Pyongyang, September 9 (KCNA) -- Choe Son Hui, first vice foreign minister of the DPRK, issued the following statement on Monday:

I gave heed to the recent repeated remarks of high-ranking U.S. officials leading the negotiations with the DPRK that they are ready for the DPRK-U.S. working negotiation.

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the State Affairs Commission, clarified his stand at the historic Policy Speech in April that it is essential for the U.S. to quit its current calculation method and approach us with new one and we will wait for a bold decision from the U.S. with patience till the end of this year.

I think the U.S. has since had enough time to find the calculation method that it can share with us.

We have willingness to sit with the U.S. side for comprehensive discussions of the issues we have so far taken up at the time and place to be agreed late in September.

I believe that the U.S. side will come out with a proposal geared to the interests of the DPRK and the U.S. and based on the calculation method acceptable to us.

If the U.S. side fingers again the worn-out scenario which has nothing to do with the new calculation method at the DPRK-U.S. working negotiation to be held with so much effort, the DPRK-U.S. dealings may come to an end. -0-
