Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Tuesday gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA refuting the sheer lie that a deputy to the Supreme People’s Assembly allegedly working in the field of the munitions industry sought an “asylum” in south Korea, the fiction floated by some media of the U.S. and south Korea:
The fiction is a sheer fabrication as there is no such institution in the north as the “marine industrial institute” to which he allegedly belonged.
The “statement” allegedly made by him was full of lies.
Some unsavory forces fabricated “the issue of a renegade-deserter,” a fiction, in a bid to mislead the public opinion. This is, however, nothing but a despicable and ridiculous plot to tarnish the image of the dignified DPRK.
The DPRK cannot but maintain high vigilance and draw attention to the fact that the hostile forces are getting frantic in their false propaganda against it at a time when the north-south relations are making positive progress and the resumption of the six-party talks for the solution to the nuclear issue is near at hand.
For Spanish-speaking people
