Pyongyang, June 2 (KCNA) -- The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) released a statement on Thursday in connection with the fact that the situation of the country is getting worse due to the frantic confrontational racket of the south Korean authorities.
The army and people of the DPRK earnestly called on the south Korean
authorities to tide over the prevailing difficult situation and open up
a path to improving the relations through the publication of the joint
statement of the DPRK government, political parties and organizations
and the proposal to hold the talks between military authorities of the
north and the south, pursuant to the new line and policy for national
reunification set forth at the 7th Congress of the Workers' Party of
But the first answer given by the south Korean authorities to it was
far-fetched assertions such as "denuclearization first and dialogue
next", "propaganda offensive devoid of sincerity" and
politically-motivated vicious provocation and the first practical
response made by it was reckless firing with the mobilization of
Even at this moment the south Korean authorities are reacting to the
DPRK's just call for rejecting foreign forces and pooling efforts in
the idea of By Our Nation Itself with shameful servile attitude towards
the U.S. and sordid racket for confrontation with the fellow countrymen.
They are misleading the public opinion while challenging the
broadminded proposal made by the DPRK with intolerable provocations and
vicious vituperations against the dialogue partner.
Denouncing this as an unpardonable mockery of the patriotic measure
taken by the DPRK and a vicious challenge to the desire and wish of all
the fellow countrymen, the statement clarified the following principled
If the south Korean authorities act without discretion, far from
clearly studying the deep meaning of the patriotic appeal and proposal
made by the DPRK and making responsible option, our response to it will
be the toughest offensive aimed to push them deeper into the abyss and
lead them faster to self-destruction.
We already warned the south Korean authorities that if they join
hands with the DPRK with an intent to solve the reunification issue
first, they can be our partner but if they turn their back on us, the
result will be miserable.
We would like to stress that this warning is by no means an empty talk.
If the south Korean authorities respond to our just proposal for
defusing tension and ensuring peace on the Korean peninsula with
reckless military action, our response to them will be merciless
We will settle accounts by force only with those who find their way
out only in confrontation with the fellow countrymen and war,
indifferent to the improvement of the north-south relations and peace on
the Korean peninsula. This is our stand.
We have already clarified that we are ready both for a peaceful way
and for non-peaceful way in which all the bases of evils will be blown
up in a moment in order to achieve the reunification of the country.
The south Korean authorities should clearly be aware that the
physical reaction by non-peaceful way will bring us great victory in the
war for reunification but miserable defeat to them.
Those who ceaselessly spout out provocative invectives against the
DPRK will not be able to evade miserable fate, being branded as
confrontation maniacs and traitors to the nation.
They should bear in mind once again the meaningful advice and
serious warning served by the DPRK that evil words already made can not
be recollected and the tongue used for making those words will turn into
a dagger cutting off one's own neck.
All the Koreans and the international community are closely
following the attitude of the south Korean authorities while hoping for
the improvement of the relations and for the advent of detente on the
The south Korean authorities should not forget that if they persist
in frantic confrontation with the fellow countrymen while going against
the desire and wish of the n
