A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK released the following statement on Monday:

The DPRK, who won a victory in the confrontation of rifles and A bombs in the war ignited by the U.S. in the1950s thanks to the Juche-based war methods and leadership of President Kim Il Sung, has registered a series of victories in an all-out stand-off with the U.S., demonstrating its might as an invincible nuclear power, a power with elite army, under the Songun guidance of leader Kim Jong Il and Marshal Kim Jong Un.

Much water has flown under the bridge since the hard-fought war in the 1950s but the U.S. remains unchanged in its wild ambition to invade the DPRK.

The U.S. has persisted in its arms buildup, war drills and military provocations on the Korean peninsula, seized with its invariable scenario to stifle the DPRK and dominate Asia and the world, far from drawing a lesson from the serious political and military defeats it sustained in the past Korean war.

It dared hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK, not content with escalating harsh sanctions and pressure upon it while massively introducing various strategic nuclear strike means and latest war hardware into south Korea. While stepping up the moves to deploy THAAD, the U.S. is busy staging ever more undisguised war drills.

Despite the international community’s concern and denunciation of the its saber-rattling pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a war, the U.S. is mulling staging Ulji Freedom Guardian joint military drills targeting the DPRK in August in league with the south Korean puppet forces.

If the U.S. opts for igniting the second Korean war in defiance of the strategic position of the DPRK and the trend of the times, it will never escape its final doom with no one left to sign a surrender document.
