Democratic Korea is Ready to Repel US Attack
Pyongyang, Apr 20 (Prensa Latina) The Democratic People''s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has warned Washington that it is ready to repel any ''super-mighty preemptive strike'' by the United States, according to Rodong Sinmun newspaper.
The daily points out that U.S. threats are intended to keep North Korea from improving its nuclear capabilities.
The newspaper replies statements by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence during his recent visit to the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas, where he announced that the era of strategic patience with Pyongyang had ended.
Pence suggested a possible military action such as the ones recently implemented in Syria and Afghanistan, and urged the DPRK not to test Washington's determination nor the power of its military might.
North Korean authorities hold that the dangerous security situation created is due to the reckless military provocation of the Trump administration.
The United States has recently dispatched an attack flotilla to the region, led by the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier, and announced the early deployment of the Thaad anti-missile system.
Such actions by the United States and its international allies, as well as continued military exercises on the coasts near the DPRK, are considered by Pyongyang as an open sign of hostility and constant threat.
Hence, the North Korean government orders frequent tests of its nuclear weapons program, in order to verify national defense strategies against possible attacks.
