Pyongyang, October 30 (KCNA) — The chief executive of South Korea was closeted with the Foreign Minister of Japan in Seoul on October 25, according to Nihonkeijai Shimbun.
They agreed to push ahead with “improving relationship” with somebody with “hard-line and flexible stances.” They again called for “building a cooperation system” of surrounding countries including Japan, the U.S. and South Korea with the regard to the problem of the Korean peninsula.
This ill-intentioned political confab of those who do not want the genuine peace, stability and reunification of the Korean peninsula is a wanton infringement and challenge to the sovereignty and the peace efforts of the DPRK.
Ridiculous are their remarks that they would improve relations with the DPRK with “hard-line and flexible stances” because it has consistently maintained the foreign policy of independence, friendship and peace and the principle of achieving the independent and peaceful reunification through great national unity. Accordingly, they are provocative utterances of infringing upon our sovereignty and national dignity.
We have already rejected the offer for the so-called “multi-party security cooperation system” because it has nothing to do with the issue of the Korean peninsula calling for the withdrawal of U.S. troops and the conclusion of a peace agreement between the DPRK and the U.S. and, accordingly, it may complicate the issue.
Nevertheless, Japan and the South Korean authorities raised this issue again. This is an unpardonable challenge to the unanimous desire of the nation who wants to accomplish the peace and stability in the Korean peninsula and achieve the national reunification as soon as possible.
Worse still, the Japanese Foreign Minister’s remarks that “it is impossible for the DPRK to build the self-supporting economy” are unpardonable utterances intended to impair its high international prestige.
The Korean people will not overlook the fact that the South Korean chief executive bent on north-south confrontation and the Foreign Minister of Japan obsessed with the dream of reinvading the north without repenting of the past, held such a provocative confab to achieve their sinister political purposes and make them pay for their misdeeds.
