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

Our First Vice Foreign Minister recently made clear her stand in a statement over untimely “rumor about a DPRK-U.S. summit.”

The statement also mentioned the meddlesome man who had again indicated his intention to arbitrate between the DPRK and the U.S. regardless of time.

Our stand was as clear as day to be easily understood by the south, because they use the same language as us.

Nevertheless, such nonsensical talks that there is no change in their efforts to mediate a DPRK-U.S. summit are ceaselessly heard from the south. They seem to have a bad ear or are guided by the habit of always talking in their own favor.

To top it all, some people make self-centered interpretation of our First Vice Foreign Minister’s statement that it is “a message urging the U.S. to act” and “a kind of asking for more concession.”

Irony is that the south, which fail to manage their own business, came out to offer “a helping hand” allegedly to solve the DPRK-U.S. relations which are getting more and more complicated.

It is just time for them to stop meddling in other’s affairs but it seems there is no cure or prescription for their bad habit.

The inter-Korean relations are bound to go further bankrupt as they only talk nonsense, unaware of the time.

We feel sorry to see them trying so hard to become the “mediator” but they may try as much as they want if they cherish so strong wish to try it to the end.

Time will show whether their efforts will succeed or they will only suffer a loss and ridicule.

Explicitly speaking once again, we have no intention to sit face to face with the U.S.
