Immediate Scrapping of Provocative "Emergency Plans" Urged

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

    Pyongyang, March 3 (KCNA) -- The "emergency planning chairman" of south Korea at the National Assembly shortly ago let loose the awfully provocative remarks that "it is under discussion to include in the Chungmu plan, the south Korea-U.S. joint operation plan, etc. clauses on coping with a nuclear situation" as "they were worked out to confront a contingency in the north on the premise of a non-nuclear situation". The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland Wednesday published its information bulletin No. 897, which says his remarks turned a revealing light on the fact that the south Korean authorities have not scrapped but are keeping the "emergency plans to cope with a sudden change of the situation" which are full of malice against the north and, furthermore, are promoting the sinister scheme to renew them, taking issue with the north's possession of nuclear weapons, a shield for national defense and treasured sword of justice.
    This is an intolerable challenge to the desire of Koreans to achieve the peace and reunification of the country with cooperation for national independence and cooperation for peace against war and an unpardonable hostile act toward the north, the same nation and dialogue partner. The information bulletin said, and went on: The reality proves once again that the south Korean authorities' fond talk about "respect for the June 15 joint declaration", "peace and co-prosperity" and "radical development of inter-Korean relations" are nothing but a buffoonery to mislead home and foreign public opinion and conceal their ugly colors and they are still watching for a chance with a dagger in the bosom.
    The south Korean authorities should stop acting rashly and abandon the extremely provocative "emergency plans" at once, pondering over the grave consequences to be entailed by their anti-north confrontation moves, instead of dreaming an impracticable dream with outcries over "contingency in the north" and "nuclear situation".
