Pyongyang, January 23 (KCNA) — The north-south communication lines that had been shut down are now resumed and a door to dialogue that had been stalled is opened. At Panmunjom the fellow countrymen in the north and south sat face to face, making a promise to take a first starting step for the improvement of the north-south ties and producing results startling the world one after another.
However, the die-hard conservative media of south Korea, seized by submission toward the U.S. and confrontation with the fellow countrymen, are now barking like a rabid dog, disclosing their sordid nature, quite contrary to the prevailing situation, Rodong Sinmun says in an article Tuesday, adding:
It was the south Koreans and the mindset of the inhabitants in the area hosting the Olympics that have longed for the dispatch of the DPRK’s players’ group and cheering group to the Olympics, regarding it as a crucial issue on which hinges the success of the Olympics.
With full consideration of such mindset of the south Koreans and out of sincere hope for the successful holding of the international games which are to be held in the area near the Military Demarcation Line, we made a bold and magnanimous proposal startling the world at the outset of the year.
It goes without saying that it is south Korea which is to benefit most from the great measures taken by the DPRK.
However, those who are not able to put even a bowl of rice on the feast table, are spouting criticism, far from making a deep bow of thanks. They are, indeed, a group of ignorant gangsters bereft of elementary obligation and duty, to say nothing of the qualifications as media persons.
We warn once again the south Korean conservative media persons that the north-south relationship may be disrupted though it took the first good step and an unpredictable incident may occur due to misrepresentation made by them not being thoughtful of the possible consequences.
