PYONGYANG, October 25. /TASS/. The United States wants to achieve military supremacy in the Asia Pacific Region to "deter Russia and China," Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said in a statement published in the Rodong Sinmun newspaper on Tuesday.
In order to fulfil its strategic tasks, US "actively works on creating a trilateral military alliance in Northeast Asia together with Japan and South Korea" under the pretext of countering the North Korean nuclear missile threat. At the same time the alliance, described by KCNA as "the Asian version of NATO," is already taking shape. For instance, maneuvers with participation of military ships, helicopters and aircraft of the three countries were recently held near the South Korean island of Jeju.
KCNA warns that expansion of trilateral military cooperation between US, Japan and South Korea in Northeast Asia "will lead to arms race and acute deterioration of the situation in this region, where interests of great powers collide."
