Pyongyang, April 8 (KCNA) -- The Trump administration on April 7 mounted a massive missile attack on an air force base of the Syrian government army under the pretext that it killed civilians by using chemical weapons.
A spokesman of the DPRK Foreign Ministry in a statement issued on April 8 termed this absolutely unpardonable as it was an undisguised act of aggression against a sovereign state.
The world clearly witnessed through the recent U.S. military attack on Syria who is disturbing peace, the statement noted, and went on:
The successive U.S. administrations have perpetrated strikes at those countries which do not have nukes only, styling themselves a superpower and the same is true of the Trump administration.
Some forces are loud-mouthed that the recent U.S. military attack on Syria is on action of warning us but we are not frightened by it.
What happened in Syria once again taught a bitter lesson that no one should have an illusion about the imperialists and one can defend oneself from the imperialist aggression only when one has one's strength.
Our tremendous military muscle with a nuclear force as its pivot serves as a treasured sword of justice capable of foiling the U.S. shameless high-handed and arbitrary practices and aggressive moves and protecting the sovereignty of the country and the right of the nation to existence.
The reality today goes to prove that any aggression should be countered with force only and we were entirely just when we have a bolstered our nuclear force remarkably.
We will bolster up in every way our capability for self-defence to cope with the U.S. evermore reckless moves for a war and defend ourselves with our own force. -0-
