Press Statement of Vice-Chairman of WPK Central Military Commission

Pyongyang, June 24 (KCNA) -- Pak Jong Chon, vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), made public the following press statement on June 24:

The clouds of a new world war are hanging over the whole of Europe due to the U.S. ever-escalating confrontational hysteria against Russia.

According to media reports, Sullivan, national security adviser of the White House, said on June 18 that Kiev can use U.S.-supplied weapons to hit any Russian forces attacking from across the border.

A spokesman for the U.S. Defense Department did not hesitate to say at a press conference on June 20 that Ukrainian forces can use U.S.-supplied weapons to strike any Russian forces not only in Kharkov region near border but also those in any parts of the Russian territory.

As already known, the U.S. has expanded its military support for the puppet Zelenskiy clique since the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis, providing it with MRLs, MBTs, depleted uranium bombs, etc., and it totals over 100 billion U.S. dollars.

As the war situation has turned more unfavorable to the Zelenskiy regime since the outset of this year, the U.S. provided Ukraine with ATACMS (army tactical missile system) with a range of 300 km and allowed it to attack the Russian territory up to 200 miles (about 320 km) from border.

This time the U.S. has gone so far as to allow the Ukrainian neo-Nazis to strike any part of Russian territory at their will. This is no more than a crazy last-ditch effort to turn the ever-worsening tide of war by driving the Zelenskiy clique to a reckless attack on the depth of the Russian territory.

The U.S., which had claimed it would neither encourage the Ukrainian forces to scale up their attack beyond border nor offer any assistance enabling it, finally betrayed its true colors as a heinous anti-Russia maniac after taking off that spurious mask.

Rash acts may bring a sudden calamity.

If the rulers of the U.S. persist in recklessly pushing their war machine Ukraine to a proxy war against Russia as now, it will inevitably provoke a stronger response from Russia, thus further deteriorating the regional security situation and resulting in an all-out military conflict with Russia and a new world war, the worst-ever consequences.

It is the due right to self-defence for Russia to make a strategic counterattack to defend its security from the ever-aggravating threat from the hostile forces, and any responsive action to be taken by it will be a just action for legitimate self-defence.

Of course, Russia has the right to opt for any kind of retaliatory strike.

We will always be together with the Russian army and people all out in a just struggle for defending sovereign rights, strategic stability and territorial integrity of their country. -0-
