Not Be a Shock Troop in Hopeless Cooperation for Pressing DPRK

During ASEAN Summit and other related meeting, the Japanese prime minister Kishida again found fault with the DPRK over its measures to bolster up its national defensive power, labeling them as “grave and imminent threat”, “clear and serious challenge to the international society” and “provocation of unprecedented frequency and dimensions”.

This is an intolerable infringement upon our sovereignty and a foolish attempt daring to tarnish the dignified image of the DPRK.

The military exercises conducted by us are self-defensive measures to cope with the aggressive and provocative large-scale war exercises staged by the hostile forces almost every day of the year.

The situation on the Korean peninsula is now developing to a brink of war due to the reckless military mania by the U.S. and south Korea. Under such circumstances, it becomes a legitimate right of a sovereign state to get itself fully prepared to efficiently contain and manage any threat to our country, which nobody can interfere or dispute with.

Japan contributed a large share to triggering our military counter-measures by taking part in war drills against the DPRK. Such a country is scheming without any shame to seek cooperation for putting pressure on the DPRK by taking advantage of international gatherings.

It is indeed the most extreme case of turning black into white and guilty party filing the suit first that Japan condemns our self-defensive military counteractions as threatening “provocation” while covering up its aggressive military exercises with “deterrence”.

Japan would be well-advised to put their noisy house in order first before acting as a shock troop in the hopeless cooperation scheme to press the DPRK.
