DPRK NDC Reiterates Its Stand to Fight It Out against US and S. Korean Puppets
A spokesman for the National Defence Commission of the DPRK on October 9 issued the following statement in connection with the fact that the south Korean puppets finally made public a so-called new “missile policy declaration” on October 7:
The “declaration” envisages extending the firing range of south Korea’s missiles to 800 km capable of attacking the entire region of the DPRK from the present 300 km, increasing the weight of warheads to over 500 kg when necessary so as to heighten the intensity of striking power and even equipping the puppet army with new lethal unmanned assaulters 2.5 t in weight and 300 km in cruising range.
The south Korean puppets are making officials of the Blue House and the puppet “Defense Ministry” speak loudly that the new “missile policy declaration” will make it possible to satisfactorily deter “threat” and “provocation” of the DPRK and to affect the northeastern area of China and the far eastern region of Russia, to say nothing of the whole area of the DPRK, with a missile fired from Taejon and other middle areas of south Korea.
Under the prevailing situation the DPRK National Defence Commission clarifies its principled stand as follows:
Firstly, the army and people of the DPRK will fight it out to invariably put into practice the slogan “Annihilate the US imperialist aggressors, the sworn enemy of the Korean people!”, given that the US hostile policy has become clearer through its puppets’ “missile policy declaration”.
Secondly, now that the south Korean puppets are seeking attacking the whole area of the DPRK by missiles at the instigation of their master, the army and people of the DPRK will bolster its military preparedness in every way to cope with them.
Thirdly, we would like to take this opportunity to appeal to the governments, political parties, organizations and peace-loving people of all countries around the world that value justice and sympathize with truth to heighten vigilance against the US arbitrary practices.
The “missile policy declaration” which the south Korean puppets made public in conspiracy with their American master is not a simple missile range extension guideline.
Lurking behind this is the sinister domination aim of the US to lay strategic siege to the Asian Continent and upset peace and stability in the region and thus establish the “US hegemony” in the Asia-Pacific region.
Still today, many people around the world fail to realize the arbitrary trick of the US behind the situations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria.
Now is the time to heighten vigilance against the US arbitrary practices and turn out in the actions to frustrate them.
We should not forget even a moment that a wolf never subsists on grass as long as it breathes.
The army and people of the DPRK will as ever hold high the banner of struggle against the US and the south Korean puppet forces and make vigorous efforts to achieve the country’s reunification and the global independence.
