Researcher on Essence of DPRK-U.S. Confrontation

O Ryong Chol, a researcher of the World Politics Study Center of the DPRK Institute for International Studies, released a commentary titled “Essence of DPRK-U.S. Confrontation Should Be Looked Squarely” on Thursday.

The essence of the present situation on the Korean peninsula and the DPRK-U.S. confrontation has been seriously distorted due to the U.S. false propaganda against the DPRK and its followers’ rhetoric about cooperation, the commentary noted.

The DPRK-U.S. confrontation is the one between the U.S. resorting to the extreme hostile policy and nuclear threat and blackmail for more than half a century and the DPRK striving hard to defend the sovereignty and rights to existence and development, it said, and went on:

Statement by Director of Press of Institute for American Studies of DPRK Foreign Ministry

Jo Chol Su, director of Press of the Institute for American Studies of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, issued the following statement on Tuesday:

Recently, some policy research institutions and media of the U.S. and other Western countries publicized the so called “merciless nuclear attack plan” of the DPRK and claimed that the DPRK is planning random and indiscriminate attacks on the U.S. and Asian countries, drawing no distinction between military and civilian targets.

On the other hand, they are prompting the baseless speculation that the DPRK seeks a nuclear attack on south Korea during the Pyongchang Winter Olympic Games and that the DPRK might go for another “ultra high level provocation” by conducting a ballistic missile test launch on the occasion of Christmas.

U.S. Introduction of Strategic Assets Flayed

Jong Nam Hyok, researcher at the Institute for American Studies of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK, disclosed in his commentary issued on Friday the danger of the U.S. moves of sending its strategic assets towards the Korean peninsula.

Saying that century-long nuclear blackmail and intimidation of the U.S. against the DPRK have now reached the zenith, the commentary noted that the U.S. introduction of its strategic assets has become more provocative and dangerous than ever before in its times, size and content, though it is less than one year since Trump took office. It went on:

No one can vouch that the U.S. moves will not lead to a preemptive nuclear attack and total war against the DPRK any moment.

U.S. Reckless Military Moves Compel DPRK to Take Action: Researcher of Institute for American Studies

Kim Kwang Hak, a researcher at the Institute for American Studies of the DPRK Foreign Ministry, released the following commentary titled “The U.S. reckless military moves compel the DPRK to take action” on Friday:

Recently the Trump group is making military bluffing against the DPRK, while introducing nuclear strategic equipment into areas around it one after another.

According to foreign reports, Trump met top military officers at White House on October 10 to have a confab over military counteraction against the DPRK. Meanwhile, the U.S. staged nocturnal flight exercises with Japan Air “Self-Defense Force” and the south Korean puppet airforce fighters after introducing two B-1B nuclear strategic bombers into the sky above the East Sea of Korea at night on the same day.

Spokesman of DPRK FM Institute for American Studies on Anti-DPRK Sanctions and Pressure

A spokesman for the Institute for American Studies of the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on Thursday as regards the absurd claims that sanctions and pressure upon the DPRK are a peaceful and diplomatic solution:

The U.S. which is desperately resorting to unprecedented and heinous sanctions to stifle the DPRK and a few countries following it have lately come up with the ridiculous nonsense that tightening sanctions and pressure is the way for the so-called “peaceful” and “diplomatic” solution to the issue of the Korean peninsula.

A few days ago, high-ranking officials of the U.S. administration including the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley said all options including military option are available but they are giving priority to the diplomatic solution. Their remarks are misleading public opinion as if the sanctions against the DPRK are a “peaceful” and “diplomatic” means.
