Pyongyang, August 17 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK issued a statement on Wednesday in connection with the fact that the situation on the Korean peninsula has entered a very grave phase due to the U.S. ceaseless nuclear arms buildup targeting the DPRK.
The statement said that the U.S. brought to the Anderson air force base on Guam, on which B-52H strategic bombers are already deployed, several B-1Bs on August 6 and three B-2As on August 9, the first of their kinds in ten years, according to a report. It went on:
The introduction of the nuclear strategic bombers to Guam by the U.S. in the wake of its official decision on the deployment of THAAD in south Korea after bringing into the Korean peninsula and its vicinity strategic assets including nuclear-powered carrier and nuclear submarines proves that the U.S. plan for a preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK has entered a reckless phase of implementation.
Such military moves of the U.S. are part of its sinister strategy to contain Russia and China in the Asia-Pacific and maintain its military hegemony in the region, not just aiming at a surprise preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK.
It is the fixed stand of the DPRK to fundamentally remove the danger of a nuclear war imposed by the U.S. by dint of a powerful nuclear deterrence and safeguard the peace and security in the region and the world.
The army and people of the DPRK will never remain an on-looker to the U.S. nuclear threat and blackmail getting ever-more pronounced with each passing day, but will whet more sharply the treasured sword of nuclear weapons of justice for defending the sovereignty and security of the country.
If the U.S. goes reckless, misjudging the trend of the times and the strategic position of the DPRK, all the U.S. military bases in the operational theatre in the Pacific including Guam will face ruin in the face of all-out and substantial attack to be mounted by the army of the DPRK. -0-
