U.S. Military Attack on Sovereign State Blasted

A spokesman of the Institute for Disarmament and Peace(IDP) of the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued a statement on April 13 to condemn the U.S. for making military attacks at a sovereign state while crying out for “peace by strength.”

As already reported, the U.S. massive missile attack on Syria constitutes a blatant violation of international law and an insolent and barbarous act of aggression.

The statement said that the U.S. is disturbing the global peace and stability and insisting on the gangster-like logic that its invasion of a sovereign state is “decisive, just and proportionate” and contributes to “defending” the international order in its bid to apply it to the Korean peninsula.

The U.S. introduces into the Korean peninsula, the world’s biggest hotspot, huge nuclear strategic assets, seriously threatening peace and security of the peninsula and pushing the situation there to the brink of a war, it pointed out, saying: This has created a dangerous situation in which a thermo-nuclear war may break out any moment on the peninsula and posed serious threat to the world peace and security, to say nothing of those in Northeast Asia.

What should not be overlooked is that the U.S. openly connives at the south Korean puppet forces who are openly blustering that they can test-fire a ballistic missile of 800km range and deploy it for an actual battle as a strategic asset for “removing the headquarters in the north”.

The U.S. connives at whatever is launched by its allies, whether it is a missile or a spy satellite but it slings mud at those launched by independent countries, claiming it can fire missiles at those countries.

This biased act little short of the application of double-standards can never be tolerated.

The reality reinforces the truth of history that peace is not offered by others but has to be defended by one’s own strength, and clearly proves what a correct option the DPRK made when it decided to drastically bolster the nuclear force while tightening belt. Nothing will be more childish and foolish than for the U.S. to dream of “bringing down social system” in the DPRK through “cooperation” with someone.
