Pyongyang, January 28 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Korean National Peace Committee issued a statement on Sunday with the approach of 60 years since the U.S. officially published the introduction of nuclear weapons into south Korea.
The U.S. officially announced the above-said introduction on January 29, 1958 and undisguisedly opened to public nukes including atomic guns and Honest John nuclear missiles, the statement said, and went on:
Thenceforth the Korean Peninsula, once a nuclear free zone, has turned into a nuclear powder magazine and a source of nuclear war of the U.S. and the Korean nation has been at constant peril of nuclear war due to its nuclear stick.
Even at this time when the climate of national concord, unity and detente is growing strong on the Korean Peninsula thanks to our proactive measures and sincere efforts, the U.S. is bringing nuclear carrier task forces, nuclear strategic bombers and other huge nuclear war means to south Korea and its vicinity, imposing constant nuclear war threat and blackmail on our nation.
What should not be overlooked is the fact that the U.S. is planning to designate the DPRK as "potential state of nuclear threat" and stipulate even the scenario for preemptive nuclear strike in the "2018 nuclear posture review report" to be published around early February.
The past sixty years are a history of heinous aggression and crimes in which the U.S. reduced south Korea into the world's biggest nuclear weapons arsenal and most dangerous seat of nuclear war and has constantly threatened the destiny of the Korean nation with nukes.
The U.S. would be well advised to behave itself, aware that the days have gone for good when it could pose its unilateral threat to the DPRK with a nuclear stick.
The south Korean authorities should stop the shipment of U.S. nuclear strategic assets and aggressor forces which will spawn bloodshed on this sacred territory, cease the nuclear war exercises with the U.S. and respond to our sincere efforts for detente.
All compatriots in the north and the south and abroad should reject the anti-DPRK moves of the U.S. to bring clouds of a nuclear war to hang over Korea, and conduct more vigorous anti-U.S., anti-war struggle to drive the U.S. nuclear hardware and aggression forces out of south Korea.
