DPRK Condemns US War on Terror as Pretext for World BuildingWikiMedia CommonsAsia & Pacific01:03 08.10.2017(updated 01:18 08.10.2017) Get short URL5462100
Pyongyang has accused Washington of using its ongoing War on Terror to manipulate governments and other entities around the world.
Alongside a foiled attempt on the life of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in April, the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea (DPRK) claims that actions by Washington continue to destabilize global organizations and governments, calling the US “the main reason international terrorism is not yet annihilated,” cited by Newsweek.
An article published Friday by Pyongyang’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) asserted that the DPRK representative to the 72nd United Nations General Assembly explained his country’s “principled stand” regarding how counterterrorism is defined by the UN Office of Counter-Terrorism, a working group in which North Korea was involved in creating.
The KCNA article stipulated that “the main reason international terrorism is not yet annihilated,” is ongoing — and increasing — global military and diplomatic meddling by the Pentagon and Washington.
Pyongyang’s UN representative also documented a failed plot to kill Kim and overthrow the government in Pyongyang.
“In May this year, a group of heinous terrorists who infiltrated into our country on the orders of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the US and the South Korean puppet Intelligence Service with the purpose of carrying out a state-sponsored terrorism against our supreme headquarters using biological and chemical substance were caught and exposed,” asserted KCNA.
“This palpably shows the true nature of the US as the main culprit behind terrorism,” the article observed.
DPRK representatives have also claimed that Washington contributes to global instability through its intended use of biochemical weapons to target specific leaders noted to be unfriendly to the US.
“The US has fully revealed its criminal scenario to make no scruple of using biochemical weapons” to take down the current leadership structure in Pyongyang, according to KCNA. The DPRK has also long accused Washington of husbanding a “Plan Jupiter,” in the form of a biochemical attack to kill Kim and his cabinet.
The claims of a Plan Jupiter have not been substantiated, although the often contentious debate about US international meddling in politics and intelligence shows no signs of going away.
The Friday KCNA report claimed that Washington “changes its colors” similar to a “chameleon” in attempts to justify government overthrow, particularly in the Middle East.
KCNA further opined that Washington interchangeably used counterterrorism and nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction as a means to defend ongoing military occupations and invasions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya, cited by Newsweek.
