Pyongyang, October 3 (KCNA) -- The chief executive of south Korea is busying herself with the moves to bring the situation on the Korean Peninsula now on the track of detente back to the one of confrontation and conflict.
In her "keynote address" made at the 70th session of the UN General
Assembly, she let loose a string of such invectives that the "north's
dismantlement of its nuclear weapons is a top priority task for building
a world without nuclear weapons" and the "north should make efforts to
have its inhabitants overcome difficulties through reform and opening,
rather than additional provocation." Not content with hurting the
dignity and social system of the DPRK while talking about "improvement
of human rights," she openly revealed her ambition for realizing
"unification through absorption" with the backing of foreign forces
under the pretext of "peaceful unification."
This is an unpardonable provocation against the DPRK and a heinous
confrontation racket chilling the hard-won atmosphere of improving the
The situation on the Korean Peninsula requires responsible
politicians to say and act to be helpful to the stable trend of the
situation in the spirit of the north-south agreement.
The DPRK is making all efforts to prevent armed conflict and rev up
the atmosphere of peace, stability, reconciliation and cooperation as
agreed upon at the north-south high-level urgent contact.
However, the south Korean authorities have not discarded bad habit
of confrontation but committed ceaseless hostile acts such as anti-DPRK
"human rights" racket and leaflet scattering since the north and the
south reached the agreement.
The invectives let loose by the present chief executive at the UN
arena marked the height of vicious provocations made by the south Korean
authorities irritating and denying the dialogue partner.
As far as the DPRK's war deterrent for self-defense, political
system and human rights touted by her are concerned, they are the core
issues it has consistently and firmly upheld for the sovereignty of the
country, the dignity of the nation, prosperity and happiness of all
generations to come.
The U.S. imperialists and their followers' demand that the DPRK
abandon these issues is little short of pressurizing the DPRK to appear
before them with bare hand and become their slaves.
The south Korean chief executive did not hesitate to make such
provocative remarks throwing a wet blanket over the efforts of all
Koreans for the improvement of inter-Korean relations and peace and
prosperity on the Korean Peninsula. This makes one draw a conclusion
that she is bereft of even elementary political sense and capacity to
The reckless confrontation racket of the south Korean authorities
has put not only the inter-Korean relations but the reunion of separated
families and relatives being pushed forward with much effort at peril.
The DPRK has no idea of showing leniency to those who are
persistently pursuing confrontation in disregard of its magnanimity to
The south Korean authorities would be well advised to act with
discretion, bearing in mind that their persistent confrontation racket
against the compatriots is as foolish an act as becoming themselves
targets of striking force of the Korean People's Army. -0-
