Chairman of Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee Issues Statement

Date: 09/12/2019 | Source: KCNA.kp (En) | Read original version at source

Pyongyang, December 9 (KCNA) -- Kim Yong Chol, chairman of the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, issued the following statement on Dec. 9:

The U.S. president continues using inappropriate and highly risky words and expressions even after our Dec. 5 warning.

On Dec. 5 we made clear our stand that we would keep watching the U.S. president whether he repeats irritating expressions stoking the atmosphere of confrontation or not, and that we would view the issue from a different angle in case he deliberately uses odd words and expressions against us again.

As well known to the world, at a press interview and in an article he posted on December 7 and 8, Trump let out loads of words and expressions with implicit threat to someone without any calculation that he doesn't think north Korea wants to interfere in the U.S. election but will keep watching it, he will be surprised if north Korea takes hostile action and it will lose everything if it does so.

Such language is, indeed, disappointing.

This naturally indicates that Trump is an old man bereft of patience.

From those words and expressions we can read how irritated he is now.

As he is such a heedless and erratic old man, the time when we can not but call him a "dotard" again may come.

We make clear once again that the Chairman of our State Affairs Commission has not used any irritating expression towards the U.S. president as yet.

Of course it could be a sign of self-restraint but there has not been any yet.

But if thing continues to go this way, our Chairman's understanding of Trump may change, I think.

If Trump's acts and words were meant to be addressed toward us, he must understand that his own style bluffing and hypocrisy sound rather abnormal and unrealistic to us and that every word made by him is heard with derision.

After receiving his erratic utterances, we have no intention to reconsider what we should do in the future, and will not feel worried about our future action.

Trump has too many things that he does not know about the DPRK.

We have nothing more to lose.

Though the U.S. may take away anything more from us, it can never remove the strong sense of self-respect, might and resentment against the U.S. from us.

Trump said that if we undertake an action, he would be surprised, and of course he will be astonished.

Our action is for his surprise. So, if he does not get astonished, we will be irritated.

This year is closing.

If the U.S. has will and wisdom to stop the second-hand of clash, it would be a better option for it to spend time to calculate in anguish for it rather than choosing bluffing and threatening expressions as now.

Stalling for time is not a ready-made solution.

If the U.S. has no will and wisdom, it can not but watch with anxiety the reality in which the threat to its security increases with the passage of time. -0-
