DPRK's Principled Stand on Inter-Korean Dialogue Remains Unchanged: CPRK Spokesman

Pyongyang, April 18 (KCNA) -- There will be neither dialogue nor improved relations between the north and the south as long as south Korea persists in such hostile acts as enforcing sanctions against the DPRK, taking part in the acts to stifle it, deliberately accusing it of its space development and bolstering of its nuclear force and staging war exercises after massively introducing sophisticated war hardware into south Korea, declared a spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) in a statement issued on Thursday.
Recently the south Korean authorities expressed "regret and disappointment" at the DPRK's rejection of their proposal for dialogue, the statement said, and went on:
They went the lengths of making impudent remarks that "the north should make a right choice", jabbering that "it chilled the atmosphere and overturned the table".
Had they have a true will to have dialogue, they should have halted all acts of hurting the dignity of the DPRK, stopped the north-targeted war exercises and smear campaign and given assurances to the nation that they would not resort to such hostile acts in the days ahead.
However, a spate of invectives slandering the celebrations of the Day of the Sun was let loose and such thrice-cursed crime as infringing upon the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK was committed in the heart of Seoul in broad daylight at the tacit connivance of the south Korean authorities.
Puppet minister of Defense Kim Kwan Jin and other warmongers kicked up confrontation hysteria, crying out for "a total war, strong counteraction and stern and decisive punishment."
Worse still, the chief of Chongwadae let loose a whole string of jargons seriously hurting the dignity of the north. She blustered that "it is necessary to terminate the vicious cycle of renegotiating and assisting the north when it poses a threat and perpetrates a provocation and that such threat and provocation would isolate the north."
All these facts prove that the south Korean authorities were compelled to propose dialogue under the pressure of the public, having no sincere heart.
They clearly indicate that the proposed dialogue is nothing but a deceptive artifice to cover up their act of having pushed the situation to a state of war, tide over the crisis and mislead the public opinion in a bid to shift the responsibility onto the north.
The south Korean authorities are employing sleight of hand as regards the issue of the Kaesong Industrial Zone but the crisis there most vividly reflects the present state of the inter-Korean relations.
They, along with their American master, are still talking such nonsense as "denuclearization" in the north in a bid to make a bargain over its nukes. They would be well advised to drop such daydream.
As a matter of fact, the DPRK was technically at a nuclear war with the U.S.
The U.S. has posed a threat to the DPRK with all its ultramodern nuclear strategic weapons and hardware.
This showdown was sparked by the U.S. and other hostile forces as they took issue with the DPRK over its legitimate satellite launch for peaceful purposes.
The confrontation maniacs should properly understand that the principled stance of the DPRK will never change, warned the statement.
