It is of an urgent necessity to establish a peace-keeping regime if the confrontation is to be defused on the Korean Peninsula, an official newspaper of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said Thursday.

The Korean people desire peace and stability more ardently than any others, but the most acute military confrontation in the world persists on the peninsula, the Rodong Sinmun said in a commentary.

Huge U.S. forces are permanently present in South Korea and in its vicinity, watching for a chance to ignite a nuclear war against the DPRK anytime, it said.

It is the strong military power of the DPRK that helped prevent the second Korean war, a nuclear war from breaking out on the peninsula, the commentary said.

The newspaper urged the United States not to pay lip-service to peace and stability on the peninsula but show its will by responding to the DPRK's proposal for concluding a peace treaty.
