KCNA Blasts Japan's Hectic Diplomacy over "Issue of Abduction"

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

   Pyongyang, May 17 (KCNA) -- Senior politicians and diplomats of Japan are busy with diplomacy at home and abroad aimed at eliciting "international cooperation" over the "issue of abduction." They never miss the chance to raise this issue no matter what foreign VIPs they meet at home and at any international forum.
    This hectic diplomacy of Japan prompts everyone to think that the "issue of abduction" has become a topic of its politics and diplomacy.
    In a word, Japan is using the issue as a justification and lever for playing the role of a shock force in putting into practice the U.S. plot against the DPRK.
    Both the U.S. and Japan are colluding with each other in the smear campaign over the issue as they share interests in pursuing a hostile policy towards the DPRK.
    The Japanese reactionaries consider their racket over "the issue of abduction" favorable for pleasing their American master because they hype up this matter and work hard to build up public opinion, keeping pace with Washington's "human rights" row.
    U.S. Secretary of State Rice, referring to the meeting of President Bush with families of "Japanese abductees" on April 28, said the meeting is an indication of the U.S. commitment to settle the "abduction issue" and "human rights issue" and assured Japan that the U.S. would continue paying attention to the matter.
    Addressing a press conference held in its wake, she asserted that no friends are better than Japan.
    As a matter of fact, no country is as sincere in helping the U.S. as Japan.
    The ultra-right conservative forces of Japan are seeking various aims in the "issue of abduction." The most important of them is to play a role in executing the U.S. policy to stifle the DPRK in a bid to please the Uncle Sam. Precisely for this reason no sooner had Washington cried out for "sanctions" than Tokyo echoed it.
    Japan's base behavior to solicit cheap sympathy with its racket over the issue, which had already found a solution, from other allies of the U.S., pursuant to its hostile policy towards the DPRK, once again helps the international community understand the political reality in Japan, a political dwarf.
    Japan is ill-famed for its evil doings as it has not yet apologized for so many crimes though more than half a century has passed since its defeat. It is quite natural that Japan is censured by the international community for its ugly image and unlimited ambitions.
    Japan's oft-repeated hue and cry over the "issue of abduction" reminds one of a prostitute who claims to be chaste.
