Spokesman for DPRK Foreign Ministry Blames Australia for Joining U.S. in Aggravating Situation

Pyongyang, August 19 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA on August 19 as regards the fact that the Australian government is joining the U.S. in aggravating the situation on the Korean peninsula and the region:

At a local radio interview on August 11, the Australian prime minister made reckless remarks that the allies including Australia were together with the U.S. and that ANZUS stood for the mutual defense between the U.S and Australia, should either one of them come under attack, and Australia would back the U.S. in time of emergency.

Meanwhile, the defense minister and the military brass hat of Australia officially announced that the Australian troops would participate in "Ulji Freedom Guardian" joint military exercises.

Trump faced a hail of criticism from numerous political and social figures of the U.S. including the Congress for revealing his war hysteria by making belligerent remarks such as "fire and fury", and the countries which are supposedly the U.S allies are trying to avoid getting involved in the aggressive maneuvers of the U.S.

Not long after the Australian prime minister had stated that they would join in the aggressive moves of the U.S., even referring to ANZUS which exists in name only, the Australian military announced that they would dispatch their troops to the aggressive nuclear exercises of the U.S. This is a suicidal act of inviting disaster as it is an illustration of political immaturity unaware of the seriousness of the current situation.

Great irony is that the Australian premier, who had once condemned the military option for confrontation of Trump that it will have destructive consequences, made U turn in his stand at the admonition of the U.S, taking no account of Australia's own interests.

Australia followed the U.S. to the Korean War, the Vietnamese War and the "war on terrorism", but heavy loss of lives and assets were all that it got in return.

The Australian government had better devote time and energy to maintaining peace of its own country, instead of forgetting the lessons learned in the past and joining the U.S. in the moves for nuclear war.

Countries like Australia that join the military adventure against the DPRK, blindly following the U.S., will never avoid the counter-measures of justice by the DPRK. -0-
