North Korea admits possibility of lifting moratorium on nuclear testing

55

The decision on the possible withdrawal from the moratorium on nuclear testing weapons and ballistic missiles was adopted at a meeting of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, which was chaired by Kim Jong-un.


The leadership of the DPRK came to the conclusion that the United States continues to pursue a hostile policy and does not renounce military threats to the country. In accordance with this, it is pointless to refuse tests. Pyongyang claims that the US authorities are trying to deprive North Korea of ​​the right to defend the state.

Washington is supplying the latest weapons to South Korea, is testing nuclear weapons near the Korean Peninsula, demonstrating a belligerent attitude towards Pyongyang. Therefore, it is better for the country to develop its own weapons, strengthening its defense capability. An exit from the moratorium on tests of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons can become a way to this.

If the DPRK makes such a decision officially, then the situation around the Korean Peninsula will become even more tense, as this will force not only the United States, but also Japan and South Korea to also move to more active actions to acquire and test new types of weapons.

Recall that over the past few days, the DPRK has conducted several test missile launches. Some missiles are designated as hypersonic. An article has appeared in the Hong Kong press that says that North Korean missiles are aimed at the target by the GLONASS navigation system.

    Washington is supplying the latest weapons to South Korea, is testing nuclear weapons near the Korean Peninsula, demonstrating a belligerent attitude towards Pyongyang.
    Therefore, the northerners will most likely make the final decision in favor of "the possibility of withdrawing from the moratorium on nuclear testing."

          This is a famous song about the life of the Chinese under Mao.
          The sun rises over the Yellow River
          The Chinese are on the field
          A handful of rice clenched in a fist,
          And they carry portraits of Mao.

          Chinese choir:
          Oo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!

        yes And here the conclusions are twofold. On the one side:
        From the Juche point of view, the closedness of the country is not fear, but self-sufficiency and the desire to preserve its originality.

        With another:
        Population of the country:
        1950 - 10 549 472
        1990 - 20 293 054

                  What is there to be afraid of? Prohibit abortion and contraception, and the children will start on their own. You can also introduce a tax on childlessness and a procedure in which people in old age are obliged to provide for children, and not the state, for reliability, so that people are vitally interested in having children. And you can still get a public censure or punishment for childlessness. And the children will go in droves.

    The leadership of the DPRK came to the conclusion that the United States continues to pursue a hostile policy and does not renounce military threats to the country.
    Which is completely obvious. The Americans, with their satellites in the neighborhood of the DPRK, are simply forcing the latter to take such actions.
    this will force not only the United States, but also Japan and South Korea to take more active steps to acquire and test new types of weapons.
    And today they are white and fluffy? Japan is actively reforming its self-defense forces (read the army with offensive capabilities), adopting new types of weapons. The ROK, thanks to the United States, is trying to keep up with the Japanese.

    The question is ... what else could they decide when they looked around more carefully, what was happening in the world ...
    There are enough rabid ones and they will defend themselves as best they can.
    It is unlikely that such a decision will please the neighbors, but they are also not playing doves of the world, this is a fact.

    Trump rubs his hands. Under him, the DPRK imposed a moratorium on the testing of ICBMs and nuclear weapons, under Biden it was canceled.
    US policy is based on constant pressure on other states. Even if you make concessions, the US pressure will not decrease. Presidents change, but State Department officials and law enforcement analysts continue to work.
    North Korean analysts have calculated that now is the right time to put pressure on the US. Russia puts forward ultimatums to the US in Europe. China issues US ultimatums on Taiwan in Asia. The United States cannot, as before, count on interaction with Russia and China in putting pressure on the DPRK. The latest political statements by the PRC on the DPRK in connection with the missile tests invite the UN and the "concerned" US and its allies to deal with other issues.
    This is probably the departure of the DPRK from the position of relying on its own forces, but times have changed and in response to American military alliances (NATO, AUKUS, etc.), a bloc of states is being formed that is ready for military influence on the United States.

    Washington supplies the latest weapons to South Korea, conducts nuclear weapons tests near the Korean Peninsula

    Here is the text in Russian from the KCTA: “In recent years alone, after the Korean-American summit, the United States has conducted hundreds of joint military exercises, which they themselves assured of stopping, and the testing of various strategic weapons. On the other hand, they imported ultra-modern offensive weapons to South Korea and transferred strategic nuclear weapons into the surrounding region of the Korean Peninsula, which seriously threatened the security of our state"
    There is nothing about the testing of nuclear weapons near the Korean Peninsula, but it is clearly stated: "they transferred strategic nuclear weapons to the surrounding region of the Korean Peninsula."
