Anti-DPRK Remarks of S. Korean Chief Executive Flailed

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

Pyongyang, November 17 (KCNA) -- The south Korean chief executive, in the talks with the U.S. president during the recent international meeting held in Seoul, let loose again absurd remarks that the resumption of the six-party talks will be possible only when the north shows by action its will to abandon its nuclear program and that it will be a starting point of development of inter-Korean relations to show sincere attitude toward the case of the warship "Cheonan". And he asked for the U.S. support and cooperation for south Korea's "policy towards the north".

Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says in a signed commentary in this regard:

His recent incoherent remarks clearly show once again who lays an obstacle to the resumption of the six-party talks and the improvement of inter-Korean relations.

It is clear to everyone that the six-party talks are for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula as a whole and, accordingly, an obligation for this matter can never be imposed on any specified state only.

To remove the nuclear threat to the DPRK is an action measure that the U.S. and south Korea should take on a priority basis for settling the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula.

The DPRK is ready for resumption of the six-party talks. The blame for failure to resume the talks is on the U.S. and south Korea.

The south Korean chief executive pretended to be interested in the six-party talks and the north-south relations, but he cannot hide his real intention. The trend of the times at present is going toward dialogue and detente.

The DPRK is ready for both dialogue and confrontation. It will decisively cope with the moves of the U.S. and the south Korean authorities aggravating the tension of the Korean Peninsula through confrontation and pressure.

Delaying tactics can never work. The south Korean authorities would be well advised to ponder over the fact that their reckless action against dialogue with the north is as foolish as lifting an axe to drop it on their own foot.
