Revelation of Japanese reactionaries’ hysterics of anti-DPRK hostility

November 23, 2022

Japanese reactionaries are inciting the Japanese people to extreme hostility to the DPRK.

They are persisting with threats, violence and abuse against the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) and students at Korean schools in Japan on the pretext of the DPRK’s powerful military reaction.

Stunned by the might of the DPRK’s absolute weapon flying over its archipelago, Japan is so base as to take Koreans in Japan hostages in an attempt to dampen their will to bolster up the military capability.

The reckless acts against an overseas compatriots’ organization and compatriots of the dignified DPRK are a grave act of politically-motivated provocation against it and a revelation of their hostile hysterics against the DPRK.

Japan is now working viciously to weaken the ever-increasing DPRK’s self-defensive military capabilities.

While spreading the rumours about “threat from the surroundings” so often, Japan is persistently building up the public opinion against the DPRK. And together with the US and south Korea, it keeps staging the adventurous joint naval and air drills targeting the DPRK.

At the beginning of this year, Japan proposed waging joint military exercises against the DPRK in and around the Korean peninsula, and vociferated about “joint prevention” against the “threat” from the DPRK at the meetings with the US and south Korea.

Japan held a joint drill with an aircraft-carrier task force of the US Navy and an exercise of sharing the ballistic missile information in the East Sea of Korea in April. In September and October, it also waged a combined antisubmarine warfare drill aimed at detecting and attacking the DPRK's submarines, a combined drill involving the nuclear-powered carrier USS Ronald Reagan in the East Sea of Korea and a joint exercise with the US Air Force in the sky over the East Sea of Korea. These war games were just part of the military drills of aggression in which Japan took part this year.

At the US-Japan-south Korea tripartite summit a few days ago, Japan branded the DPRK’s legitimate and just countermeasures, incited by their military threat, as a “provocation” and talked about a “powerful and determined reaction”.

Under the pretext of the DPRK’s self-defensive military reactions, Japan is putting spurs to the moves to turn itself into a military power and making preparations for a war of aggression.

This being a hard reality, Japan is describing itself as a “peace” force in the international arena. And it is gagging the media in a bid to conceal its involvement in the military provocations and hurling a string of abuses at Koreans in Japan to tarnish the DPRK’s image.

If Japan persists in the anti-DPRK and anti-Chongryon moves, only its policy of hostility to the DPRK and reactionary true colours will be exposed to the world.
