With nothing can the U.S. evade its responsibility for bringing a nuclear threat and proliferation to the international community and eventually destroying the world nuclear disarmament system, says Rodong Sinmun in a commentary Wednesday, adding: The most urgent task of the U.S. is to sincerely implement its commitment to nuclear disarmament and it is nothing but an empty talk to argue about nuclear non-proliferation apart from it. The analyst goes on:
Nuclear disarmament should be realized and all nukes be destroyed on the earth to begin with, if global peace and security are to be guaranteed.
The U.S. asserts non-proliferation, setting the existence of nuclear weapons as a separate issue from their proliferation. This means that it does not want nuclear disarmament.
It is nonsensical to talk about the non-proliferation of nukes apart from nuclear disarmament. This is a petty trick to smother up its commitment to nuclear disarmament behind the curtain of nuclear non-proliferation.
The U.S. is noisily beating the drum of nuclear non-proliferation. But it is the very one fostering nuclear proliferation.
Disarmament conventions including the NPT remain only in name, having lost their binding force, and the world has been pushed into the vortex of nuclear arms race by the nuclear strong-arm policy of the U.S. based on double standards.
The U.S. put pressure and sanctions against those countries falling out of its favor and go so far as wielding military stick, taking issue even with their nuclear activities for peaceful purposes by faking up false information, while shelving its own commitment to nuclear disarmament. This robber-like act can never be justified.
The nuclear problem on the Korean Peninsula is a product of the U.S. policy of nuclear threat to it. Its grave policy of nuclear threat is the main factor that pushed the DPRK to access to nukes. The DPRK was compelled to build nuclear deterrent as a just measure for self-defence to avert a war and defend its ideology, system, freedom and democracy in face of the increasing nuclear threat of the U.S. imperialists and their attempt at a preemptive nuclear attack. This entirely tallies with the principle of defending the sovereignty of a state and the requirements of international law for averting a war and ensuring peace. It is an act of disregarding and trampling underfoot international justice and impartiality to take issue with the DPRK's exercise of its right to self-defense.

Here is an appearance of the nuclear issue, often oddy absent from Korean News. The issue of the Iranian nuclear program is also in the background somewhere. This one isn't so funny:
