Pyongyang, November 8 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Tuesday gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA as regards the report that recently the U.S. chief executive again hurled mud at the supreme headquarters of the DPRK: According to foreign press reports, on Nov. 6 Bush, revealing again his inveterate rejection of the DPRK during his tour of Brazil, malignantly slandered our supreme headquarters with such unspeakable vituperation as "tyrant" and the like.
If this is true, what he uttered is a blatant violation of the spirit of the joint statement of the six-party talks which calls for "respect for sovereignty" and "peaceful co-existence."
It is hard to discern whether Bush is aware of the content of the joint statement or he intentionally pretends to be ignorant of it.
However, what is clear is that he does not know about the trend of the times at all.
These remarks made by the U.S. chief executive against the backdrop of his administration's intensified moves for economic and financial sanctions against us quite contrary to the spirit of the joint statement arouse our serious concern about the prospect of implementing the joint statement and deprive us of any trust in the negotiators of the U.S. side to the six-party talks who claim to be have been mandated by him.
We will never pardon whoever dares speak ill of our supreme headquarters in any case.
