KCNA: "We are shocked that the current defense secretary of Britain, right after taking the office, expressed his view that our state nuclear force poses a 'threat to London'…It is no coincidence that he is criticized even at home as a person without basic military knowledge."
KCNA: "'America first policy' which the gang of Trump is crying out loudly about is nothing but the proclamation of aggression aimed at holding sway over the world according to its taste and at its own free will."
KCNA: "The gang of Trump likes to pose itself as if its country is a world superpower. However, the U.S. is nothing but a corpse going to the grave."
KCNA: "The international society should keep vigilance against the maneuvers of the gang of Trump to invade and control the DPRK with force by igniting a nuclear war at any cost in the Korean peninsula."
KCNA: "It is also a criminal document which clearly reflects the gangster-like nature of Trump who likes to create trouble and fish in that troubled waters."
KCNA: "The 'National Security Strategy' written and announced by the Trump administration is, indeed, a typical outcome of the Yankee-style arrogance seeking total subordination of the whole world to the interests of the U.S."

KCNA: "The Trump administration is inciting an extremely confrontational atmosphere by even concocting a plot against us at this delicate moment when the situation on the Korean peninsula is at the crossroads of nuclear war or peace."
KCNA: "As we have clearly stated on several occasions, we have nothing to do with cyber-attack and we do not feel a need to respond, on a case-by-case basis, to such absurd allegations of the U.S."
KCNA: "The U.S., a source of all social evils and a state of global cyber-crimes, is unreasonably accusing the DPRK without any forensic evidence. This cannot be construed otherwise than an expression of its inveterate repugnance towards the DPRK."
KCNA: "The United States is now inciting the global confrontation against us by forcibly linking to the DPRK the latest incident of cyber-attack which has given rise to a great international outcry."
