Wednesday’s edition of Rodong Sinmun, an official paper of North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK), has published an article calling for the replacement of the Korean War armistice deal with Seoul by a formal peace treaty, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported.

The paper, which effectively reflects the view of the ruling party and its leadership, said there was “a pressing need to replace the Armistice Agreement, which is a relic of the war, with a permanent peace regime.”

The article states that the armistice treaty, signed at the end of the 1950-1953 Korean War, benefits only the United States, and Washington’s move to hold onto the deal reflects its desire “to stifle the DPRK by force.”

“If the peace regime was created in the past, the current standoff over denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula would not have become a problem in the first place,” the article reads.
