Pyongyang, May 17 (KCNA) — The South Headquarters of the National Alliance of Youth and Students for the Country’s Reunification in a statement on May 12 reportedly demanded the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of south Korea properly see through the nature of the situation, though belatedly, and drop its pro-U.S. diplomacy without delay.
The north successfully unloaded the spent fuel rods from the pilot nuclear plant and clarified its stand that it would take further necessary steps to increase its nuclear arsenal for the defensive purpose of coping with the prevailing situation, with a main emphasis on developing the self-reliant nuclear power industry, the statement said, and went on:
As soon as this position was made public, the ministry lost no time to release a commentary in which it let loose such balderdash as “it was a measure to strain the situation in contravention of the process to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula” and “the north should return to the six-country talks without delay”. This is nothing but a rash act of the diplomatic authorities of this land diametrically running counter to the common interests of the nation.
Whenever the situation got strained over the north’s nuclear issue, the ministry asked the U.S. chiefly accountable for it to have “negotiation” and “consultation” but pointed an accusing finger at the north where compatriots live.
