KAPPC Chairman's Statement

Date: 27/10/2019 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

Kim Yong Chol, chairman of the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, (KAPPC) made public a statement on October 27.

The statement reads:

Of late, the US is resorting to the hostile policy towards the DPRK more desperately, misjudging the patience and tolerance of the DPRK.

Finding fault with the DPRK on its measure for bolstering up its military capability for self-defence at the recent meeting of the First Committee of the 74th United Nations General Assembly, the US delegate said the US would not enter the US-DPRK dialogue with its eyes close and north Korea must come up with a new methodology for FFVD, which got on the nerves of the DPRK.

Meanwhile, the US is persistently pressurizing other countries into implementing the UN "sanctions resolutions" and is leaving no stone unturned to get the anti-DPRK resolutions passed in the UN General Assembly, using its satellite countries.

The US strategic forces commander nominee, speaking at the Senate, called the DPRK "a rogue state" out of an evil intent, and the warlike forces of the US military are reportedly planning nuclear strike exercises against the DPRK.

The situation points to the US intent to isolate and stifle the DPRK in a more crafty and vicious way than before, instead of complying with our call for a change in its calculation method.

The DPRK-US relations, which could have been derailed and fallen apart several times due to such hostile acts and wrong habitual practices on the part of the US, are still maintained. It goes to the credit of the close personal relations between Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission and President Trump.

But there is a limit to everything.

The close personal relations between the top leaders of the two countries can never be kept aloof from the public mindset, and they are never a guarantee for preventing the DPRK-US relations from getting aggravated or for making up for.

The US trumpets the crucial measures taken by the DPRK for confidence-building as its own "diplomatic gains", but no substantial progress has been made in the DPRK-US relations and the belligerent relations still persists that there can be the exchange of fire any moment.

The US is seriously mistaken if it has an idea of passing off in peace the end of this year, by exploiting the close personal relations between its President and the Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK for a delaying tactics.

My hope is that the diplomatic adage that there is neither a permanent foe nor a permanent friend does not change into the one that there is a permanent foe but no a permanent friend.
