Pyongyang, January 25 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korea-Asia Association on Thursday gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA over "A Resolution on the Peace of the Korean Peninsula" which was adopted at the 26th meeting of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum in Vietnam:
The 26th meeting of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF) held recently in Vietnam adopted the so-called "Resolution on the Peace of the Korean peninsula".
What cannot be overlooked is the fact that the "resolution" denounced the self- defensive measures taken by the DPRK as a serious provocation against the stability of the Korean Peninsula and the peace of Northeast Asia and the world, while insisting on "the abandonment of nuclear weapons" of the DPRK, a full-fledged nuclear power.
The "resolution" intentionally ignored the root cause of nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula, created by the United States, and followed the anti-DPRK hostile policy of the U.S. running amuck to oppose the dignified DPRK to the international community.
An atmosphere for peace and security in the Korean Peninsula and for reconciliation and unity of the whole Korean nation is now created thanks to respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un's noble love for the nation, strong will for the reunification based on devotion to the country and people and great and courageous determination for safeguarding peace.
The "resolution", cooked up against this atmosphere by taking advantage of the anti- DPRK hostile policy of the U.S., is no more than an unreasonable and senseless paperwork devoid of elementary political sense and of ability for situation analysis.
Our country's nuclear forces are capable of thwarting and countering any nuclear threats from the U.S., and they constitute a powerful deterrent that prevents the U.S. from starting an adventurous war.
The DPRK will resolutely counter any acts of wrecking peace and security on the Korean Peninsula.
The participants in the meeting should clearly distinguish between the peace breaker on the Korean Peninsula and the peace defender making sincere efforts for peace and security of the region and the world.
Any countries, if they are truly interested in maintaining the peace and security of the Korean Peninsula, should not be involved in the acts of intentionally instigating the escalation of tension on the Korean Peninsula but think twice before doing something.
The DPRK will, in the future, too, uphold the banner of simultaneously pushing forward the economic construction and the buildup of nuclear force and make positive efforts to build a just and peaceful new world as a responsible, peace-loving nuclear power.
