A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK) gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on July 16, with regard to the DPRK-U.S. working-level talks.

At present, there are widespread public opinions across the world concerning an opening of the DPRK-U.S. working-level talks.

A spokesperson for the DPRK Foreign Ministry made public the following press statement on Tuesday:

The United States and south Korea are going to defiantly conduct a joint military exercise “Alliance 19-2” targeting us in August.

Outwardly, the U.S. is trumpeting that this exercise is a simulation to verify whether the south Korean army is capable of taking over wartime operational control. But, it is crystal clear that it is an actual drill and a rehearsal of war aimed at militarily occupying our Republic by surprise attack and rapid dispatch of large-scale reinforcements under the cloak of “containment” and “counter-offensive” in time of emergency.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea released the following press statement on Tuesday:

The DPRK-U.S. summit meeting and talks held in Singapore in June last year for the first time in history was a momentous occasion of great significance in promoting peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and in the region and advancing the historic trend of reconciliation and cooperation.

The June 12 DPRK-U.S. Joint Statement adopted at the DPRK-U.S. summit meeting and talks enjoyed full support and approval of all countries and peoples across the world, as it proved in practice that even the countries with the most hostile relations could lay out an avenue for establishing new relations once they make politically decisive steps to defend peace and stability, giving these issues a top priority.
