Success of Ri Hui Ho's Pyongyang Visit Depends on S. Korean Authorities' Attitude

Pyongyang, July 8 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee issued a statement on Wednesday denouncing the dishonest forces of south Korea including the puppet conservative media for perpetrating the heinous provocative act of hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK over the issue of Ri Hui Ho's visit to Pyongyang.
    The statement said:
    The south Korean puppet group let the conservative media spread misinformation as regards Ri's visit. It claimed that Ri suggested an overland travel but the leadership of the north side proposed a travel by air in a bid to propagandize among south Koreans Pyongyang International Airport built by the leadership with much effort. And the group also let experts on north Korean affairs float the false story that the north adjusted the timing of Ri's visit to Pyongyang for "its political purpose."
    The puppet Ministry of Unification let loose a spate of vituperation that it would handle the issue of Ri's visit to Pyongyang with a "principle" despite the fact that officials concerned of the north and the south reached an agreement on it.
    This is an unpardonable serious provocation against the DPRK as the puppet group brought to light its sinister intention to stand in confrontation with the DPRK to the last, displeased with the process to improve the inter-Korean relations.
    And this cannot be construed otherwise than a deliberate and vicious obstruction to block Ri's visit by getting on the nerves of the DPRK.
    In connection with Ri's course of visit to Pyongyang, the DPRK told the Kim Dae Jung Peace Center that it was better for Ri to travel to Pyongyang by air to the best convenience of the guests as the Pyongyang-Kaesong Highway is under repair and the officials concerned of the south side fully agreed with it.
    It was reported that Ri accepted our sincere proposal with pleasure.
    The south Korean puppet group should not recklessly wag their tongues, clearly understanding that the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee and the Kim Dae Jung Peace Center just tentatively agreed on the issue of Ri's Pyongyang visit at the working-level contact and it has not been fully confirmed.
    We solemnly warn that if the south Korean conservative group persistently hurts the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK and makes provocations against it, the hard-won opportunity may be scuppered.
    Ri Hui Ho's successful Pyongyang visit depends on the behavior of the puppet group. -
