U.S. Should not Dream about Negotiation for Denuclearization before Dropping Its Hostile Policy towards DPRK

Pyongyang, November 18 (KCNA) -- Kim Yong Chol, chairman of the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, made public the following statement on Nov. 18:

The U.S. secretary of Defense said on Nov. 17 that the U.S. decided to suspend the joint aerial drill with south Korea, adding that north Korea should make a "good response" to the U.S. "measure of good will" and come back to the negotiation without any condition.

The U.S. tries to make a good impression as if it contributes to peace and stability on the Korean peninsula, describing the suspension as "consideration for and concession" to someone. But, we demand that the U.S. quit the drill or stop it once and for all.

The suspension of the drill does not mean ensuring peace and security on the Korean peninsula and is not helpful to the diplomatic efforts for the settlement of issues.

If the U.S. is concerned about the DPRK-U.S. dialogue, the question is why it persistently depends on "human rights" racket, sanctions and pressure aiming at defaming and stifling the DPRK, its dialogue partner.

From the viewpoint of the international community, such behavior of the U.S. may be seen vague as the one confused and contradictory, but the DPRK clearly see it.

The U.S. is resorting to every crafty artifice, obsessed with hostility towards the DPRK, seeking to earn time to get out of the critical situation in the run-up to the year in and year out.

The U.S. always calls for negotiation for denuclearization, but there is no room to say about the negotiation before the complete and irrevocable withdrawal of its hostile policy toward the DPRK, the root cause of the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula.

We have nothing pressing and have no intention to sit on the table with the tricky U.S.

From now on, the DPRK will get due compensation for every administrative achievement the U.S. president has talked too much about for over a year.

It will be possible to consult the denuclearization only when confidence-building between the DPRK and the U.S. goes first and all the threats to the security and development of the DPRK are removed, rather than discuss the issues for the improvement of DPRK-U.S. relations and establishment of peace mechanism within the framework of negotiation for denuclearization.

The U.S. should not dream of the negotiations for denuclearization before dropping its hostile policy toward the DPRK. -0-
