Pyongyang, June 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country (CPRC) of the DPRK gave an answer to a question raised by KCNA on Wednesday as regards the fact that the present south Korean chief executive is taking issue with the DPRK.
The present chief executive of south Korea continues sinister acts while crying out for implementing the north-south agreement and settling the issues through dialogue after coming to power, the spokesman said, and went on:
In his official and unofficial appearances, in particular, the chief executive of south Korea unhesitatingly spat out wrong words taking issue with the DPRK over its measures for bolstering up nuclear force, claiming that "it is only international isolation and economic difficulties for the north to get from provocation" and "it is necessary to pressurize and apply sanctions against the north through strong cooperation with the international community", contrary to the commitment made by him while talking about the improved north-south relations in the past "presidential election".
In a "congratulatory speech" at an "event marking the 17th anniversary of the June 15 south-north summit" he groundlessly slandered the north, claiming that "the north's nuclear and missile development serves as serious concern threatening peace and stability of the region and international community" and "the north differs in words and acts by highly modernizing nuclear weapons and missiles while urging the south to respect and implement the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration."
It is needless to say that all these facts are trickeries to shift the blame for not improving the north-south relations on to the DPRK.
The south Korean chief executive is working hard to save his face by finding fault with the DPRK. But it is a self-destructive act of pushing him into a quagmire.
He should stop a reckless and foolish words and deeds irritating the other party and have a proper attitude toward the north-south relations, to begin with.
He should make a responsible start in the fatal crossroads of whether he would leave clean trace in the national history by improving the north-south relations with the stand of By Our Nation Itself and according to the mindset of the candlelight demonstrators or follow in the miserable footsteps of his predecessors by fawning favor with foreign forces and conservatives. -0-
