Hostility and Confrontation Will Bring Ruin and Disaster: KCNA Commentary

The Japan Air “Self-Defense Force” recently staged at a park in Aichi Prefecture a drill for deploying a Patriot interceptor missile system before the eyes of the press.

Similar drills were staged in the middle of Tokyo and in the compound of the Defense Ministry under the pretext of “coping with a missile threat” from someone in last October.

The ever-mounting reckless moves of the Japanese reactionaries are a clear manifestation of their unchanged hostile policy towards the DPRK and an intolerable provocation to it.

Rabid Dog Must Be Beaten to Death: KCNA Commentary

A rabid dog in the U.S. has another fit of spasm, being greedy for power.

Biden, bereft of elementary quality as a human being, much less a politician, again reeled off a string of rubbish against the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK.

A crow is never whiter for often washing. Biden, still going reckless, not coming to his senses though he was censured and rejected by all people, must be a rabid dog only keen on getting at others’ throats.

Chairman of Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee Issues Statement

Kim Yong Chol, Chairman of the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, made public the following statement on Thursday:

I took note of the remark made by the U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper on November 13 that he would adjust the U.S.-south Korea joint military drill for the progress of the DPRK-U.S. negotiations.

As the remark of the U.S. Secretary of Defense was made just after the announcement of the statement of the spokesperson for the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, I would like to understand it as the U.S. intention to drop out of the joint military drill or completely stop it.

Japan is urged not to twist spirit of DPRK-Japan Pyongyang Declaration

Nowadays, Japanese politicians are becoming habitual in saying that they would seek a comprehensive solution to pending issues including abduction, nukes and missiles, liquidate the unpleasant past and move towards a normalization of state relations on the basis of the DPRK-Japan Pyongyang Declaration, and they are making nonsensical remarks that these issues should be discussed at an “unconditional” DPRK-Japan summit.

If I may state my conclusion first, the argument – that pending issues including abduction, nukes and missiles should be settled before the past is to be liquidated on the basis of the DPRK-Japan Pyongyang Declaration – is a sophistry which cruelly twists the spirit and the basic principle of the Declaration.

The DPRK-Japan Pyongyang Declaration adopted on September 17, 2002 affirmed a shared understanding that liquidation of the unpleasant past between the DPRK and Japan, solution to the pending issues, and establishment of fruitful relations in the fields of politics, economy and culture would conform with the fundamental interests of both sides and constitute a great contribution to peace and stability of the region.

Press Statement Issued by Adviser from Korea-Europe Association

Kim Son Gyong, Adviser from the Korea-Europe Association released the following statement on Thursday:

The United Kingdom, France and Germany, which were recently denouncing our regular military exercises and self-defensive measures as “provocation” or “violation of resolutions” of the UN Security Council, brought the issue to the UN Security Council and released a so-called 3-state “joint statement” on August 27.

The United Kingdom, France and Germany are meddling every time with our self-defensive measures for arms modernization. These are preposterous actions which no one will ever understand.
