Rodong Sinmun S. Korean Authorities' Remarks about "Apology" Blasted

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

Pyongyang, June 20 (KCNA) -- A mandarin of the south Korean puppet Ministry of Unification in a recent press interview blustered that south Korea would not "gloss over" the "Cheonan" warship case and the Yonphyong Island shelling incident, adding there would be no "next phase" of the inter-Korean relations unless the two cases are settled. He went the lengths of vociferating about "the unification of the systems," talking this or that about "the three-phase unification proposal" touted by the south Korean authorities.

Rodong Sinmun Monday observes in a by-lined commentary in this regard:

The conspiratorial and provocative nature of the above-said two cases had already been brought to daylight. It was none other than the Lee Myung Bak group that spawned the two controversial cases.

They were an inevitable product of the anti-DPRK confrontation policy of the conservative group as it pushed the inter-Korean relations to a collapse by hamstringing the efforts to implement the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration.

The Lee regime's policy of confrontation is still pursued and there is no knowing when it will spark military provocations. How there be "next phase" of the inter-Korean relations under this situation? These relations have been practically frozen as the puppet forces are stepping up the moves to escalate the confrontation with the DPRK while groundlessly passing the buck for the two cases on it. The call for "admission and apology" made again by the above-said guy reminds one of a thief crying "Stop the thief!"

Their oft-repeated call for "apology" and the like is nothing but a subterfuge to shun the process to improve the inter-Korean relations and justify their policy of confrontation with the DPRK. Tight-cornered by the total failure of their policy toward the DPRK, the puppet forces are now working hard to evade the responsibility for the prevailing situation and intensify the confrontation racket in a bid to realize their wild ambition for "the unification of the systems."

This is evidenced by their talk about the above-said proposal.

If the south Korean authorities do not wish to see the situation inch close to an uncontrollable phase, they had better stop talking about nonsensical "apology" and respond to the DPRK's call as early as possible, urges the commentary.
