PYONGYANG, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) newspaper Minju Choson Tuesday urged the United States to realize peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula by withdrawing its nuclear weapons in South Korea.
The United States should make the right decision to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, the paper said in an article in the newspaper.
The whole world is paying great attention to the position of the United States, which should withdraw all of its nuclear weapons deployed in South Korea and other places of the world, it said.
"Doing is more important than saying," the article said.
The United States has never abandoned its ambition to intimidate the DPRK with its nuclear presence, as it has intended to use nuclear weapons since the Korean War and has been regularly holding "nuclear war exercises against the DPRK" recently, it said.
The newspaper stressed that it was legitimate for the DPRK to strengthen its nuclear deterrent in order to deal with U.S. nuclear threats.
The newspaper said the DPRK proposed to replace the Armistice Agreement with a peace agreement, and would never change its firm position of building a stable peace.
The United States and South Korea are conducting joint military exercises coded Ulji Freedom Guardian scheduled for Aug.16 to 26, which involve more than 30,000 U.S. soldiers and 56,000 South Korean soldiers.
