FM spokesman calls US DPRK policy a failure
“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.
