PYONGYANG, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- A leading newspaper of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Monday criticized the United States for its hostile policy against the Asian country.
A bylined article published on Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of the DPRK, said "the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK is bound to misfire" because the DPRK is the "biggest, dignified and invincible" power and its people could frustrate every U.S. move aimed at stifling the DPRK.
The DPRK army and people are united to defend their country and the socialist system and safeguard the dignity and sovereignty of the country, the article said.
The Korean People's Army (KPA) is capable of fighting any battles and its soldiers are well prepared. The army equipped with modern military hardware can also launch annihilating attacks on enemies and fight modern and protracted wars, it added.
The article warned that if anyone dares to provoke the DPRK, KPA would "obliterate the aggressors wherever they might be."
Finally, the article urged the United States to "understand its rival" and drop its hostile policy toward the DPRK. "To do so is the right step and would be beneficial for the United States," it said.
