Pyongyang, August 16 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea issued a statement on Sunday lashing out Park Geun Hye for letting loose a spate of invectives against the DPRK in an "address made on August 15."
The statement noted:
Park again let loose a litany of reckless remarks seriously
insulting the dignity and social system of the DPRK while talking about
"purge", "threat of provocation" and "isolation and destruction", far
from repenting of the thrice-cursed crimes of having driven the
inter-Korean relations into the worst catastrophe.
And she impudently behaved as if she were interested in dialogue and
cooperation while proposing the building of "a park for peace" in the
demilitarized zone, re-linking of railways and roads, reunion of
"divided families" and exchange of sports and culture.
This is no more than sheer sophism intended to tarnish the
international image of the dignified DPRK, pass the buck for the
deteriorated inter-Korean relations to it and justify her policy of
confrontation on the verge of bankruptcy as it is malignant outbursts of
the anti-reunification element hell-bent on the confrontation with the
compatriots in the north and sycophancy and treachery.
As well known to the world, the DPRK put forward landmark proposals
and took a series of important measures to bring about a great turn in
the inter-Korean relations this year, marking the 70th anniversary of
The puppet group, however, staged nuclear war exercises against the
north, leaflet scattering operations and kicked up human rights racket
and other rows against the DPRK, backed by the U.S. from the outset of
this year, deliberately bedeviling the inter-Korean relations.
Recently the puppet regime dampened the aspiration of all Koreans
and their efforts to make August 15 an important occasion of north-south
reconciliation and national unity by conducting anti-north
psychological broadcasting and leaflet scattering operations in the wake
of the fabrication of the "mine explosion," a poor farce.
It announced that it would stage large-scale Ulji Freedom Guardian
joint war drills aimed to preempt a nuclear strike at the DPRK together
with the U.S. from August 17 quite contrary to "defusing of military
tension" and "confidence-building" she mentioned in her address.
What should not be overlooked is that she malignantly hurt the
dignity and social system of the DPRK, by talking rubbish about "purge"
and "uneasiness of inhabitants" on the auspicious day of liberation.
This is an intolerable politically-motivated provocation and a
declaration of confrontation and war. Park's above-said utterances are
the height of hypocrisy.
She should abandon bad blood towards the compatriots in the north
and wild ambition to achieve "unification of social systems" before
vociferating about what she called for "cooperation."
If she stands for "defusing military tension" and "confidence-
building," she should not take issue with the north's nuclear deterrent
but halt the north-targeted war drills with U.S. nuclear hardware
involved as they are the root cause of escalating tension on the Korean
It is long since the DPRK has seen through the ulterior motive of Park.
The puppet regime barely exists through the flow of foreign capital,
without having anything of its own. Its talk about "leap" and the like
only makes even a cat laugh.
Park Geun Hye had better stop her rash acts, clearly mindful that
her despicable tongue-lashing would only bring her bitterer shame and
final ruin. -0-
