Kim Yong Chol, chairman of the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, made public the following statement on November 18:

The US Secretary of Defense said on November 17 that the US decided to suspend the joint aerial drill with south Korea, adding that north Korea should make a "good response" to its "measure of good will" and come back to the negotiation without any conditions attached.

The US 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 US drop out of 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 US is concerned about the DPRK-US 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 behaviour of the US may be seen vague as the one confused and contradictory, but the DPRK clearly sees it.

The US is still resorting to every crafty artifice, obsessed with hostility towards the DPRK, seeking to gain time to get out of the critical situation in the run-up to the year-end and the beginning of the new year.

It 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 towards 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 US.

From now on, the DPRK will get due compensation for every administrative achievement the US 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 US 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 bilateral relations and establishment of peace mechanism within the framework of negotiation for denuclearization.

The US is well advised not to dream of the negotiations for denuclearization before scrapping its hostile policy towards the DPRK.
