KCNA Report on Cutting off All North-South Communication Lines

Date: 08/06/2020 | Source: KCNA.kp (En) | Read original version at source

Pyongyang, June 9 (KCNA) -- The Korean Central News Agency made public the following report on June 9:

The south Korean authorities connived at the hostile acts against the DPRK by the riff-raff, while trying to dodge heavy responsibility with nasty excuses. This has driven the inter-Korean relations into a catastrophe.

All the people of the DPRK have been angered by the treacherous and cunning behavior of the south Korean authorities with whom we still have lots of accounts to settle.

The disgusting riff-raff have committed hostile acts against the DPRK by taking advantage of the south Korean authorities' irresponsible stance and with their connivance. They dared to hurt the dignity of our supreme leadership and mock the sacred mental core of all our people. This was a sign of hostility to all our people.

As far as the issue of the dignity of our supreme leadership is concerned, there can neither be a pardon nor an opportunity.

They should be forced to pay dearly for this.

We will never barter the dignity of our supreme leadership for anything, but defend it at the cost of our lives.

We have reached a conclusion that there is no need to sit face to face with the south Korean authorities and there is no issue to discuss with them, as they have only aroused our dismay.

At the review meeting of the work of the departments for affairs with the south, Kim Yong Chol, vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, and Kim Yo Jong, first vice department director of the C.C., WPK, stressed that the work towards the south should thoroughly turn into the one against enemy. They discussed phased plans for the work against the enemy in order to make the betrayers and riff-raff pay for their crimes, and then, to begin with, gave an instruction to completely cut off all the communication and liaison lines between the north and the south.

Accordingly, the relevant field of our side will completely cut off and shut down the liaison line between the authorities of the north and the south, which has been maintained through the north-south joint liaison office, the East and West Seas communication lines between the militaries of the north and the south, the inter-Korean trial communication line and the hotline between the office building of the Central Committee of the WPK and the Chongwadae from 12:00 on June 9, 2020.

This measure is the first step of the determination to completely shut down all contact means with south Korea and get rid of unnecessary things. -0-
