PYONGYANG, October 12 (Itar-Tass) - North Korea’s nuclear weapons is the only guarantor of peace and security on the Korean Peninsula, the National Defense Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (NDC) said in a statement on Saturday.
Peace and security on the Korean Peninsula can be guaranteed by North Korea’s revolutionary armed forces, which have nuclear arms, “but not by a non-aggression pact,” North Korea’s National Defense Commission said in response to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s pronouncements that Washington was ready for talks and signing a non agreesion pact with North Korea, as soon as there were clear indications that Pyongyang was denuclearizing.
The statement says that the United States “should cancel sanctions” imposed against the DPRK and “stop military provocations, including military drills on the Korean Peninsula.”
The NDC recommended the United States to bear in mind that North Korea “is no longer a small and weak state that can be intimidated.” Apart from that, according to the statement, Washington “should not speak about talks and dialogue [with Pyongyang] setting any preliminary conditions.”
