The Nepalese newspaper Hangk on Feb. 27 carried an article titled “DPRK’s nuclear test to be observed from new angle”.
The newspaper said the DPRK’s successful satellite launch in December last year and its third underground nuclear test on Feb. 12 make the world look at it from a new angle, adding:
The DPRK’s third underground nuclear test that stunned the world was a message to the UN Security Council and the U.S. which have adopted only unfair resolutions on it.
Had the U.S. put an end to its hostile policy toward the DPRK and treated it as a friendly state, it would have taken no such tough measure.
The U.S. forces’ permanent presence in south Korea and Japan, their ceaseless joint war drills, economic sanctions, etc. were the main factor that prevented the DPRK from exercising its self-restraint.
At a time when the DPRK was striving to develop its economy and improve the people’s living standard, the U.S. and its followers hamstrung its efforts and violated its sovereignty.
The DPRK took measures to safeguard its sovereignty by itself despite repeated interference and pressure, winning praises from the world progressives.
As a matter of fact, the DPRK’s nuclear test was a product of the repeated pressure and violation of its sovereignty by the U.S. and its followers.
The U.S. and other Western countries, south Korea and Japan should make efforts for lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula, though belatedly.
