Pyongyang, April 1 (KCNA) -- Recently the south Korean puppet forces are asserting that more than half of those of the south side who had applied for the reunions of separated families and relatives passed away and the number of those passing away will increase in a crafty bid to give impressions that they are deeply concerned for the reunions.
A spokesman for the Central Committee of the Red Cross Society of the DPRK in a statement Friday said that lurking behind such assertion is a crafty trick to pass the blame for the failure to hold the reunions on to the DPRK and justify their policy of confrontation with the DPRK.
The statement said Park Geun Hye is entirely to blame for the failure to settle Red Cross humanitarian issues between the north and the south including the reunions of separated families and relatives.
It went on:
Last year we ensured the reunions of separated families and relatives on the occasion of the Harvest Moon Day despite so grim situation and made a reasonable proposal for fundamentally solving the issue of reunions of separated families and relatives at the December north-south authorities talks.
But the Park Geun Hye group categorically rejected the DPRK's just proposal but pushed the north-south relations into the lowest ebb at the instigation of its American master, thus cutting off all ways of settling humanitarian issues.
The north-south relations have been put to a total collapse by the Park Geun Hye group's frantic moves for escalating confrontation with its fellow countrymen and this resulted in totally blocking the reunions so much desired by separated families and relatives.
As long as the Chongwadae is bossed by traitor and confrontation fanatic Park Geun Hye without an equal, there can never be any humanitarian exchange including the reunions of separated families and relatives. This is our principled stand.
Trouble-maker of the nation Park Geun Hye will have to pay a very high price for rubbing salt into the wounds of the separated families and relatives again by bringing the north-south relations to a total collapse. -0-
