Pyongyang, August 30 (KCNA) — Some quarters of the international community are spreading unrealistic mistaken rumors as regards the prospect of the fourth round of the six-party talks, contending that the stand of the DPRK “is illustrative of Pyongyang’s customary blackmail tactics” and it is “aimed to gain time while waiting for the U.S. presidential election returns.”
Commenting on this, a Rodong Sinmun news analyst Monday says:
The United States is the very one knocking the bottom out of the six-party talks and throwing hurdles in the way of the solution to the nuclear issue.
It can never evade the responsibility for this.
One should not get on the nerves of the dialogue partner or threaten it if the talks are to run a smooth course. But, on the contrary, the United States is laying a huge stumbling block in the way of the talks, while deliberately increasing the military tension on the Korean peninsula. As a result, the process of the talks has moved backward and it is sinking into a crisis of collapse. The point is whether the U.S. has the will to drop its hostile policy toward the DPRK, or not.
The DPRK and the U.S. are standing in the most acute hostile relations on the world political arena. The main obstacle in settling the nuclear issue between them and ensuring regional peace and security is the unjustifiable hostile policy of the U.S. toward the DPRK. Herein lies the reason why the prospect of the fourth round of the talks is beclouded.
The U.S. should build again the foundation of the six-party talks it has demolished by showing its will to actually renounce its hostile policy toward the DPRK. This is the urgent duty of the U.S. and the key to the resumption of the talks.
