North Korea Threatens “Preemptive” Nuclear Attack
The North Korean regime continued to hurl threats at the United States and its regional allies on Tuesday.
In a report from the Pyongyang Times the regime said it would bolster its capabilities for self-defense and “preemptive attack with nuclear force.”
Instability and risks of nuclear war are growing worldwide as the US is recklessly building up its nuclear forces and other nuclear weapons states are following suit not to be outdone, the DPRK delegate said on April 3 in the UN.
Addressing the 2017 Meeting of the United Nations Disarmament Commission, the DPRK delegate said that any progress can never be expected in nuclear disarmament unless anachronistic bid to maintain the global domination by securing the nuclear edge is halted.
The overall and complete nuclear disarmament and the removal of constant threat to global peace and security are possible only when the US’ nuclear threat and military actions aimed at bringing down independent countries by force are stopped, he stressed.
The US is the arch criminal disturbing peace and stability on the peninsula and in other parts of Northeast Asia, he stated.
“It is thanks to the DPRK commitment to peace and its tremendous nuclear deterrent for self-defence that peace has been preserved on the Korean peninsula despite the US’ nuclear war moves.
“As long as the US and its vassal forces persistently pose nuclear threat and blackmail and continue the nuclear war games masked as annual ones at the doorstep of the DPRK, the DPRK will as ever bolster up its capabilities for self-defence and preemptive attack with the nuclear force as the pivot,” he said.
