Pyongyang, May 22 (KCNA) -- The international community is hailing the efforts of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to promote detente and build wonderful future in the Korean peninsula.
Kim Jong Un, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, has put the DPRK on the status of a world-level strategic state with his extraordinary wisdom, matchless courage and outstanding political caliber, and is defending peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and the region.
He made a strategic decision to end the inglorious history of the DPRK-U.S. relations and received U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo who visited the DPRK. And he took a series of crucial and bold steps for peace and stability of the peninsula and the world.
In this regard, world public and media comment that the present phase of dialogue has been provided by the tremendous national power of the DPRK and its pro-active efforts.
Kazbek Taysaev, secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, at a joint seminar of political parties and organizations of Russia said that peaceful environment has now been created on the Korean peninsula thanks to Kim Jong Un's bold decision and positive efforts of the Workers' Party of Korea, adding that the world keenly realizes his greatness and the WPK's wise guidance in the picture of the DPRK making development on a daily basis.
The Canadian newspaper Toronto Star said that north Korea is actually steering the present situation and the U.S. is following it, adding: What the world should know is the fact that north Korea has won in the decades-long confrontation with the U.S. and the U.S. and its allies have been passively reacting to north Korea's policy. North Korea is a small country but it is a military power and plays a leading role.
The African Regional Committee for Friendship and Solidarity with the Korean People headquartered in Nigeria in an article posted on its internet homepage said that when compared with the U.S. boasting of the "mightiness" of its economic potentials and military capabilities, the DPRK is a small country incomparable with it in territory and population. But the DPRK is led by HE Kim Jong Un with unusual stratagem and pluck and it has the army and people remaining true to their cause.
This being a hard reality, there are some arguments describing the improvement of situation in the Korean peninsula as "result of hard-line diplomacy" of the U.S. and "result of sustained pressure". It seriously chills the atmosphere of the DPRK-U.S. dialogue and is of no help to the development of the situation.
Explicitly speaking, the present situation development is a change that has been positively made thanks to the matchless political savvy and strategic decision of the Supreme Leader of the DPRK, not just a passive response to pressure by someone.
It would be absolutely beneficial to the world peace and stability to have a proper understanding of the present phase of situation on the Korean peninsula. -0-
