North Korea denounces 'anti-terror war' by United States

Pyongyang: North Korea on Monday denounced the "anti-terror war" by the US as an excuse to intervene in the sovereignty of other countries.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said the "anti-terrorism war" of the US is "state-sponsored terrorism and a new version of war of aggression against the anti-US countries for realising the imperialists' ambition for world domination".

"The US has wantonly infringed upon the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other countries while escalating the 'anti-terrorism war' worldwide," said the news agency.

It further said "the strategy and purpose of the US 'war on terrorism' was to train terrorists and steadily spread terrorism on one hand and perpetrate military intervention in sovereign states under the signboard of combating terrorism on the other", Xinhua news agency reported.

"The US forces, which were deployed mainly in Europe during the Cold War era, are being reorganised, centring around Asia in the new century," KCNA said.
