Russian Paper Accuses U.S. of Refusing to Conclude Peace Treaty with DPRK
Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) -- The Russian newspaper Pravda on Aug. 15 carried an article "U.S. has no intention to conclude a peace treaty with DPRK".

Accusing the U.S. and its followers of conducting groundless false propaganda against the DPRK, the paper went on:

The purpose of the U.S. accusation against the DPRK is to paint the DPRK as an "axis of evil" again. To this end, everything is carefully orchestrated and all levers are used.

Terming the DPRK an "axis of evil" the U.S. regards it as a pretext for keeping its aggression forces and missile shield forward-deployed in the areas near the borders of Russia and China.

The U.S. has no intention to conclude a peace treaty with the DPRK.

It does not consider it necessary to conclude a peace treaty with Pyongyang. When a peace treaty is concluded, the U.S. Administration and munitions monopolies will lose a justification to keep its troops and build a missile shield in the Far East region.

Its scenario is clear and simple. It is to isolate the DPRK as a "rogue state" and create an environment for justifying its behavior in the United Nations and international community.

The U.S. is openly escalating the moves to stifle the DPRK in violation of international law.

Its strategic goal is to put the whole of the Korean Peninsula under its control and come closer to the borders of Russia and China and expand the sphere of influence in the Asia-Pacific region.
