DPRK FM spokesman on what is going on inside U.S. congress

Pyongyang, December 8 (KCNA) — The spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea answered the question put by KCNA today over the heated congress debate on the Korean issue.


He said: Ill-boding moves are surfacing at the U.S. congress these days to vitiate the climate for improving the DPRK-U.S. relations.

At the Berlin talks held in September and November both sides agreed to hold high-level talks to discuss pending issues in near future, depending on a climate to be created for them.

However, republican congressmen are threatening to prevent the administration from carrying out its policy towards the DPRK even by invoking legislative power, calling for a “more tough measure” to force it to change its system.

Such assertions are casting shadow over the prospect of the DPRK-U.S. high-level talks.

It is hard to guess which is the true U.S. policy out of the conflicting policy options of the two parties towards the DPRK with the U.S. presidential election at hand.

We will never tolerate anyone’s policy if it is aimed to disarm or force us to change our system.

Such being the situation, it cannot but be a great adventure for us to discuss and decide such important affair as the issue of our missile capacity with the present U.S. administration which has only one year left.

In fact, we hear assertions made by different domains in the DPRK that the present U.S. administration’s policy towards the DPRK is intended to disarm and destroy it step by step in the end.

They prefer the republicans’ assertion to be adopted as a U.S. policy to compel them to confront the U.S. militarily.

In other words, we are fully prepared for both events:

Improvement of relations with the U.S. and showdown with it.

The point is which side the debate now going on in the U.S. on its policy towards the DPRK will favour.

We will watch the attitude of the U.S. congress and make our appropriate decision.
