Confrontation and Dialogue, War and Peace Cannot Go Together: KCNA Commentary

Pyongyang, April 18 (KCNA) -- High-ranking U.S. officials are vying with each other to talk about dialogue.

They said that "the U.S. keeps the door open to north Korea so it may make other option", "Obama clarified more than once the U.S. is ready for dialogue and negotiations if north Korea takes part in a sincere discussion" and "the U.S. has no intention to attack north Korea".

This is, in fact, nothing but a base artifice to hide the true colors as the arch criminal who wantonly infringed upon the sovereignty of the DPRK and created the worst tension on the Korean Peninsula and evade the responsibility for it.

The U.S. completely lost the face to talk about dialogue with the DPRK as it has committed hideous criminal acts against the latter.

The U.S. prodded the UN Security Council into fabricating "a resolution on harsh sanctions" against the DPRK in wanton denial of its right to satellite launch, pushing the situation on the peninsula to the brink of a war.

It is staging joint military drills with huge armed forces and nuclear attack means involved, posing the biggest-ever threat of nuclear strike to the DPRK.

Even at this moment when the U.S. is talking about "dialogue", its strategic nuclear strike means including super-large nuclear-powered carriers are watching for a chance to make a preemptive strike, operating in waters off the peninsula. Nuclear submarines and the U.S. forces including thousands of U.S. marines are being rapidly dispatched to the operational theatres on the peninsula.

The U.S. talk about dialogue at this time is nothing but a cunning behavior to pass the buck for the situation inching close to a war to the DPRK and a disgusting deceptive artifice to mislead the public opinion.

The U.S.-touted dialogue goes to clearly prove once again that its scenario for a nuclear war remains unchanged as it is keen to invade the DPRK by force of arms while stepping up the preparations for a war behind the scene of dialogue. This once again confirms its nuclear war policy towards the DPRK and is another unpardonable hostile act against it.

It is by no means fortuitous that the U.S. put forth the restraint on the DPRK's "additional provocations", fulfillment of international commitments and measure for denuclearization as preconditions for dialogue.

In a nutshell, the U.S. wants the DPRK to dismantle its nukes, the treasured sword for self-defence, before starting dialogue.

It is absurd rhetoric for the U.S. to urge the DPRK to abandon all its rights and capabilities for self-defence in face of the former's brandishing of nuclear stick and come out for dialogue with bare hands.

By origin, the process for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula had been derailed by the moves of the U.S. for a nuclear war and finally had come to an end.

The U.S. has shipped nuclear weapons into south Korea since several decades ago and threatened the DPRK with nukes, spawning the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula. It is illogical and preposterous for it to urge the DPRK to dismantle its nukes and commit itself to their "nonuse."

The dialogue between the DPRK and the U.S. should strictly be based on the principle of respect for sovereignty and equality.

There can be no genuine dialogue between the DPRK and the U.S. unless the latter rolls back its hostile policy toward the former and lifts its nuclear threat and blackmail against Pyongyang.

Confrontation and dialogue, war and peace can never go together.

The DPRK will escalate its military counteractions for self-defence unless the U.S. halts its nuclear war drills and pulls back its war hardware for aggression from south Korea.
