KCNA Commentary Refutes Declaration of G-8 Summit

Pyongyang, July 2 (KCNA) -- The declaration adopted at the Canada G-8 summit criticized the DPRK, linking it with the "Cheonan" case.

This can not but be an unjust and arbitrary practice openly perpetrated by the G-8 against the DPRK, dancing to the tune of the United States.

The declaration pulled up the DPRK, though indirectly, referring to south Korea's "results of investigation" into the "Cheonan" case. This is an insult to the DPRK.

The results are beset with doubts and contradictions. Heads of state of G-8, however, hastily handled the case in a deliberate manner only to prove that they sought a sinister political purpose.

A touch-and-go situation is now prevailing on the Korean Peninsula.

The inter-Korean relations have been completely cut off and the situation is inching close to a war phase. It is highly regretful that the G-8 summit played into the hands of specified forces at this sensitive moment, serving as a tool for attaining their political purpose while paying no heed to regional and world stability.

The DPRK flatly rejects the declaration as a clumsy hackwork which admits of no argument.

What is of paramount importance at present is to pay primary attention to objectively probing the truth behind the case of warship sinking in face of the U.S. high-handed and arbitrary practices and make correct judgment favorable for peace and stability of the region.

Should some forces persist in their anti-DPRK moves as evidenced by the G-8's hasty adoption of the declaration critical of the DPRK based on unilateral "results of investigation", not on objective confirmation of the truth, they will have to bear full responsibility for the ensuing consequences.

It is a pipe dream of a fool to try to shift the responsibility for the case of warship sinking on to the DPRK and put international pressure upon it.
