Statement of First Vice Foreign Minister of DPRK

Words “DPRK-U.S. summit” which have become dim even in our memory have become a topic for conversation from some days ago, drawing the attention of the international community.

There is a person who thoughtlessly voices an intention to mediate the summit, utterly regardless of what we, the dialogue party, would think of it, and there is rumor that the U.S. ruling quarters admit the need to hold DPRK-U.S. summit before the U.S. presidential election.

There are even some dreamers hoping to leverage our denuclearization measures for conditional lifting of sanctions, while raising hope for “October surprise.”

Press Statement Issued by Vice-Minister for European Affairs of DPRK Foreign Ministry

Kim Son Gyong, vice-minister for European Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea issued the following statement on Wednesday:

On June 16, the spokesperson for Foreign Affairs & Security Policy led by the High Representative of the European Union picked a quarrel with the DPRK’s measure of completely destroying the north-south joint liaison office and overrode her commission in making absurd remarks that the DPRK should avoid any action that could raise tension and that it is imperative for the DPRK to open the lines of communication to avoid misunderstanding and miscalculation. She also said that the EU encourages dialogue for denuclearization on the Korean peninsula and the restart of a sustained diplomatic process aimed at building trust and establishing lasting peace and security on the Korean peninsula, free of nuclear weapons at the earliest possible time.

We are now pretty immune to such gibberish of the EU, but I didn’t know that the EU’s power of judgment was at such low level.

Press Statement by Director-General of Department of U.S. Affairs of Foreign Ministry of DPRK

Kwon Jong Gun, Director-General of the Department of U.S. Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, released the following statement on Saturday:

On June 12, an official in the south Korean “foreign affairs authority” made presumptuous remarks that they will make extended endeavor for an earlier resumption of the DPRK-U.S. dialogue and that the efforts should continue for a complete denuclearization and an establishment of a permanent peace mechanism on the Korean peninsula.

It is really preposterous to hear the balderdash of south Korean authorities-who do not have either any qualification to discuss, or the position to poke their noses into, the matters between the DPRK and the U.S., to say nothing of nuclear issues – are commenting on the resumption of DPRK-U.S. dialogue and interpreting the issue of denuclearization at their own choice.
