Pyongyang, January 12 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Consultative Council for National Reconciliation (CCNR) Thursday made public a statement as regards the confrontation racket and war frenzy being kicked up by the south Korean authorities from the outset of the new year.
Denouncing the south Korean authorities' reckless act as an
intolerable mockery of the good faith and magnanimity shown by the DPRK
out of patriotism and a blatant challenge to the desire and wish of the
nation, the statement clarified the following principled stand of the
The south Korean authorities should sincerely look back on the
outcome of their persistent policy of confrontation with the fellow
countrymen in the north and make a fresh start with a decisive
resolution to break with the wrong past.
They should not brand our principled stand as a "sleight of hand to
shift over the responsibility for the stalemate of the south-north ties"
and "typical unification front offensive", but stop senseless act of
faulting the DPRK's Juche-oriented measures for bolstering defence

countrymen is a foolish act and their act will only invite their own
The south Korean authorities should bear in mind that sycophancy
toward the U.S. is not a way out for keeping their remaining days.
They should get awakened from the silly and ill-minded illusion that they can survive only in reliance on the U.S.
They should make a switchover in its policy, not by
"denuclearization of the north" but by denuclearization of the U.S., and
seek a way out in anti-U.S. struggle, not in pro-U.S. acts.
The south Korean authorities should immediately respond to the
north's patriotic proposal for mending the inter-Korean relations and
opening an avenue to independent reunification.
They should promptly stop any act of going against the desire of the nation and challenging the wishes of the times.
They should clearly understand that it is the wisest act and the
ultimate option to hold hands of good faith and magnanimity held out by
the DPRK out of its desire to join efforts in the road of reunification,
not asking about the wrong past.
If the south Korean authorities continuously resort to the
confrontation racket and war moves going against the aspiration and
demand of the nation and the trend of the times, they can never escape
the severe punishment by the nation. -0-
