Pyongyang, December 10 (KCNA) — The Japanese and South Korean authorities attempted to turn the “three-nation summit” held in manila some time ago into a forum to discuss the Korean issue.
This was nothing but the last resort of those who have no say as regards the issue of the Korean peninsula.
It was ridiculous of them to assert that “three-nation summit” should be made regular and that it should discuss the Korean issue.
If the Korean issue is discussed at that “summit” in the future, it will not be of any help to solving it but make it complicated and put a brake on its solution.
The DPRK and the U.S. are the real parties concerned for the solution of the issue of the Korean peninsula and, to this end, multi-faceted talks are now under way between them.
Nevertheless, the forces who are trying to meddle in the Korean issue and fish in troubled waters and their followers are barring its settlement, hypocritically acting as if they were interested in its solution. It is Japan which is taking the lead in throwing hurdles in the way of solving the issue and it is the South Korean authorities who are following Japan.
An example of this is that Japan and South Korea attempted to create complexity in the solution of the Korean issue by peddling “six-party talks” in the past only to be ridiculed. The “three-nation summit” which they attempted to turn into a bargaining over the Korean issue proves that they are resorting to a foolish trick and seeking a sinister political aim instead of drawing lessons from their past failure.
Their ulterior purpose is to use the “summit” as a lever to bring up again the already bankrupt “six-party talks”.
The attempt to lead the issue of the Korean peninsula astray contrary to the fundamental interests of the Korean nation and peace and stability in Asia and the rest of the world and any compromise over it should never be tolerated as they are a disgraceful challenge to the times, history and human conscience.
