A newspaper of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Friday published a commentary condemning the speech of the Japanese prime minister at the G8 summit over the Cheonan incident.

The Japanese authorities should keep cautious on the Korean issue and adopt a "restrained position," said the Rodong Sinmun newspaper.

The "nonsense" of Naoto Kan was a dangerous move that could bring disaster to Japanese people, the newspaper warned.

If a war breaks out on the Korean Peninsula, Japan will surely be involved, the newspaper said.

The commentary said Japan's security depends on the situation on the Korean Peninsula to a large extent.

The Japanese move was aimed at realizing its ambition to launch aggression again, it said. If Japan continued its anti-DPRK plot with the United States, it would not avoid the consequence of "drawing fire against itself."

At the G8 summit held in Canada on June 25, Naoto Kan said the Cheonan incident was a provocation by the DPRK who should be held responsible for it.

On March 26, the South Korean frigate Cheonan, with 104 crew members aboard, sank near the island of Baekryeong off the west coast due to an unexplained explosion. Forty-six soldiers were killed.
