S. Korean Unification Minister's Reckless Remarks Blasted

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

Pyongyang, July 12 (KCNA) -- Hyon In Thaek, puppet minister of Unification of south Korea, in his recent "morning lecture," let loose reckless remarks against the DPRK. Terming "no nukes, opening and 3,000 dollars", a policy of confrontation with the DPRK, "a policy for co-existence and co-prosperity of the south and the north," he asserted that the inter-Korean relations collapsed because the north "pursued a hard-line policy, failing to understand its true motive", and this was what he called "a mistake."

He went the lengths of openly agitating confrontation with the DPRK, blustering the warship case was "too serious case to be overlooked and glossed over" and crying out for "diplomatic and economic measures."

The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea in its information bulletin No. 961 issued on Monday said:

Hyon's reckless remarks are one more serious provocation to the DPRK and challenge to the public opinion at home and abroad demanding the puppet group make a switchover in its "policy toward the north" and defuse the tension.

It was none other than Hyon who derailed the north-south dialogue and blocked visits and contacts between the north and the south in denial of the June 15 joint declaration. Yet, this guy dared talk about somebody's "responsibility" and "mistake." This shows with added clarity what brazen-faced anti-reunification and confrontation maniac Hyon is.

Hyon accused the DPRK of reacting to the new U.S. administration's "moves likely to make a turning point" with a tough stand, asserting that it was "a mistake." This cannot but be reckless remarks betraying his despicable true colors as a top class stooge of the U.S. His malignant mud-slinging at the DPRK is nothing but his last-ditch effort to get rid of the situation where he is fated to be fired for being chiefly accountable for the failure in south Korea's "policy toward the north" and collapse of the inter-Korean relations.

No matter what excuses Hyon may make, he can never evade the responsibility for having pushed the inter-Korean relations to the present collapse.
