Ri Yong Ho Issues a Statement against Pompeo

Date: 24/08/2019 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

DPRK Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho made public the following statement August 23:

US State Secretary Pompeo, during an interview with a US newspaper on August 21, said if the DPRK does not set out to denuclearize itself, the US will maintain the strongest sanctions in history to make it confirm that the denuclearization is the right way.

Just as a saying goes "A crow never becomes whiter for often washing", he is the diehard toxin of the US diplomacy.

On April 24 he talked about a "lane change" in an interview with the US media, only to be snubbed.

Nothing decent can be expected from Pompeo, a man subject to strong censure from many countries for adopting the most wicked methods of the CIA as diplomatic means in every part of the world. But what arouses concerns is a string of senseless remarks made by the man leading the US negotiation team now that the DPRK-US dialogue is high on the agenda.

There is a proverb saying "Sow the wind and reap the whirlwind". Now that he made a rhetoric about the DPRK without elementary obligation as a human being, losing his face as the diplomatic leader of a country, I cannot but respond to it in kind.

Is he really the man who would beg for denuclearization and pledge the establishment of new DPRK-US relations when he met the Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK during his several visits to Pyongyang?

He who has no shame has no conscience. He is truly impudent enough to utter such thoughtless words which only leave us disappointed and sceptical as to whether we can solve any problem with such a guy.

The whole world understands that the US is the chieftain which spawned the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula and which makes its solution difficult.

Furthermore, what the US has done since the adoption of the June 12 DPRK-US joint statement was the  holding of war exercises against the dialogue partner nonstop on and around the Korean peninsula and the shipping of strategic assets to it only to make the issue further complicated.

Now he repeats to resort to the hackneyed sanctions rhetoric, misleading the truth. He must be a trouble-maker bereft of sensible cogitative power and rational judgment as he only casts dark shadow over the prospect of the DPRK-US negotiations.

All things to which Pompeo has thrusted himself go wrong and end up in failure though they showed signs of positive developments. He surely seems to be more interested in realizing his future "political ambition" rather than the current foreign policy of his country.

We have already given ample explanation enough to be understood by the US side and also given it enough time out of maximum patience.

If the US still has a pipe dream of gaining everything from sanctions, we are given the alternatives of leaving it dreaming that same dream to its heart's content or to wake it up from the dream.

We are ready for both dialogue and stand-off.

The US is sadly mistaken if it still thinks of standing in confrontation with the DPRK with sanctions, not dropping its confrontational stand.

Then, we will remain as the biggest "threat" to the US for long and long and will make it understand for sure what it has to do for the denuclearization.
