Spokesman for DPRK Foreign Ministry on Bush’s Remarks

Pyongyang, June 3 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Friday gave an answer to a question put by KCNA as regards U.S. President Bush’s remarks about the Korean issue made at a press conference.

He said:

Bush was reported to have said “Mr.”, politely addressing our headquarters of revolution” at a press conference held at the White House on May 31. We take note of this. We keep a tab on a string of vituperation let loose by high-ranking officials of the U.S. administration against the DPRK even some days ago.

If Bush’s remarks put an end to the scramble between the hawkish group and the moderate group in the U.S., which has thrown the Korean policy into a state of confusion, it would help create an atmosphere of the six-party talks.

We will closely follow if his remarks would not change day and night as this happened in the past.

If the U.S. truly wants a peaceful solution to the nuclear issue, it should make a bold decision to withdraw the remark “an outpost of tyranny” to remove the biggest hurdle lying in the way of resuming the six-party talks.
