FM spokesman calls US DPRK pol­icy a fail­ure

The Pyongyang Times - - Front Page -

“The US should clearly re­al­ize, though be­lat­edly, that its DPRK pol­icy is a fail­ure as it has a fun­da­men­tally wrong view­point on the coun­try,” said the DPRK For­eign Min­istry spokesman in a state­ment on May 30.

Re­fer­ring to the US’ uni­lat­eral re­jec­tion of the DPRK’s dia­logue ini­tia­tive, he said that though the DPRK clar­i­fied its stand to re­move war risks and ease ten­sions on the Korean penin­sula and made a pro­posal of sus­pen­sion of joint mil­i­tary ex­er­cises for that of nu­clear test at the out­set of the year, the US re­fused to hold dia­logue re­lated to the of­fer, only re­spond­ing with the en­force­ment of mil­i­tary drills.

The US has even­tu­ally blown up the Korean penin­sula de­nu­cle­ariza­tion by per­sist­ing in “strate­gic pa­tience” and provoca­tive war games as the twin pil­lars of its anti-DPRK pol­icy, and is now try­ing to shift the blame onto the DPRK, but it is too late, he said.

He as­serted that the only way to pre­vent war be­tween the DPRK and the US is for the DPRK to build up its de­fence ca­pa­bil­i­ties to main­tain the equi­lib­rium of forces, given that there is no el­e­men­tary con­fi­dence be­tween them, but deep-seated mu­tual dis­trust and en­mity.
