U.S. high-ranking politicians are letting loose a spate of invectives, terming the DPRK's access to nuclear weapons "a violation of the UN Security Council's resolutions" and "threat to global peace and security". They are appeasing the DPRK, blustering that if it gives up nukes, the U.S. will "have dialogue with north Korea and think of providing economic aid".
Minju Joson Friday says in a bylined commentary in this regard:
Lurking behind the U.S. outbursts is a vicious aim to distort the nature of the DPRK's nukes in a bid to tarnish its international image, lay an international siege to it and stifle it, the news analyst notes, and goes on:
The DPRK's access to nukes is an exercise of the legitimate right to self-defence and so, no one is entitled to slander them.
Nevertheless, the U.S. is taking issue with the DPRK over its access to nuclear weapons. This reveals the U.S. extreme disheartened spirit and fit as its hostile policy toward the DPRK does not work on.
We neither read others' face over the nuclear force nor feel any need to gain others' approval in bolstering it in quality and quantity.
The DPRK will dynamically advance without hesitation true to the line set forth by the Workers' Party of Korea on simultaneously pushing forward the economic construction and the building of nuclear force no matter what others may say and no matter how the situation may change.
To try to change this strategic line based on the strong faith is a foolish ambition.
