The decision adopted by the party was not just a statement, but the proclamation of a “new strategic course”, which, according to the leader of the DPRK, concentrates “all forces on economic construction, is the most scientific and revolutionary line”.

 

“When we finished the putting into service of nuclear weapons, now we have eradicated the need for nuclear testing and the testing of ballistic missiles of average and distant radius of action, and therefore a testing ground for nuclear tests has exhausted its mission,” the KCNA quoted the words of Kim Jong-UN.

 

The head of the DPRK, as noted by the Agency, “highlighted the peace-loving position of our party aimed at making an active contribution to building a world free from nuclear weapons, in accordance with the common ideals and aspirations of mankind.” But at the heart of this policy remains “growth to the required level of military power of the DPRK and ensuring reliable security” of the North Korean state and its people.

Trump does not lose leadership

One of the first to Pyongyang’s decision reacted Donald trump, who, as he likes to do, told the world his opinion through Twitter. The reaction took him only about an hour. Even Seoul, for which relations with Pyongyang are of particular importance, reacted later.

 

“North Korea has agreed to freeze all nuclear tests and close a large landfill. This is very good news for North Korea and the whole world — great progress! I’m waiting for our summit, ” trump wrote on Twitter.

 

An important clarification here is that the new course of the DPRK was adopted by the party on the eve of the summit scheduled for April 27 with South Korea, as well as the planned meeting of Kim Jong-UN with US President Donald trump in may or early June.

“As of April 21, North Korea will finish nuclear tests and launches of Intercontinental ballistic missiles… Nord will close the nuclear test site in the Northern part of the state in order to prove its commitment to suspend the test”, — quoted one of the first South Korean Agency Renhap news of the official North Korean Agency tstak.

 

The text of the statement of the order of the Plenum, popular KCNA, refined, in fact, that most of the DPRK joins international efforts all-embracing halt nuclear testing, as it takes a necessary part of the mass of nuclear disarmament. This was a significant clarification — the DPRK does not renounce the nuclear-missile Arsenal itself, but “until there is a nuclear danger or nuclear provocations to our state, we will certainly not use nuclear weapons and under no circumstances will we broadcast nuclear weapons and nuclear technologies to other States”.

 

The party’s order was not an elementary statement, but the proclamation of a “fresh strategic course”, which, according to the DPRK’s favorite, focuses “all forces on financial construction, gives itself the most scientific and revolutionary line”.

 

“In the criteria, when we finished the putting into service of nuclear weapons, now we have escaped the need for nuclear testing and the testing of ballistic missiles of average and distant radius of influence, and therefore a testing ground for nuclear tests spent their own mission,” the KCNA quoted text Kim Jong-UN.

 

The head of the DPRK, as that Agency, “highlighted the friendly deal of our party, aimed at bringing an active contribution to the construction of a world free of nuclear weapons, in relation to the joint standards and aspirations of mankind.” But in the base of such politicians remains “the rise to the importance of the military force of the DPRK and ensuring reliable protection” of the North Korean country and its people.

 

“All forces will focus on the struggle for the development of a strong socialist economy, a radical increase in the value of the life of the people by mobilizing human and material resources of the country,” the Plenum of the Central Committee decided.

Trump does not lose leadership

One of the first to the conclusion Pyongyang responded Donald trump, who, as he prefers to create, told the world his point through Twitter. The reaction took him all within an hour. Including Seoul, for which business with Pyongyang has a special meaning, responded later.

 

“North Korea has agreed to preserve all nuclear tests and to shut up a large landfill. This is quite good announcements for North Korea and the whole world — tremendous progress! I expect our summit, ” trump wrote on Twitter.

Due to the efficiency of trump, Seoul became only 2 city of Moscow, which commented on the conclusion of its own Northern neighbor. “The conclusion of the DPRK, talking about the important progress in the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula… will do It quite flattering circumstances for the furor of the upcoming inter-Korean summit and the summit of Korea-USA”, — stated in the message of administration of the President of South Korea.

 

The statement also emphasizes that South Korea will make every effort to prepare for the summit, in fact, “it is necessary to lay the road to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the establishment of a lasting peace” in the area.

 

Skepticism of the Land of the rising sun

Japan took the honorable third space, but became 1 government, drew concern on the duality of the conclusion of Pyongyang to renounce the tests, but to save Arsenal. A large Association imposed penalties in front of the DPRK for the development of nuclear-missile technologies, and the goal was to prevent Pyongyang from obtaining such a weapon. As a consequence, the abandonment of testing while maintaining the DPRK’s Arsenal is hardly obliged to be considered as a one hundred percent triumph of a large society in the pressure on Pyongyang.

 

“The DPRK’s approval is not considered good. In particular, for the land of the rising sun, when the statement (North Korea — ed.) did not mention either the abandonment of ballistic missiles of medium and small radius of impact, or the abandonment of nuclear weapons. This is not enough — ” NHK TV channel quotes the approval of the leaders of the Japanese defense Ministry to the land of the rising sun Itsunori Onodera, who is visiting Washington.

 

Onodera even what exactly “in the moment is not the time for international companies to ease the pressure on the DPRK”.

 

The foreign Minister of the country of the rising sun Taro Kono strongly said that the DPRK itself is obliged to finish the denuclearization by 2020 before replacing the governments of the country of the rising sun, USA and South Korea. “We would like this to be completed under the administration (President of the USA Donald) trump, (President of South Korea) mun (Jae-In) and (Prime Minister of the country of the rising sun Shinzo) Abe, “Kono said in an interview with the Nikkei newspaper.

 

For the first time, one of the officials of the United States, the land of the rising sun or South Korea called the true maximum period for the denuclearization of the DPRK. The newspaper does not eliminate the fact that the issue of the denuclearization of North Korea by 2020 has the opportunity to be raised during the planned inter-Korean summit, and at the summit of the favorites of the DPRK and the United States.

 

“There is no substitute for power in North Korea. The more time passes, that it is more likely to do something … North Korea will not be awarded anything without certain and irreversible steps”, – said the head of the foreign Ministry of the country of the rising sun.

 

At this Prime Minister of the country of the rising sun Shinzo Abe spoke in a more pliable key. He welcomed the DPRK’s statement, calling it” moving forward”, but together with that he pointed out that he was following in his footsteps to”lead to the absolute, verifiable and irreversible elimination of nuclear weapons, instruments of global loss and ballistic missiles.”

 

“During the Japan-us summit, we discussed how to respond to all sorts of configurations in the DPRK,” — quotes Abe Kyodo Agency.

 

He added that Tokyo wants to work together with the United States, as well as in the framework of trilateral cooperation with the USA and South Korea.
