Statement supporting the April 21 Memorandum of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK
Today, world peace and security are linked together with the world denuclearization. The denuclearization of the Korean peninsula is a part of the world denuclearization.
As long as the nuclear issue in the Korean peninsula is concerned, it is the inevitable result of a nuclear threat that was incessantly created and sustained by the U.S. against the DPRK for decades.
The U.S. President threatened to use A-bomb against the DPRK in 1950. After, the U.S. deployed more than 1000 nuclear weapons in south Korea and perpetrated the U.S.-south Korea joint nuclear war exercises for more than 40 years since the 1969.
The U.S. finally defined the DPRK as a target of “the pre-emptive nuclear attack” in 2002 putting the Korean nation into the extreme danger of nuclear catastrophe.
The DPRK made the nuclear deterrent to cope with the nuclear threat from the U.S.
We believe that it is the sovereign measure of “nuclear weapon for nuclear weapons”. A nation has the right to use whatever means necessary to defend itself.
The peace treaty should be concluded to put an end to the armistice and to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. We are extending our firm support to the politics of DPRK to build the lasting peace regime on the Korean peninsula and denuclearize it.
