U.S. Urged to Abandon Its Scheme to Prevent Detente on Korean Peninsula
Pyongyang, January 26 (KCNA) -- Choe Song Ho, a researcher of the room for international policy studies at the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences, on Jan. 25 issued a commentary titled "The U.S. should abandon its foolish scheme to prevent detente on the Korean Peninsula".
The commentary condemns the U.S., which once cried out for a peaceful solution to the Korean Peninsula issue, for making every possible effort to stop the present affirmative development of the inter-Korean relations based on concerted efforts.
Typical of such attempts is what the U.S did at the "foreign ministers' meeting on the security and stability on the Korean Peninsula" held in Vancouver of Canada, it says, and goes on:
The meeting was, in fact, for confab on a new war, not on the stability of the peninsula. It was attended by 20 countries and regions, including those which participated in the Korean War against the DPRK in the 1950s. At the meeting, the U.S. wooed them to ratchet up the sanctions and pressure on the DPRK with threatening words and cried out for a military option again.
U.S. Secretary of State Tillerson, in particular, fanned the confrontation with the DPRK by claiming that the efficiency of the U.S.-led maximum pressure strategy, such as sea blockade, should be raised and all the nations should pool their efforts to make the north pay more dearly. U.S. Secretary of Defense Mattis, who appeared before the audience in neckties, made such violent remarks like the boss of gangsters that the scenario for war with north Korea has been ready and unless the meeting goes well, defense ministers' meeting will be held next, which stunned the audience.
Heavyweights of the U.S. political circle and administration made no scruple of hurling a stream of provocative remarks that it is high time the U.S. took the initiative by putting the DPRK on the defensive, it is necessary to stop the present trend in which the U.S. overturned with the DPRK's appeasement policy, and the Trump administration is very seriously examining the military option against the DPRK.
What merits a more serious attention is that the U.S. is further aggravating the tension by deliberately revealing that the extremely dangerous military action targeting the Korean Peninsula is not hot air.
It has been recently disclosed that an electronic warfare plane and a formation of special operation planes were secretly deployed in south Korea for ultra-precision surveillance on the DPRK. Those planes were said to have proved their combat effectiveness in theatres of wars such as former Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Such ill-boding movements of the U.S., timed to coincide with the creation of a new climate for the detente and peace, go to prove that what the U.S. wants awake or asleep is not peace and stability on the peninsula but instability and the exacerbation of military tension and start of war for aggression on the DPRK.
The south Korean authorities have earnestly and repeatedly requested their American master to help them successfully hold the Winter Olympics they managed to have held in south Korea, but the answer was such disturbing movements and the aggravation of tension. Therefore, they have to know what a foolish thing they have expected.
The reality requires all Koreans to get awakened lest the U.S. meddle in the Korean Peninsula issue any longer and decisively reject such intervention by their concerted efforts in order to successfully hold the forthcoming great national event and bring about a turning point in the north-south relations development.
The U.S. is advised to understand that it would be seriously mistaken if it thinks that the situation of the peninsula would change as intended by it and would be controlled by it as it used to do.
The U.S. should be well aware of the Korean nation's fixed will for independent reunification and its powerful strength for peace, stop the reckless provocative adventures and make a reasonable and rational choice, though belatedly.
