Pyongyang, August 31 (KCNA) — U.S. President Bush recently mumbled that the United States was demanding the DPRK lay down arms and Under-secretary of State John Bolton let loose a string of rubbish, croaking that north Korea could expect improved relations with the U.S. only when it solved the issues of bio-chemical weapons and ballistic missiles and, furthermore the human rights problem, beside the nuclear issue.
Commenting on this, a Minju Joson news analyst today says:
This indicates that the U.S. new conservative forces do not take the trouble to conceal their wild design to overthrow the system of the DPRK through the “change of the system” and “disarmament” and are going to put it forward openly.
The DPRK cannot but take a serious note of the fact that they are promoting the criminal plot to pull down the DPRK in a dangerous stage with extreme hostile feelings toward it. It is closely watching the developments with high vigilance.
The DPRK very highly values the sovereignty and security of the country and the nation. It has never thought about improved DPRK-U.S. relations with its sovereignty encroached upon.
The DPRK can never have good relations with the U.S. as long as the latter refuses to drop its hostile policy toward it. Availing ourselves of this opportunity, we have something to be made clear to the U.S. which is putting on airs over the matter of DPRK-U.S. improved relations.
Improved relations between countries are not a gift presented by one side to the other. The U.S. describes its improved relations with the DPRK as a sort of benefit to the latter. But this is a manifestation of its arrogance and impudent behavior.
The U.S. should make a bold decision to renounce its anachronistic view and stand full of self-righteousness and arrogance.
